CAS(E) this Sketch #69

Have been having so much fun playing around with my new Mama Elephant ink pads. But have realised I now need to retrain my brain to stamping my sentiments etc in colour, not black all the time, which is harder than I thought!

Isn't this sketch brilliant?? When I first saw it I immediately thought of flowers but I actually don't own any flower stamps, so that was hopeless. I came up with my idea yesterday while walking the dogs.
I didn't make this card easy for myself thats for sure! The heart stamp is actually 6 hearts in a row but only wanted to use 3. So before inking I had to washi tape over the top 3 hearts every time. I mucked up one card because I kept forgetting to take the washi tape off before stamping....what a mess it made!! 

I used Smoke and Bubblegum ink from Mama Elephant. The sentiment stamp is from CAS-ual Fridays 'Shenanigans'. The heart stamp is from Studio G and enamel dots from Teresa Collins. I also used my faithful Wink of Stella on all the pink hearts for a bit of sparkle.

Quite like how it turned out and even my husband just came past and said 'Wow, the pattern is amazing', so that must be good!! However I certainly don't expect to win anything in this challenge as the other cards entered are incredible!!! So many beautiful cards, you really should have a look at CAS(E) this Sketch #69 .

Off to walk dogs now in the sun. I wonder what creation I will think of this time!!!

Take care



  1. Expect the unexpected. This card is certainly qualified. It is wonderful.

  2. Oh my goodness...this is just too cute! I love all your hearts and they are lined up so perfectly!

  3. This was definitely worth all the effort, Shona ... fabulous pattern, so perfectly precise ... and more yummy shimmer ... delish! Anita :)
