Can You Case it #102 - Sketch Challenge

Wow, here we are with my second Can you Case It challenge. I absolute love being a Design Team member and part of this amazing group of people. I'm so excited to see what everyone has made each week and this week is no exception.

Today, the team are sharing a sketch challenge with you all:
As with any sketch, this is just your inspiration so you can put your own spin on it, which is exactly what I did:

My beautiful niece was turning 6 just after Christmas and she just loves girly things. So when I decided to make her card I knew it had to be filled with lots of pink, texture and plenty of bling. I'm hoping I got that just right for her.

I absolutely love the new Number of Years stamp set. Water colouring is so fashionable at the moment and this set is right on trend. The numbers are a beautiful size, just right for cardmaking and scrapbooking and I'm totally in love with the banner that also has a coordinating framelit. Oh, didn't I mention there are framelits that match this set. No fussy cutting numbers for this little duck!

I made the background by stamping the number '6' over and over and then some of the flowers, on watercolour paper and then gently dropped water on them. As the colours spread, I used paper towel to soak up an excess water.

Of course, adding a strand of blushing bride sequins was a must, to finish the card off.

Now it's over to you!! Pop on over to the CYCI Blog, check out what gorgeous creations the other girls have come up with and have a go yourself. I look forward to see what you have made.

Happy Crafting,

  1. Chloe, I love this card. Your watercolor background using the number and then placing it boldly front and center is really cool. It's got a very elegant and old fashioned appeal.
