CAS(E) this Sketch

Hello and good morning!

Way back in May,  I was asked by the lovely Chrissy Larson if I would like to Guest Design this week over at


I was thrilled! What an honour!

Here's the sketch for this week


I have to confess that when I saw it I was kinda dumfounded... It took me a while to work out those shapes - I'm pretty pedantic when it comes to sketches so getting those unusual circles shapes right was a challenge

Here's what I came up with


The paint effect paper I used was a free desktop wallpaper I found Here - I just loved those happy colours and to tie them in I sponged Memento Ink in Cantaloupe on some CS cut a bunch of circle shapes, printed a digital paper in the blue shade for the BG and then just cut and fiddled with those shapes till I got it right


Once everything was in place I use a stitched rectangle die to cut it all out and added Ellie and my sentiment


I am so looking forward to seeing what the rest of the team come up with this week so I'm off to the Blog to take a peek ...
Thanks so much Chrissy and the team for having me with you this week - I hope I did this sketch justice

Have a lovely day everyone

Congratulations on your guest designer spot Ros, they are lucky to have you for inspiration!! This is wonderful, love that paint background you found and the little elephant is so cute!! hugs :)

Barbara said...

Oh, lovely! The colors are a perfect match and I love how you found the sequins to go with it! And yes, you are a bit on the pedantic side with those circles (as I would probably be, too - it's often too much to ask to even turn the sketch by 90°)... but you made them just right!

I would never have tried to replicate those shapes, but you did it perfectly, Ros! Love how you use digital papers--the background is such a neat look--darling card! CTS is lucky to have you design with them!
