CAS(E) this Sketch 2 - Take 2



Quick, quick post for a last minute inspiration for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch:



I used MFT's monogram alphabet (V) and an old Stampin' Up sentiment.

ETA - to place the v's, I used a reverse mask cut from a circle nestability. I found the centre of the circle (by using the cut out circle folded in half, I laid it on the empty circle twice, drawing the diameter - the centre is where the two diameters meet). Then I just stamped the black ones at 12, 3 and 6 o'clock and filled in the rest. For the sentiment, I used a stampamajig.

The big circle!! Great masculine colour scheme, and I like how you've placed the sentiment through the circle. Or the circle through the sentiment. Either way, I love it!

You did it again! What a brilliant card! And the photo is fine, I would say you don't need to retake it! But I would like to know how you placed those V's so perfectly? And the placement of the sentiment? Just brilliant!
