CTS#12 - Hugs and Kisses


It's time for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge! Here's the sketch for this week:




I was inspired by this Martha Stewart photo (on my Inspiration board on Pinterest), and  I flipped the sketch right over so that I could use the idea of the hanging hearts.

Diary of a Quilter - a quilt blog: Valentines Projects

I achieved depth and different colours by using generational stamping (stamping again without re-inking the stamp). My sort-of sentiment is a line of hugs and kisses from The Stamps of Life. I used an Impress 'shape', Papertrey's Faux Ribbon and a small circle and two elongated hearts to build my Sign of Love.

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see where this sketch will take you - the Design Team has some amazing examples - take a look and then link up your creation before the deadline - next Tuesday at noon!

There is SO much depth! I figured you were doing a bunch of masking and that is NOT simple - but your generational stamping worked perfectly!!
