CTS117 - Merci Beaucoup!


Can you even stand yet another Bold Blooms card from me?! I hope so - I think this one is different from my others. I love how the leaves look like stained glass. I stamped them using my new MISTI to help with positioning and then coloured them with some cool-toned Copics. I used (loosely) the sketch from this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge:



I used an Impression Obsession sentiment that had a similar line thickness (this helps preserve unity in the design). Then I stamped the 3 dots from the Bold Blooms set a few times to pick up on the dot on the i.
