Circle Round for a CAS(E) of Less is More...

Second post for the day!



I couldn't wait to play along with the new CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge - CAS and CASE - what a FAB combination!  I thought I'd challenge myself and incorporate the Less is More One Layer - Wings challenge too.  I have been wanting to try this technique for a while now - stamping  and highlighting only one area of the stamped image, so I stamped my layers by masking and stamping the Kaisercraft butterfly, and Deasy Designs flower and sentiment, before lightly tracing a circle in pencil around the area I wanted to highlight.  Big mistake as I made a mess when trying to rub out my pencil - next time I'd bite the bullet and just draw my line in ink across the relevant sections.  I coloured my image just using textas - a better choice for a one layer card as Copic markers bleed through the paper - leaving the inside of your card messy ;)

Thought this was perfect for joining in with Catered Crops Circle Round too.

This made me smile...
