CAS(E) this Sketch # 253 and Altenew Inspiration Jan 2018

I have finally set up my new ScanNCut machine... and am starting to play.



Today I saw a sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch that looked so nice and easy to do.

Just love the simplicity of the sketch.  Right up my alley for sure.   I decided I wanted to do a sort of wallpaper look to the top portion.   So out came some Altenew flowers (Amazing You set) and some masking tape.... 


I also stamped one flower and two leaves onto some card and coloured in with Prismacolor pencils.  My new machine got a try out, cutting them out.  Made the border a tad too large, but that was okay.  All in all - awesome! I popped the cut out flower and leaves on some mounting tape.   I really like how this turned out. 

The colours are taken from the Altenew Inspiration for Jan 2018

 

As this is an encouragement card I am also adding it to the challenge at CASology - cue word Encouragement 

 

And also the "Something New" Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.  - using my new ScanNCut is my something new!

 Off to try some more stamping, colouring and cutting...

Thanks for stopping by
