Bank Holiday Monday

Addicted to CAS has the code word rainbow this week.
I decided to go with inking a piece of card in rainbow colours with Copics, to use as the backdrop behind some die cut letters. I die-cut the word panel with a rectangular Nestie, which I elongated a little to accommodate the whole word.
I then added the little bee from A Day for Daisies, also coloured with Copics.
This one uses the sketch from Retro Sketches and a stamp from Blockheads. It is actually a huge stamp, so I stamped it and then scanned it so that I could use it in a reduced size. It's coloured with watercolour pencils and a water brush.
I added a scrap of Pink Petticoat DP and a length of green twine.
This final one uses elements from Casual Friday's Tic Tac Toe. 
I chose Punches or Dies, Text and Black and White.

I also based it on the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch

I really love the effect of this technique.

The sun is shining, I really should get out and do a little tidying in the garden today.
