RetroSketches #16

Well hello there!!
It's time for me to share with you another fabulous RetroSketches sketch.

This week's sketch comes to you from our guest designer N@.
She is a fabulous CAS designer. 
Head on over to her blog to check out her AMAZING card on which this sketch is based.

Now at first look this may look a little daunting, but as Arielle said, this is a perfect time for a little "out of the box" thinking!!

I chose to focus on the general layout and all of her wonderful layering.

Now my layering comes in a one layer form, but there is still lots of layers!!
Well at least that's what I'm telling myself. :)

I used PTI's "love birds". 
Again I cut apart a stamp that came as two birds because they were too close together to ink up in different colours.
I also embossed the base card with their woodgrain impression plate.

Head on over to the RetroSketches blog to admire N@'s remake and the samples from Arielle, Jackie and Laurie.

We can't wait to see how you interpret this sketch.
You have until Thursday June 21st at midnight to link up.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend!!


  1. Fabulous take on the sketch - those rainbow birds are adorable!

  2. What an incredible idea. You have done such an amazing card with the coloured love birds inside the cages. I think I need to CASE this one.

  3. This is beautiful! I was a little intimidated by this sketch, but your take makes sense to me. Great design! :)

  4. Yikes, that's one heck of a sketch! I love your take on it!

  5. Your bright birds are SO pretty.

  6. Love your interpretation of the sketch Kasia :)

  7. I love how you took what could be complex and made it CAS! Those rainbow birds are FABULOUS. :)

  8. Super fab take on the sketch! LOVE those fun coloured birds and cages!

  9. Kasia, I love your take on the sketch. It doesn't look over crowded, yet there is so much to look at. I love the different colored birds, too :)

  10. Oh what a darling rainbow of birds!!

  11. Your take on the sketch is so creative! Love the rainbow birds!

  12. Okay, when I first looked just at the sketch, I thought, now that is going to be one hard sketch to transform into CAS -- and then you do it perfectly!

  13. what a fun, cool-lookin' card! You've even got the rainbow thing going on like the inspiration card, in a subtle way. Love your clean card Kasia!

  14. I'm always amazed by N@ work and loved her white-on-white take, but then I scrolled down and was uber amazed by your card. Fabulous. Even the sentiment font/placement.

  15. Love those rainbow colored birds paired with crisp white woodgrain!

  16. What a fantastic design, the overlapping cages and rainbow colours really caught my how you used the sketch :0)
