Thank you for CAS Colours & Sketches


Today there’s a colour challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches:

CC&S color165-001

I really like these colours and my my mind went to water and sand (I know, it’s a bit red!) although when I started to craft I didn’t start there.  It turned out though, that my crafting mojo had gone on holiday, as I really stugggled.  And the more I worried, the worse it got.  Until I was reminded that I do this for fun and to relax (and get things into perspective).  So, vaguely thinking about my original beach-ish theme, I started again and came up with this:

Butterfly Basics, What I Love, CC&S #165

I have to say that it looks better in real life, as there’s a real sense of perspective leading your eye into the distance.  I scribbled the three colours onto a block and spritzed it and smoothed White Shimmer card over it, using my brayer to ensure even contact.  I spritzed  again, then put it under some grid paper to dry.  I stamped the flower image from Butterfly Basics and the leaves and “Thank You” from What I Love (if you love this set like I do, you can get it free with a purchase of £45 during Sale-a-bration) in Night of Navy.  I lined the sentiment up with the line of the two blues to emphasize the perspective.  I added a mat of Watermelon Wonder and a Night of Navy base and constructed it all using tombow.

A bit different for me – I’m having a lot of fun with watercolouring and other techniques at the moment!

If you like this or the colours, have a look at the rest of the Design Team entries and enter this week’s challenge – we love seeing what people come up with.

  1. Apparently you went on holiday too and joined your mojo at the beach! Once the two of you go together you produced a very fun card. I love the texture that this technique produced. Liz x
