Be Brave for CAS Colours & Sketches


This week we have a sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches and Louise has set us this to play with:

sketch 171

Interesting, yes?

I will say that I thought long and hard and played with a few ideas, but ultimately decided to use my favourite retiring in-colour (let’s hear it for Lost Lagoon!) and two sets I’ve really enjoyed which are also retiring, Going Global and Enjoy the Little Things.  When I checked this morning both sets were still available so if you want to grab them before they go click on the “Shop Now” button at the right of this post!

Anyway, back to the card:

I do love a card with one colour and a neutral!  Here we have the compass from Going Global stamped in Lost Lagoon on a Very Vanilla mat.  It’s surrounded by curves cut out of one of the Going Places DSP stack using two sizes of circle framelit dies – the pattern is Lost Lagoon of course, along with Very Vanilla.  Finally, I stamped “Be Brave” from Enjoy the Little Things and put it slightly off centre to represent the placement in the sketch and put it together on a Lost Lagoon base.  I love Lost Lagoon and will miss it a lot – I’ll continue to use it on my own personal cards, that’s for sure!

Hope you like it.
