You are Awesome, CAS Colours & Sketches!


It’s time for another CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge.  It’s the first of the month, so we have a new hostess – Karen.  She’s given us this great colour trio to play with:

CC&S color189-001

I love these bright bold colours and it led me to using a stamp set I’ve had a while although this is its first outing.  Whoops.

The stamp set is called Marquee Messages and I’ve used three of the stamps here. “You Are” and “Awesome” are two stamps, while the “border” is one stamp.  I used my Stampin’ Markers for this.  I decided to make the Daffodil Delight stand out more by stamping in Versamark first, wiping it from the areas I didn’t want it, colouring in the Daffodil Delight and other colours, then adding clear embossing powder and heat embossing.  Yes, it was a bit fiddly, but I’m pleased with how it turned out.

As for the title of my blog, well, I think CC&S is awesome!  I feel very privileged to be on the Design Team and part of such a great group.  One of our Design Team, Louise, has decided to stand down to concentrate on other things and she will be be missed.  She has been part of this team for quite a few years and was very welcoming when I joined back in January.  She’s awesome too!

That’s it for today – fancy trying this challenge?  Please do- we love to see what you come up with!

See you on Sunday.
