Good morning! This week’s CAS – Colours and Sketches challenge is a sketch challenge. I’ve combined it with the Dynamic Duos deep oranges color challenge. I’ve taken the liberty of adding in a mat to highlight the color challenge combo, as well as turning the sketch on its side. The leaves are digital images that I’ve colored using a watercoloring technique. I used Tangerine Tango on the maple leaves and Cajun Craze on the other leaves (they look more like redbud leaves to me than any other kind, but feel welcome to leave me a comment to correct me if I’m wrong). However, once they dried, they all ended up looking pretty similar in color. Oh well. After all the fussy cutting was done, it still made a nice autumn-looking card for Operation Write Home. The maple leaf on the left has a cardstock shim under it, and the maple leaf on the right is adhered with pop dots, to give a little bit of dimension to the card.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you’ll join us over at CAS – Colours and Sketches with your own take on this sketch! You have until noon eastern time Wednesday, July 3 to link your card at the challenge website.
