Well hi there!  It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for a new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  This week we have a sketch challenge to use to show off your CAS skills.

I’ve stretched the sketch out from a square to a landscape-oriented rectangle.  The designer paper for the background tag gave me the color scheme for my card.  I’ve used one of my newest stamp sets for the focal point tag.  It took me a little while to figure out what I was going to do for the sketchy circular element.  Finally I traced around one of my circle dies lightly with a pencil to get the basic shape and size, added a bit of glue around that, and stuck some coordinating twine into the glue.  Then I used dimensional adhesive to attach the tags to the card over top the twine.

  1. Your twine loops sure turned out neat. I had the same problem but ended up hiding mine a bit under the tags. The colours look fab too

  2. Those sketchy circles had me puzzled too. Great technique you used to keep the twine in place perfectly.

  3. I love your take on my sketch Patricia, especially the colour scheme. It’s interesting to see how everyone has interpreted the background circles, all so different! Stef x
