Hello! It’s the third Thursday of the month, which means it’s time for a new color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches. This week we have a monochromatic scheme with a metallic highlight. That sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
I decided to go the floral route with the two purples in the challenge colors. I considered stamping the flowers, but in the end I chose to punch them from cardstock and use silver brads for the centers to get in more of the metallic color. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with silver ink and silver embossing powder, and then arranged the punched flowers around it. The layout for the card comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you’ll join us over at CAS Colours & Sketches with your own take on these colors! You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, February 24 to link your card at the challenge website.
