Hello again!  This week at CAS Colours & Sketches we have a simple little sketch challenge up for the offering.

Since Father’s Day was last Sunday here in the United States, I used the sketch to create a card for my husband.  I pulled out my pastel chalks to color the deer image because I wanted a soft look to the coloring.  I hadn’t used those in a very long time!  A couple pieces of ribbon that coordinated with the deer worked for the two small elements of the sketch.  It’s hard to tell in the photo, but I used textured cardstock for the card base, to give it a little extra visual interest.  I attached the focal panel to the card base with dimensional adhesive to accommodate the thickness of the ribbon.  I had chosen the deer image thinking that it looked like a parent and child.  It wasn’t until I was pressing down on the focal panel, making sure it was securely adhered, that I realized that the larger deer is likely a doe rather than a buck… making it not quite the right image for Father’s Day… but oh well.
