Hello!  We’re back to another color challenge week at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I have to admit that I had a hard time figuring out what to do with these colors, mainly because the chocolate brown was the only one I’ve seen in person.  So I browsed online and eventually found a few blogs where the new Stampin’ Up In Colors were compared to other SU colors.  I think I’ve picked fairly close approximates of the challenge colors for the watercolor wash on my card.  I decided to try to use the colors as a background, rather than for the main image of the card.  Blending the colors fits the current challenge at AAA Cards.  When I was browsing my stamps for silhouette images to use with the background, I came across this Eiffel Tower stamp I’d forgotten I had.  So I decided to use it and join in the current challenge at Less is More.  Once the watercolor wash was dry, I added the sentiment and the silhouette image of the Eiffel Tower in chocolate brown.  I rounded the top corner of the card and decided to call it done.  Very CAS, n’est-ce pas?
