Hello! It’s the third Thursday of the month, which means it’s color challenge time again at CAS Colours & Sketches.
The colors made me think of nature. For the focal panel of my card, I made a watercolor wash with Bermuda Bay ink. When it was dry, I stamped a wildflower image on it with a light color of ink. Then I used watercolors to paint over the image. I added in a touch of shimmery paint on a few of the flowers. Then I die cut the circle and the sentiment. The two vertical strips were stamped with subtle prints to give them a little extra visual texture. The focal panel is popped up over them with dimensional adhesive. The layout for this card comes from this week’s challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. I know that Send a Smile 4 Kids often needs cards for the teenagers they aim to serve, and I think this card will be suitable for that purpose.
Our curious furball wanted to know what was going on when I was photographing the card…
Now it’s your turn! Go see what the rest of the design team has done with these colors. Then show us what you can create with them! You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, September 21 to link your card at the CC&S challenge site. Thanks for stopping by today!
