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

There is a myriad of things that can be done within the blocks on the sketch – and of course, the sketch can be rotated if one pleases.  I decided to keep true to the way the sketch was drawn and create a little scene in the square, and add the sentiment in the rectangle to the right of it.  I used watercolor pencils softened with blender pens to color the image.  This is not one of my best coloring jobs, but I wanted to keep it sort of sketchy looking to go with the look of the stamp.  Not adding color at all would have made the card look a little too “bare”.  Even though the sentiment says “thank you”, when it’s paired with the scene, I think it could work as a Father’s Day card, too.  The card base is textured cardstock to keep the card from looking too plain.
