Hello!  It’s color challenge week at CAS Colours & Sketches and we have a bright and cheery color combo to work with.

This color combination seemed pretty gender neutral to me so I decided to use it for a birthday card that I can donate to Send a Smile 4 Kids.  The current challenges at AAA Cards and Less is More seemed interesting, so I’ve combined them with the CC&S challenge.  I started off by working with scrap paper to create a mask that divided my card into thirds on a diagonal.  I put the mask in place on my card front and centered a stencil in it.  Then I masked off portions of the stencil with washi tape so I could brush ink in the three challenge colors, keeping the colors separated from each other.  Once I got the colors all done, I removed the masks and stamped the sentiment with black ink.  The card still looked like something was missing, so I scored a trio of lines both above and below the inked portion of the card.
