Well hi there!  It’s finally the first Tuesday of August, and this month at CAS Colours & Sketches some of the design team members are taking turns hosting a week.  I get to kick things off with this week’s color challenge.

I picked some deep rich colors inspired by nature.  Even though I chose them, it still took me a while to decide what I wanted to make for this challenge.  I browsed through my stamps and settled on this sweet little fawn, thinking that I could make a little scene with him.  Then I needed to figure out a layout for my card.  This week’s sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! seemed like it would work, but I made a few modifications to it.  I used the mirror image of the sketch, so that the fawn would be “looking” into the center of the card rather than off the edge of the card.  The fawn takes the place of the light square element, and I’ve dropped the one horizontal panel so that it could work as the grass for my fawn to stand on.  I created the nighttime sky by blending my darkest blue gel crayon on shimmery white cardstock and then splattering it with some white shimmery paint for stars.  A few splatters smeared a bit but that’s OK; I think it seems to add to the nighttime feel.
