Hello there!  It’s the fourth Tuesday of the month, which means it’s sketch challenge time again at CAS Colours & Sketches.  It’s a pretty interesting one and I hope our challenge participants will have fun with it!

I decided to substitute a butterfly for the circular shape.  It’s not exactly circular but it doesn’t take away from the main idea of the sketch.  I started out by cutting the focal panel to size and putting down a piece of washi tape as a mask for the sentiment area.  I’d missed out on one of the CC&S color challenges earlier this month, so I chose those colors as my color scheme.  I stamped the butterfly using the two lightest colors of the combo.  I knew I would use the third color for the sentiment and the card base, but I wanted to incorporate it a bit more.  So I masked off the butterfly, dipped a paintbrush into that color ink, and splattered it around the butterfly.  When that was dry, I peeled off the masks and stamped the sentiment.  All that was left to do after that was attach the focal panel to the card base, but I decided to round the bottom right corner first to give the card a little extra visual interest.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the CC&S Design Team has done with this sketch – they’ve made some amazing cards!  Then give it a try yourself.  You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, April 1 to link your card at the challenge site.  Thanks for stopping by today!
