Karen has a fun combination of colors for us this week using Watermelon Wonder, Island Indigo, and Flirty Flamingo.
For those of you who are blog regulars, you know I am working to develop my CAS eye through this opportunity to be on the CC&S DT. Well, I thought I'd share a little bit f my journey with you. I created a number of cards for this challenge - looking for that "just right" CAS feel. I thought I had settled on the one with the punched border (below), but as I was running through the card in my mind, I felt it was a little busy to be CAS. I went down to my craft room the next morning and used one of my discarded panels to create the card on the right. It has a lot more white space and fewer layers. The bow is purposefully angled to compliment the diagonal sentiment. I like them both - but knew I was on the right track with the second card because it seemed a little plain to my eye!
I dug out a very old chalkboard-looking stamp set from Our Daily Bread and pulled out my Mini-Misti to stamp a solid background and used three Copics to color the words, IRL, the white letters are coated with Wink of Stella and have shimmer.
Pop over and check out the rest of the DT's inspiration on the CAS Colours and Sketch Challenge Blog. Hope to see your creations in the gallery!
