CAS Colours & Sketches #272 - Colour Challenge

It's a colour challenge week on the CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge Blog.  Our colours are Pacific Point, So Saffron, and Pear Pizzaz.  I'm on a roll with coloring on colored cardstock lately.  I started using my small collection of Prismacolor pencils, but didn't have the right blue for Pacific Point. I went to my granddaughters' craft desk and grabbed the 50 colored pencils I purchased from Costco last year and scored! They actually worked well for most of this image!

I can't ever remember inking this stamp up and it's old enough that Stampendous doesn't even list it anymore! (It's called Jar Bouquet.)  I thought it would be perfect to use as a Mother's Day card for my mom for our CC&S color challenge.  Love how those little blue flowers look!

Take a peek at the DT makes HERE and then try your hand at this week's colours!  Hope to see you in the gallery.

  7. Such a beautiful card with such a vintage feel to it - I love that jar stamp and your colouring is fab - just goes to show the art of the colouring is in the artist not necessarily the expensive tools.
