Hi there. Boy – when the mojo comes back…..it comes back, doesn’t it? I think my mojo is knocking on my head repeatedly as I’ve got so many ideas in there…….it’s just finding the time to do it!
Before I go to create my card for my Guest Star Stamper for the Color Throwdown Challenge beginning on the 12th September, I wanted to post the cards I made this morning:
I took the colours from the current CAS Colours and Sketches, and made these two variations.
I do like a little inks smooshing, so I took the Night of Navy and my version of Gorgeous Grape – I don’t have that colour so used a Zig instead – and smooshed two panels. I die cut them using a Catherine Pooler die, which is a favourite of mine.
After I had stamped and heat embossed the flowers and leaves, I used the three colours to water-colour them, but left the prickly leaf without colour.
I had a play with the layout and that’s where the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch came in.
I couldn’t decide which card I preferred so I am showing them both – does anyone have a preference?
The sentiment is from a Concord and 9th stamp set.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
CAS Colours and Sketches – Night Of Navy, Crushed Curry, Gorgeous Grape
Watercooler Challenges – feminine anything goes
CAS(E) This Sketch – sketch
CAS On Sunday – CAS Flowers
