CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #268 – Colours

Hello there!

It’s the third Tuesday of April, we are having a new color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.

Our monthly hostess, Karen, has come up a beautiful color combination to inspire us. (tap the figure below for the details at CC&S)

When I was considering which stamp set I should pick for these colours, raindrops were starting to patter. I was inspired by the sound of dripping…

Here is a closer look at the texture…

Here is how I’ve used the color combo…

  1. Create an A2 card base.
  2. Stencil the raindrops with Nuvo Glimmer paste on the card base.
  3. Stamp the sentiment on card base.
  4. Stamp, color and die cut the images.
  5. Layer the images and black & white stripe with foam tape and double sided tape on A2 card base.

Thank you for spending some time with me.

I hope you can head on over to the CC&S blog to enter the challenge and to see more inspiration from the awesome Design Team.

Hello there!

I’ve considered what images I should used for the colors for a few days, but still have no ideas. I asked for some thoughts from my hubby, then he pointed to the striped bed sheet with these colors. I think I have an idea from my hubby and Jennifer Mcquire.

Here is how I’ve used the color combo…

  1. Create an A2 card base and an A2 size paper with double sided tape.
  2. Trim the colored paper to stripes with different width.
  3. Adhere the colored stripes to the A2 size paper and trim it to a rectangle.
  4. Die cut HELLO from the striped rectangle and white card stock.
  5. Adhere HELLO from white card stock to the striped rectangle and add some clear droplets.
  6. Layer the striped rectangle with foam tape on A2 card base.

Thank you for spending some time with me.
