I decided to go very CAS with this pastel shades. I started with a Kraft card stock base and stamped it with Versamark and Etched Flower Background. I love how Versamark looks on Kraft—just enough to show up but remains subtle for a nice backdrop. Then I cut the “hello” from Hello There Die-namics from Peach Bellini card stock, Sno Cone card stock, and In the Buff card stock and adhered them to the card front.

I stamped the rest of the sentiment from Label Maker Sentiments on Sweet Tooth card stock with Black Licorice dye ink and trimmed it close before popping it up on foam mounting tape. To finish off, I added enamel dots in the challenge colors.

And that’s it! CAS and easy peasy! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!

So, yeah, I might have employed a little creative license regarding this sketch :) I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then added a piece of Ranger Watercolor Paper on which I did a watercolor wash using Peerless Watercolors. I adhered it directly to my card base then build my scene. I used Fresh Squeezed Chevron Paper Pack and Grassy edges Die-namics for the bottom border, along with Farm Fence Die-namics cut from Kraft card stock.

The five circle elements were interpreted very loosely ;-) For them I used the rooster and chicken from Farm-tastic and Farm-tastic Die-namics, stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink, cut from Ranger Watercolor Paper and colored with a small waterbrush and Peerless Watercolors. The black specks on the chicks were done with a fine point black marker. I used Radiant Sun Die-namics, cut from Sunshine card stock for the sun and Sweet Tooth card stock cut with Puffy Clouds Die-namics for the could. The sentiment is from the set and was stamped with Black Licorice hybrid ink.

And there you have my take on this week’s
MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!

Because You’re the Best–CTD #394

CTD394_2016may25

Hi, everyone! Welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week’s hostess is our newest team member, Amy Rohl and she has chosed a very sweet inspiration piece from white to draw her colors.

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then, on some Ranger Watercolor Paper, I stamped Lined Chevron Background with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder before popping it up on foam mounting tape on the base.

Next I added a strip of Ripe Raspberry card stock stamped with Ripe Raspberry dye ink and Lace Background, adhered to the card front on top of some rolled up silver thread. Next is some Gravel Gray card stock stamped with Versamark and a sentiment from Because You, then heat embossed with white detail embossing powder before being popped up on foam. The die from Because You was cut from Blueberry card stock three times, adhered together for strength, and also popped up on foam. I finished off with some silver glitter enamel dots.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the
Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown.
