CAS Colours and Sketches #112

I've had a really busy week. I've just found some photos on my camera of a card I made for a friend the other day that I meant to enter into a challenge but completely forgot about it and have now missed the deadline!! Never mind, this week's challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches is a colour challenge. This particular colour combination has definitely taken me outside my comfort zone as I'm not a reds, oranges, yellows kinda person. But I thought I would team this with some of my favourite stamps and see what happened and I'm kinda pleased with the result so that's OK!

Using my ink dusters I blended Memento inks onto a strip of linen cardstock from the left with 'Cantaloupe' and from the right with 'Tangelo'. I then stamped the image using 'Bahama Blue'. The stamp is from an IndigoBlu set called 'Wild Meadow' which I have had for ages and used many times before. I then mounted the strip onto a matching piece of cardstock and onto a card blank. The butterfly stamp is from the same IB set. This has been inked and stamped onto a spare piece of card using a combination of the orange and yellow colours, cut out, curled and mounted with foam pads. The sentiment has been stamped with 'Tangelo'.

We would love to have you join us in our colour challenge this week. Please remember that if you would like us to consider your card for one of our top three, you must stick reasonably close to the challenge colours with black, white and ivory being the only other colours allowed. I don't have any Stampin' Up ink pads but always try very carefully to match the colours with other makes of ink that I have in my stash. Your card must also feature some stamping on it and be CAS, of course!

Thanks for visiting today

  1. Love the little scenescape on your background strip. Super card and post.

  2. I want sure about these colours together but I I'll have to have a go having seen your card. The panel is so pretty.

  3. The dimensional butterfly is stunning against the botanical silhouettes background! This just might be my favorite card I've seen from you! :) Gorgeous work here, Stef!

  4. Thank you for your very kind comments ladies, they are really appreciated! Stef x
