I have found this week's colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches quite tricky principally because I don't have any ink pads in the right shades of pink or yellow for the card I wanted to make. But I like a challenge so have gone ahead with it anyway and made a few substitutions.
I have made this card for a close colleague at work, Angela, who is moving house in a few weeks time. The stamp set is a new one for me, bought in the January sale at Clearly Besotted. I tried at first to stamp the fence and mask it off to place the tree behind but this attempt ended up in the bin! The pink ink pad is not quite dark enough to match SU's Strawberry Slush, but is the closest I have and I have tried to draw the pink out by using a piece of pink cardstock as a mat. I have no yellow ink pad that matches, even remotely, so have drawn a spring sun using a coloured pencil.
Stamp Set: Home Sweet Home (Clearly Besotted)
Ink Pads: Bamboo (Versacolor); Whisper Pink (Whisper)
Coloured Pencil: No 3 (Derwent No19)
Snippets: Pink cardstock; Flower ribbon
Have you found this week's colour trio any easier?
