CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 260

Wow the month is slipping by and today is the third Tuesday of the month. This means it's time for a colour challenge and this is what Patricia has in store for us.

Admittedly this is not a colour combination that I would have thought of, but once I started playing with the inks and the Eclectic Expressions stamp set ( a new Sale-A-Bration stamp set) I had a few cards to choose from.

In fact, I had so many cards to share that I couldn't make up my mind so I had my daughter, Jenny, choose the one she liked the most.

I had a little help making this card because I used my new Stamparatus (available 1 June unless you were able to reverse one for early release) to make sure that all the circles and then the "bar codes" lined up. Using the tool made it quick and simple because all I had to do was clean the stamp before inking the next colour, and then move the plate to it's next position along the hinge.

Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you. Also, don't forget to pop over to the CAS Colours & Sketches Blog to see what the other members of the design team have been up to.

Happy stamping.
