CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge No. 185

I've been busy with my preparation for my September classes, the first one is titled Blue is The Colour, and involves lots of Night of Navy and a little bit of Pool Party too.

Despite being busy with this, it didn't stop me checking out some of the current challenges and lo and behold, the current CAS Colours & Sketches challenge involves the colour blue. This was honestly not planned.

It therefore seemed apt that I should make a card for the challenge. This is what I came up with using the three colours asked for, and the Floral Phrases stamp set.

I used Stampin' Write Markers in each of the three colours, mainly because I wanted to shorten the length of each the image each time. The left-hand colour is Marina Mist and all the flowers and stems were inked and then stamped.The last two flowers and stems were not inked with the Dapper Denim and the last four flowers and stems were not inked with the Night of Navy.

I used a different image from the same stamp set for the inside of the card - giving it a more formal appearance.

I hope you enjoy the card and as always, please feel free to leave a comment.

  1. Wonderful card - love the way you used the border images. Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S!

  2. The floral stripes are very pretty. Thanks for sharing your card with us at CC&S!

  3. What a happy coincidence Fiona! I really love the delicacy of that stamp - loved that you featured it on the card. Mine is so far uninked, thanks for the push to ink it up. Thanks for joining us at CAS Colours & Sketches again this week. Liz x
