CAS Colours & Sketches #121

A very striking sketch to challenge you this week at CAS Colours & Sketches. Will it be the triangles or the cross that jump out at you?

Such bold shapes had me heading for strong colours and an oversized sentiment. And it was the triangles that took my eye so that's where I started. After cutting them out from patterned paper I stamped an arrow on each one to showcase the sentiment I was going to use.


Then I couldn't resist adding all that crushed curry splatter in between.


I popped the sentiment up onto pads to give it even more prominance and rounded all the corners as a contrast to all those straight lines.

Supplies:
Paper: SU, Moonlight designer series stack
Stamps: SU, Point & Click, Gorgeous Grunge; Uniko Studio, Big & Bold Wish
Inks: SU, crushed curry, rich razzleberry
Punch: Xcut, corner rounder

Then I got to thinking maybe this wasn't really a CAS card - not enough white space. So I started over and couldn't have come up with a more different card.


These hearts are punched from a very sparkly piece of card, (showing up a little better in the photo below), and finished off with a teardrop shaped gem.


Supplies:
Stamp: Clearly Besotted, Bridal Bouquet
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Punch: Martha Stewart
Die: Lil'inker, stitched mats recatangles
Embellishments: Peersonal Impressions, essential jewels

So how are you going to interpret this sketch. Looking forward to seeing your creations. And as always if you need a bit more of a kickstart there's more DT inspiration to be seen here.

Thanks for your time today, I'm so pleased you visited my blog.  And keep crafting!

  2. TWO cards! Well done, you! :) I loved your hearts card just seeing it as your DT example, even without the closeup showing the sparkle and the textured cardstock of the rectangular panel. I think your "wish" card is really cool, too!
