CAS Colours & Sketches #151

Some beautiful chilly Winter colours for this week's CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. How will you use them?

Well I admit the metallic silver had me stumped for a while as I don't have any metallic inkpads and only gold embossing powder. So I decided to use some sparkly silver holographic card for this element of the challenge.

My starting point for this card was a fellow teammie at Uniko - Sarah G - with her card here. I used the same stamp set as her, but changed it up by using a trio of Christmas baubles - as you know I'm a bit of a fan of threes!

My baubles are all stamped off onto scrap paper before stamping onto my card. I love how this gives a more subtle, shady effect. I really liked the angle of Sarah's sentiment banner and so I added it to both ends of my banner.

Stamps: Uniko, Background Builders Round In Circles, Balloon Bash, Simply Said Christmas
Inks: SU, lost lagoon, wateremlon wonder; Memento, tuxedo black
Card: Silver holographic card from my stash
Embellishments: Papermania adhesive stones  

It's so good to get inspiration from other crafters and I know you'll love what the rest of the CAS Colours & Sketches DT have made to get you thinking. Go check it out!

Thanks for looking at my blog today, I love that you did! And keep crafting!

  1. Love this design Jane & wonderful use of the colours. I'm a big fan of 'threes' it's my favourite & lucky number! Wonderful showcase of the circles set too. Hugs Bev x

  2. The ornaments look great in the challenge colors! And yes - groupings of an odd number of items often do look better than an even number. Three is a good choice! :)

  3. This is so pretty, love how you have used the colours and the silver holographic card complements the baubles so well. Who says you need ink to incopotprate a colour into a design? Lots of white space too, super DT card, thank you
