CAS Colours & Sketches #155

Today sees the first challenge for 2016 at CAS Colours & Sketches. And we're welcoming our new  Design Team members:  Beverley, Caro, Karen, and Liz!

It's the first Thursday of the month, which means we have a colour challenge.  What will you create with these cool wintry colours?

I needed a get well card and used the colours as a backdrop for a silhouette stamp. The shadow is made by stamping for a second time without re-inking the stamp.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Simple Silhouettes, Geometric Style
Inks: SU, marina mist, pool party, smoky slate; Memento, tuxedo black
Die: Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles

Have you got your New Year creativity going yet? Why not give these colours a try? Pop on over to CAS Colours & Sketches to check out all the DT designs and our fabulous Guest Designer for January - Maaike.

Thanks for visiting today. And keep crafting!
