CAS Colours & Sketches - #207

This week at CAS Colours & Sketches there's a very interesting and quirky sketch for you to get your crafting teeth into.

Mmm quite challenging! Well it's good to push your creativity from time to time. Here's what I came up with:

I couldn't get the idea of that wavy strip being a landscape hill out of my mind and started my card by handcutting and then embossing a card strip. I placed it down on my card background and then spent some time looking and wondering where to go next.

Well it turned out to be a sunrise at the top and a butterfly and sentiment at the bottom. I kept my colour scheme very simple, just adding a matching coloured trio of enamel dots round the sentiment.

Stamps: SU, Kinda Eclectic
Inks: SU, daffodil delight, pumpkin pie, real red
Punch: Martha Stewart, butterfly
Embossing: Cuttlebug, swiss dots
Embellishments: Simple Stories, So Rad enamel dots

This sketch has got me really excited as I know you're all going to have amazing ideas about how to use it. And so did my CC&S teammies - go check them out here.

Huge thanks for visiting my blog today, I really appreciate your time.  And keep crafting!

  1. I love the sun peaking out . It really gives a great effect.

  2. Have to admit that it challenged me too!! Love the sun - did you rock and roll to get the different coloured tips?

  3. Awesome idea Jane and very inspiring. I'd not thought about adding texture and the landscape/sunrise really pairs well with the sketch. CAS perfection too. Hugs Bev x

  4. What a lovely sentiment, Jane. Love the fun way you have the sun peeking from behind the embossed panel!

  5. Fabulous sunrise! I love the added interest with the embossed strip - definitely adds to the overall effect x

  6. Sweet card! Love how you created a landscape scene that isn't overwhelming with just a few pops of color!

  7. I love the added interest of the embossing and that bright and happy sun against the white really makes it pop!
