CAS Colours & Sketches #219

A new colour challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches this week and I think they're a bit of different combo.


What do you think? They're really subtle, but very usuable and awesome.

I decided to make more of a unisex type of card and the wonderful Explosion duo from Uniko. I stamped the background halftone splats in the taupe and green and then hand cut the mint splat and raised it onto pads to sit above.

A couple of movement lines and the word awesome and my card was rady to go in the post.

Stamps: Uniko, Explosion, Explosion Additions
Inks: SU, old olive, mint macaron, tip top taupe

Do go check out how the rest of the CC&S DT have used these colours - here. You'll be impressed.

Thanks for looking today, your company has been very welcome.  And keep crafting!

  1. LOVE this Jane and not just because you have used Uniko ;) The colours and layering of the stamped halftone explosion is FAB and the whole design is just CAS perfection. Hugs Bev x

  2. This is a super card, love the feel of dimension

  3. This is a great boy card if I ever saw one.

  4. I love all that dimension the image really looks like it is jumping out at you!

  5. Fabulous use of the colours to make a mens card and great feel of dimension and texture.

  6. Your card is Awesome! ;) Really, it is terrific in its CAS-ness. You called it unisex, but I think it would be perfect for the often hard-to-please teenage boy years.

  7. Love the fact that you stamped the background explosion in two colours. It's a great effect and really adds to the card. x

  8. Such a clever card Jane and I love the two colour background, so effective behind your explosion.

  9. Fun card. I like the way you did the half tone background.
