CAS Colours & Sketches #187


It's a new month over at CAS Colours & Sketches with LOTS of fun challenges in store. As it is the summer months we are taking it in turns to be a hostess for the week. This week our hostess is the lovely Louise.

Louise has come up with this lovely colour combo HERE and seen below for you to try...

This one had me stumped for a little while, I don't know if it was my creativity or the colours. Anyway, I decided to break out some Christmas themed stamps to try and get me in the mood for the upcoming season. Quite hard after a trip to the seaside and full on sunshine this week ;)

This is what I came up with...

I only have the new SU! In Colours in card stock, so I needed a way to incorporate at least one of the colours that way! I matched Flirty Flamingo as closely as possible to Regal Rose ink to stamp the snowflakes from Stunning Snowflakes.

The layout of my card is from the new Freshly Made Sketches challenge seen HERE and below...

Here is a little close up of the sparkle of the die cut snowflake...

Ok, that's all from me for now, I hope I have inspired you to give these colours a go and join in on the challenge this week. Be sure to stop on over HERE and check out what the rest of the CAS Colours & Sketches DT have done using the colours and I hope to see you in the gallery.

Thanks for stopping by today.
