CAS Colours & Sketches #288 - Colours

Hello September!

A new month means a new hostess over at CAS Colours & Sketches and this month Samantha is our hostess. Summer is almost over and there is a hint of Autumn in the air already here in the UK, the days are slightly cooler and the sun is going down earlier and we start to think of the next holiday, Halloween! Which I think inspired Samantha's colour choices HERE this week...

I've never been a huge fan of Halloween and I don't make a big fuss about it or making cards to celebrate, so I had to sit and think of how to use them for a different occasion. This is what I came up with...

It has been ages since I used Background Builders: Squared and when I saw the current sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch! seen HERE and below, I thought the colours and the sketch would work great with the stripe stamp. I used my MISTI tool to stamp the stripes to get them as evenly spaced as I could. 

I used a trio of Altenew colours that best matched the ones in the CC&S graphic and the sentiment is from Simply Said Birthday & die cut using a little rectangle die.

That's all from me today, I hope thatI have inspired you to join in on the challenge?! If you need a little more inspiration, pop on over HERE to see what the CC&S Design Team have created.

Thanks for stopping by!
