It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge -> #22 – sketch.
And here is my take:
Of course it had to have a rainbow ;)
I was a little stumped at first with this sketch, but I stretched my brain and decided that chevrons would make a great substitute for the tag/pennant areas on the sketch. Since the right-side one starts lower than the left in the sketch, I decided to make my chevrons go in the opposite direction and stop just above the sentiment frame.
And, just in case you think I have an impossibly good eye, I’ll show you how I cheated!
Usually I figure stuff out as I go – so normally I would have stamped the background and then chosen my sentiment frame. But knowing I had limited space to get all my rainbow in, I decided I needed to cheat.
I picked out my sentiment frame immediately and then partially inked it (i.e., I used a marker and inked just the “inside” of the frame – so it wouldn’t show underneath when I was done) and stamped it first. Then I was able to mask my panel to stamp the chevrons (no way was I going to attempt a one layer with this – and good thing as it took a couple tries) and still see where the frame would be.
As you can see, I did leave a bit of a gap in my stamping to ensure that all my colors showed.
I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
Thanks for stopping by!
