Gettin Sketchy

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #48 sketch.

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #48

I’ll admit, when I first saw this sketch, I thought it would be hard; but when I sat down to craft I very quickly had quite a few ideas. I’m sharing two of them today.

This is the first idea that came to mind. I bought this protractor stamp awhile ago because my daughter is a math geek and I thought I might be able to make some cards for her (and her teacher).

I don’t know if it is obvious, but the arrow is pointing 90° in the protractor – a right angle…hence the pun. My daughter “got it” so that is all that really matters :) Of course I had to tease her that she’d have to give the card to me and not the other way ’round!

The sentiment was done with a font and a word processing program.

My next card uses a new set I recently acquired.

I think this was an impulse buy (mostly because the Lil Inker DT is so convincing), but I love this witch!

I have a hard time using colors differently than I see in nature. I truly wanted to use purple as the card base because at least it was close to a black night sky. When I was messing with colors the orange looked too good – and everything popped with it. So while I’ve never seen an orange night sky (not counting thin strips of sky at sunset), I went with it…and I’m glad I did!

I still have a couple ideas floating around my head for this sketch – so you’ll probably see it again soon!
