It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:
And here is my take:
Double challenges are always very hard for me. I had some ideas for this combo, but my stamps didn’t want to cooperate (they didn’t fit the sketch like I thought they might). I was pleasantly surprised when this pocket image fit so nicely (I thought it would be too small).
The sun image is empty in the middle – and the set did not include a circle stamp to fill it in. I really needed the sun to have more weight on the card, so I pulled out another set which included a polka dot circle that fit quite nicely. I thought the polka dots went well with the pattern paper I had already picked out. It was hard to line up the inner circle inside the already stamped sun, but thankfully the bad spacing is hidden by the pocket!
Speaking of the pocket, that is all Pacific Point ink – I did a second-generation impression for the solid pocket and then over-stamped, full strength, with the stitch lines. I think the set has a die for the pocket, but I forgot that when I stamped it, so I had to cut it out by hand (thankfully, since it is all straight lines, it wasn’t fussy).
I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
Thanks for stopping by!
