It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #74 – colors.

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #74

And here is my take:

by karen @ carefree creations - Time Together

This is a card that took a couple tries, and some serendipity, to get right – but I’m glad I kept at it as I’m quite happy with the final outcome.

The clock face is stamped-off (second generation) of Midnight Muse ink (it is too dark as a first gen – especially next to the grey…just not enough contrast).

The flowers are done with Primrose Petals and (second-gen) Midnight Muse.

The sentiment – part from the Hands of Time set and part from the Round & Round set – is all stamped with Basic Grey. Originally I stamped the anniversary line centered under the other sentiment, but that didn’t feel right. So on my second attempt, I lined them all up right-justified. Much better.

When I die cut the clock hands, I had two pieces of grey cardstock together – but didn’t know that. Since it didn’t cut well, I put it through the machine again. That resulted in a perfect hand (where the intricate details popped right out) and a hand that the details stayed in. The more solid hand was definitely a better choice (the open one just faded into the background).

I did shave 1/8″ off the side of the card.
