I created this card for the latest CAS(e) This Sketch challenge (squeaking it in before the deadline).
While this card is not quite as CAS as my normal cards, I think it is enough to still qualify for the challenge.
For the confetti I stamped the group image in blue, green, and yellow. Then I went back with the individual pieces to add other colors to the group bits. That wasn’t quite enough integration, so I added marker-drawn confetti in orange and pink. I wish I hadn’t gone completely neon for the confetti, but still happy with the festive feel.
Months ago I bought a sampler pack of cardstock from MFT. Since there is only 1 piece per color I haven’t really used it, but the Cotton Candy was the perfect pink for the card base (bright but not overwhelming). Guess I’ll need to buy an actual pack of that!
So any of you who have been to my blog before knows that I am *not* a pink person. I guess I need to stop saying that! I do seem to create quite a few cards with pink – and I like them. I think I’ve decided that I have personal color favorites (found in my wardrobe and home decor) and then there is a separate category of colors for crafting. Does anyone else find they enjoy creating using colors that aren’t their “norm”?
Thanks for taking a peek!
