Medallion Hello

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


And here is my take:

Hello | by karen @ carefree creations

Crushed Curry and Island Indigo are some of my favorite colors – and together, oh my, they are awesome! I knew right away I wanted a middle east flair to the card.

For the sentiment, doing just a die-cut wasn’t bold enough – it didn’t stand out, so instead I used the negative and backed it with vellum (and lots of dimensional adhesive).

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. A beautiful CAS creation and loving the stamped design it suits the colours and the die cut sentiment is a wonderful feature. Hugs Bev x

  2. Oooh love it! Such precision stamping of the two colours on your medallion strip – bet that took some doing! Love that negative die sentiment too.

  3. Karen – this is beautiful. I love how you used the negative of the die-cut – it’s so much more dramatic than if you’d used the die cut itself. Liz x
