It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:
And here is my take:
Whoa boy, did this card take some time! I knew right away that, with these colors, I wanted to do a winter snowflake card. I spent hours selecting and arranging images to use. There were so many ways to lay it out and they all gave a different feel. I wanted my card to provide a feeling of movement and hope. To that end, I decided not to do anything too geometric/lined-up. I tried to do a watercolor thing, but that didn’t work and the colors weren’t quite right.
I finally decided to do a bit of sponging with the blue and stamp the snowflakes in a triangle with the sentiment as little strips over the flakes.
Originally I didn’t have any border on the main white panel, so I added a bit of wonky stitching with a die, but it didn’t look quite right (the paper was already cut down and I didn’t want to make smaller and not all the wonk fit), so I die cut again but with a straight stitch die.
The card needed one more touch – sparkle. I embossed the snowflakes with a glitter powder. I think my photo shows that the snowflakes are purple with a sparkly layer.
I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
Thanks for stopping by!
