It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:
And here is my take:
This is such a versatile sketch, I wasn’t sure which direction I wanted to go, so I did what I normally do – selected a handful of sets that I thought would work and then asked my kid to pick one. They love llama’s so I wasn’t surprised they picked this set.
Making the blanket background was pretty fun. I started by stamping a wide stripe in 6 pale, rainbow colors (letting the blue take 1 1/2 spaces). Then I went back with various shades and adding black lines too. To add the fringe, I put a strip of double-sided tape down, looped some black thread, secured it with tape over top, and then trimmed the ends. Here’s a photo:
The blanket is so colorful that I left the llama bright white to stand out.
I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
Thanks for stopping by!
