CC&S #309 – You Make Life Zingy

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

And here is my take:

You Make Life Zingy | by karen h @ carefree creations

Since I did yellow flowers a couple weeks ago, I wanted to do something different. I decided lemons. I only have this one from PaperSmooches. It comes with a smiley face (with pucker lips), but since red/pink wasn’t a color in the challenge, I decided to leave the face off.

I used 2 yellow Copic markers and tried not to blend them too much to show the different yellows from the color scheme.

Sadly I didn’t have a sentiment that worked, so I had to make my own. The first bit is a phrase from another set (yay – it was already in that order – no fussy stamping!!), the “zingy” is made with an alphabet set. The alphabet set has each letter with a couple different fonts. In putting it together, I decided to use the ZIGY in the same simple font and the N with the fancy font – I think it turned out great!

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!
