CC&S #356 – Hello

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

And here is my take:

Hello | by karen h @ carefree creations

I know, it is February, and these colors just scream Valentine’s but, honestly, I did a couple cards and I’m done. Instead I did flowers 🙂

I am *in love* with how dark the sentiment turned out. I think this is the first time I really felt like the Brilliance Graphite lived up to its hype! I mean, it has always been my darkest black, but this feels like staring into the void and it makes me ridiculously happy!

I did the stamping on a separate layer because I had when my cards warp from embossing. The panel is adhered right to the card base – no popping.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is lovely. And I get it. I really don’t send/give Valentine’s cards so a couple are plenty. I’ve never tried Brilliance Graphite Black. Going to look in to that one.

  2. I’m getting a bit hearted out too Karen and love your fresh delicate flowers. I love how excited you are about the sentiment – we are sisters under the skin!!! Vicky x

  3. Beautiful card Karen! These colors do look lovely as flowers – no hearts! ;). You’ve used one of my favorite sets from Stampin’ Up! I may have to pull it out again.
