It is time for Timeless Tuesday challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches. Check out the latest challenge:
This special challenge involves some retired colors AND a past sketch (you have to use both). Here is my take:
Double challenges are so challenging for me! I usually spend all my time coming up with ideas for either the colors or the sketch. It takes quite a bit of brain power to do something with both. And even then it usually involves something geometric or abstract – as this card is.
Thankfully I have those old colors in marker form as well as ink – so I used those to color my image. Using the MISTI, I was able to stamp my image multiple times ensuring complete ink coverage.
My white panel started out as wide as a card base. After stamping my image, I used a circle die to make an impression around the image. The impression also helped when cutting around the image.
Since the card is fairly flat, I added a button to the image center for interest.
The card above is actually iteration 2. Originally, my white panel went from the top to bottom:
I was actually putting this blog post together with the original version when I realized the sketch showed space at the top and bottom – and after seeing the card on screen, I wish I had done that. So I peeled off the layer, trimmed it up and took a new photo.
I actually like both cards. I was fairly surprised that I liked the trimmed panel as much as I do! What do you think?
I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
Thanks for stopping by!
