CAS Colours and Sketches #373

It's the first Tuesday in June (WHAT???) and we have a new color combo for you over at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge blog.  The colors were chosen by Samantha and I think I'm in love.  

I used one large floral stamp and a three colored pencils to create my focal image.

As you can see, I used a very light touch with my pencils.  I had one blue, one green and one white in a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos.  Here's a closer look-see.  

I stamped the outline and sentiment in black pigment ink, colored in the image, added the panel to a card front made with Neenah Desert Storm 110 lb card stock and then finished it off with a  few clear droplets as accents. 

While I had the stamp out I decided to try a similar card front on kraft card stock.  The blue pencil wasn't showing up anywhere near the Pool Party color so I scrapped the color challenge theme and went with some darker accents in a different shade of blue pencil.   We'll just call it this one a Bonus Card.  :-)

Neenah cardstock in 110 lb Solar White and 110 lb Desert Storm
HoneyBee Stamps - clear droplets

I'm curious.  Colors aside, which card do you prefer?  The white panel or the kraft panel?  I honestly can't choose.  I love them both.  (Am I allowed to say that?  *blush*)

I hope to see your card in our gallery this week!

Stay safe and healthy my friends!  

Thank you for visiting my little crevice of the crafty blogosphere.  Your time, comments and friendship are much appreciated.  

Happy Crafting!



  1. I'm in love, too … with the trio of colors, AND your duo of cards, Julie! Beautiful pencil work, my friend!

  2. Two beautiful cards! Since we're both rebels anyway, I may just like the second one a teeny bit more. ;)

  3. I always love seeing people use the same stamp different ways - it's interesting and also appeals to my thriftier side! I love the two looks you've achieved here - they are beautiful!
