CAS Colours and Sketches #378

The new color challenge is up at the CC&S blog and I am in love with the selection!  Isn't this trio so pretty?

For our color challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colors. You may also use neutral colors;  however, the challenge colors should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up color names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colors as closely as possible.  

I went through my collection of alcohol markers in search of some that match closely to those above.  While Copic brand markers are my go to, I thankfully have many sets from various manufacturers so I was able to find just the right colors.  

I was thoughtfully gifted this stamp and die set from a dear friend and had to put it to use right away.  It was perfect for a color challenge but I particularly love these bold colors.  This card was fairly straight forward to create.  I colored the image using blue for the flowers, green for the leaves and purple for the berries.  I die cut three squares of white card stock and colored them in with one of each color.  I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment onto the green square and adhered them all to the inside of the stamped image.  I adhered the entire panel onto a card base made from 110 lb Neenah Solar White card stock and sprinkled a few white clay hearts around to finish it up.

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!
