CAS Colours and Sketches #387

It's time once again for another challenge over at the CAS Colours and Sketches blog.  This week we have new sketch for you to try.

I decided to create a portrait style card rather than the landscape one shown in the sketch.  

I had a new background stamp that I was itching to use.  I stamped it onto both kraft and red card stock in ink colors just slightly darker than the card stock itself.  I then stamped, colored (COPICS) and fussy cut out five tacos to serve as my focal image.  I added some skinny strips of card stock to define the border between the two crackle backgrounds and added a stamped greeting to a piece of card stock I colored yellow to match the taco shells.  

This would have been a fairly CAS card had I not gone for the crackling but I really do think it adds to the overall theme of the card.  I'll probably be sending this one out to my taco loving grandson.

This is a simple sketch with so many possibilities.  I hope to see your cards in our gallery!

Stay safe and healthy my friends!
