CAS Colours and Sketches #426 - A Double Challenge


The past several weeks have been a whirlwind of activity in my house as well as all across the state of Florida.  Life has definitely been good, so much so that I think this is Tuesday.  Yes?  

Given that June blessed us with five Tuesdays we have a Double Challenge up at the CC&S blog.  To play along you will need to not only use our selected color trio but also incorporate the three colors into this week's sketch.  

Feel free to rotate/flip the sketch but only the colors in the palette, 
along with neutrals, may be used on your card.

I guess I'm having a phone obsession lately because here we go with yet another retro phone card.  I think they just make a fun way to say hello.  

I pulled out three shades of cardstocks which closely matched our color trio to die cut the phone. I assembled the bits and pieces in an pattern that I liked and adhered them together.  I added a bit of texture to the background using an embossing folder.  To keep my card from getting overly busy I created the tag portion from vellum, stamping and heat embossing the sentiment in black pigment ink and clear powder.  I adhered it all to a heavy weight black card base, popping up the phone's receiver with some thin foam tape.

  4. I'm definitely not tiring of these fabulous retro telephones Julie and this one is so zingy - I love it! The vellum banner piece is a neat trick too.
