Because August has five Tuesday we have a special treat for you over at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge blog. It's what we call a Double Challenge.
In a double challenge you must use only the color trio
(plus neutrals) as well as incorporate the sketch into your design.
I didn't want to go with a traditional trio of shapes so I used a bit of artistic license with the sketch.
My trio consists of two palms trees and a cute little penguin. It works, don't you think?
I began by stamping my trees in yellow. I stamped, fussy cut and Copic colored in the cute little seaside penguin using the challenge colors along with blacks and greys. The sentiment was stamped with a crisp black pigment ink. To create a matching border I rimmed the white panel with the same Copic marker I used on the penguin. I positioned my penguin in front of the trees, popping him up with some foam tape. I also used foam tape to adhere the panel to a white card base and added in some clear yellow droplets as accents.
I invite you to visit our blog and hope to see your card in our gallery!
