CAS Colours and Sketches #437


The CAS Colours and Sketches team are back on the blog this week with a new challenge.  This week we'd like for you to incorporate this wonderful sketch by Jenny into a slimline card.  

I'm still having fun with my graphic stamps so I incorporated them into something a bit different.

My card is a mini slimline which for me is a final size of 6.25" x 3.5".  I started off by stamping the rectangular blocks to create the background.  Over top I added a gold embossed line of squiggles.  I Copic colored my whale and added some gold embossing and white gel pen to him for a bit of detail.  I adhered my panel to a blue card base, adhered the whale to the left side and finished it off by adding in the stamped sentiment and crisscrosses.

I invite you to visit the blog and hope to see your card in our gallery!

  1. Oh Julie this is such a fun card! I love the colour blocking and mark making:)

  2. Jules this is a really fun card and I'm paying particular attention to the way you used the rectangles and waves for blocks of pattern/colour; I never know how to use these kinds of stamps so I'm definitely making notes!

  3. This is a whale-of-a-fun card, Jules! [you knew someone was going to say it, right?]

  4. Fun colours and terrific design! You are rocking the graphic stamps - you may need to give a masterclass!
