Hi everyone! It's my second week as a CAS Colours & Sketches guest designer, and the challenge this week is a lovely sketch!
I am slowly incorporating some of the new SU colors into my cards, and today I am featuring Highland Heather and Gray Granite, so here we go:
I used Highland Heather to stamp the florals and background from Touches of Texture, then added some leafy images from Rooted in Nature in Gray Granite, stamped off. Gray Granite is a very intense color, which surprised me, but stamping off creates a nice little shadow effect that doesn't overpower! I stamped and embossed a sentiment from Rooted in Nature in white on a piece of Gray Granite cardstock and fussy-cut it out to layer over a banner of Silver Foil (hard to see), some Polka-dotted ribbon and a coil of Silver Thread:
It all went on a card base of Highland Heather to finish it off. I usually shy away from purples, but this one is very pretty and in small doses, like on a clean-and-simple card, it's just delightful!
I hope you will play along with the CAS Colours & Sketches sketch challenge this week....remember to keep it CAS! And be sure to check out the blog to see what the others created as well!
I was mowing the other day and stopped the mower for a moment, when I saw some movement in the grass at my feet:
Isn't this the tiniest little thing you've ever seen? I am pretty sure it is a toad, but I can't find the proper name of it, and it was so small, I kept picking up pieces of grass along with it! I took a couple pix and then put it back so it could hop away to its little habitat in the yard!
Isn't God's creation wonderful! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
