Cas Colours & Sketches Challenge #165

Cas Colours & Sketches Challenge #165

This week a colour challenge: Night of navy, watermelon wonder, marina mist.
I used Distress inks: Chipped sapphire, broken china and abandoned coral to match the Stampin' Up ones.Maybe faded jeans would have been better as chipped sapphire is a bit more purple-ish.oh well

I made a panel with a dotted edge with my Big shot and a Marianne design die, then die cut the painted happy birthday from Simon Says Stamp out of this panel and I traced  it onto the cardbase so I would know where to ink.
For the inking I used the mini blending tool from Tim Holtz and applied the three colours in no particular order. I mounted the panel with foamtape and applied it to the cardbase.
 At first I thought marina scene and came up with almost the same idea as Stef's card, so walked away from that, then thought instead of a sailboat I can use an anchor die, I have the perfect sentiment stamp for it was well...so whilst flicking through my dies I came across the painted happy birthday and it clicked in my head.
Scenes and colours are always tricky for me ;-)

  6. I do that sometimes, start making one card and end up making something completely different! At least that's better than having no ideas at all! Thanks for joining us once again at CC&S. Stef x
