CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #257

Fun!  Fun!  Fun!  It's the fifth Tuesday of the month so we have a double challenge for you at CAS Colours & Sketches.  It's where we combine colors and a sketch.  Be sure to visit the blog to see the Design Team's wonderful inspiration.

As you can see I've made the one layer bigger than in the sketch.  It was kind of unintentional but I stayed with it as I've been ill for the past several days and my poor brain was not processing anything well.  I did mange to use the right colors for the inks I used but I think the flowers are a bit different than the actual Coastal Cabana color.  Sigh...

It was fun to bring out the Clarity Brushes again as I've not used them in a while.  I layered the Coastal Cabana, Peekaboo Peach (in place of the Apricot Appeal) and Certainly Celery (I had the Stampin' Write Marker) inks to make my background.  I embossed that with the Splatter Embossing Folder from Taylored Expressions.  The sentiment was stamped using Coastal Cabana.  The flowers were punched using the Petite Petals Punch.  I added a pearl to the center of each flower.


For all the challenge details and to share your project, visit the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge by clicking the image below.  We'd love to have you join us.  You have until Monday, February 5th at 5:00 p.m. Central Time to link up your project.


Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,

Marsha
