While my pizza is baking, I have time for a short post to share the card I made for the current CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge. I found I had all the colors, in one form or another, that I needed for the challenge without having to find a close match. Yes, I was surprised.
The card base is Shimmery White. I found a piece of Peach Parfait cardstock and embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. The ribbon I added is actually the 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon that I used my Dusty Durango Stampin' Write Marker to add color. I think it looks really well with that Peach Parfait. Don't you?
I stamped an image from the Fabulous Flora stamp set in Basic Black Archival ink onto a piece of Shimmery White and watercolored it using a Sage Shadow Watercolor Wonder Crayon. Then, I cut it out using one of the ovals from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black Archival and is also from the Fabulous Flora stamp set.
When I stamped the sentiment, it left a bit of a mark where you see the line of Pearl Basic Jewels. It was one way to cover up the mistake and not have to start the card over. I think it worked rather well. I also added a pearl to the leaves in the image to finish out the design.
The colors and sketch I used are from the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge. For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
