Hi there!  It’s a fifth Thursday of the month, and that means we have a double challenge for you at CAS – Colours and Sketches!  This week we’re asking our challenge participants to use the provided colors and sketch to create a clean and simple styled card.

I have to admit it took me a while to figure out what to do to combine the required colors with the sketch.  I was browsing through some of my older stamp sets, trying to get ideas for a different project, when I came across this set of monster images.  And the one monster image clicked in my head as being doable for this challenge.  I even was able to separate a two-line sentiment and use it for each of the narrow horizontal panels by using markers to ink up each line of the sentiment.  I’ve stretched the sketch into a rectangle.  It wasn’t until I started assembling the card that I realized didn’t center the monster vertically on the panel very well, but at that point I wasn’t going to do it over.  It’ll be all right.



Just in case you can’t read the sentiment, the top panel says “Your age doesn’t scare me.”  The bottom says “Well, maybe a little.”  This humorous sentiment lets the card work for Kathy’s Hope You Can Cling To challenge, “Laughter is the Best Medicine”.

What will you make for the double challenge?  Be sure to visit the CAS – Colours and Sketches site to see what the rest of the design team has done.  Then link your own card at the site by 1:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, November 5.
