Hello!  It’s time for another sketch challenge at CAS – Colours and Sketches!   As always, the sketch can be rotated or flipped – so long as we can see the basic elements of the original sketch, it’s all good!

I’ve stretched the sketch out to a portrait-oriented rectangle for this card.  After a lot of thinking of various things I could use for the circular elements, I finally decided on these cute little birdies.  I stamped them onto scraps of designer paper, colored in their beaks, and fussy cut them.  I positioned them in place on the sky blue background, drew in the birds’ legs and the rightmost bird’s right eye, and then used dimensional adhesive to pop the birds up over the background. Admittedly, it’s not the most imaginative use of dimension, but it’s enough to qualify this card for the current Lawnscaping challenge.  The code word for the current challenge at Addicted to CAS is “cute”, and it’s “Clean and Simple” week at Addicted to Stamps, so I’m going to enter into those challenges, too.  And it’s a good card to add to my stash for Operation Write Home!


Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you’ll join us over at CAS – Colours and Sketches with your own take on this sketch!  You have until 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, April 15 to link your card at the challenge website.
