Well hello there!  It’s the first Thursday of the month, which means we have a new hostess of the month over at CAS Colours & SketchesLouise has come up with some neat challenges for us, and we hope you’ll join in to show us what you can do with them.

We’re starting off the month with a color challenge, and Louise has chosen some bright colors for it.  I used them to create a watercolored background, so the colors are toned down a bit on my card.  The way the colors blended kind of created a fourth color, but trust me, I used only the three challenge colors for the background.  When it was dry, I stamped some silhouetted flowers to make it look like the flowers are set against a sunset sky.  Or maybe it’s a sunrise.  Use your imagination!  🙂  I added a simple thin black mat to the image to make it stand out from the card base, stamped a sentiment, and called it done. It felt good to use some of my older stamps for this card.

  1. Wonderful card, Patricia! The background is beautiful and set off perfectly by the silhouette images.

  2. Wow, Patricia! Love this silhouette scene. Those colours have blended together so well and setting them off on the Kraft card was such a great idea. So happy with all the cards from the DT,
