Hello there!  It’s time for another sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  This week’s offering is a very clean and simple design that I think is really versatile for lots of different occasions.

I’ve kept the sketch stripped down pretty simply, using just one layer for my card front.  I stretched it out into a portrait-oriented rectangle.  For the “any shape” element, first I made a watercolor wash on watercolor paper.  When it was dry, I used a die to cut it to card size, and I stamped the hummingbird onto it.  I added a sentiment, adhered the card front to a coordinating card base, and called it done.  To be honest, I spent more time waiting for the watercolor wash to dry and practicing stamping the hummingbird on scrap paper than I spent on actual work on the card!

Which reminds me, I need to refill my hummingbird feeders today.  While I do that, why don’t you check out what the rest of the design team has done with this sketch?  I’m sure they’d enjoy it if you stop by their blogs.  Then create a card of your own and share it with us at the CC&S site.  You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Wednesday, July 20 to link your card.  We’d love to have you join in the fun and creativity!
