Hello!  We have a fun sketch challenge for you this week at CAS Colours & Sketches and I hope our participants like it as much as I do!  I think it’s a pretty versatile one.

I’m trying to get some more love-themed cards made to donate to Send A Smile 4 Kids before Valentine’s Day, so that helped determine what I was going to do with the sketch.  I originally planned to do something with different shades of pink cardstock, using a light pink for most of the card and using a darker pink for the curved part of the sketch.  When I was looking through my folder of light pink cardstock, I found a scrap of of some coordinating background paper I’d made a few years ago.  For that project, I’d splattered pink ink over some textured white cardstock and then sprayed it with gold pearl mist.  I decided to cut hearts from this and use them to decorate the curved part of the sketch.  To give the hearts better definition from the pink card base, I backed them with a scrap of brushed gold cardstock.  A simple sentiment in gold ink finished off the card.  The pink panels are raised up with shims of scrap cardstock so they are a little higher than the hearts.

I’m going to enter this into the current challenge at Shopping Our Stash, where they’re asking their participants to use gold on their cards, and the current Uniko Studio challenge, “Anything Goes, with an optional twist of love”.
