Hello!  It’s the third Tuesday of the month, which means it’s color challenge time again at CAS Colours & Sketches.

Despite the cheeriness of the colors, I seem to have a hard time working with both Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral whenever they come up separately in our challenges – so having them together had me puzzled for a while.  I noticed that the current Paper Players challenge is to use birds on a clean and simple card, so I finally decided that the Bermuda Bay and Pool Party could work together to color this bird image I haven’t used yet.  After I stamped the bird on the focal panel, I covered it with a mask and then stenciled blocks in the coral color for a background.  The stamps and the stencil were purchased together as a set.  The blocks should fit the geometric challenge currently going on at AAA Cards.  After I peeled off the mask, I colored the bird with Copics and added in a speech balloon for the sentiment.  I trimmed the bottom corner to mimic the shape of the bird’s body, and mounted the focal panel to a Bermuda Bay card base.
