Hello!  I hope your week has gotten off to a good start.  After a rainy weekend, it’s nice to finally see some sunshine this morning.

It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for a new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  This week is a sketch challenge and I’ll admit I was kind of stumped by it at first.  I don’t have any dies that match well to the rounded shape in the sketch, so I browsed through my stamps.  I’m not exactly sure why this stamp set beckoned to me because the shapes don’t quite match up proportionally to the sketch elements, but it’s such a cute set of stamps that I decided to give it a go anyway.  I stamped the toast slices and the muffin on white cardstock, colored them, and fussy cut them.  My cat thought he could help me cut by jumping up on my desk and head bumping my hand, which made me accidentally cut off an arm on one of the pieces of toast, so I decided to just go ahead and cut off all the arms and legs that are part of the toast images.  They were much easier to cut that way, anyway.  I stamped the toaster on some silver brushed metallic cardstock to make it look like stainless steel and fussy cut it, too.  I searched through my designer papers and found a very old one that had a sort of marble-y kitchen countertop vibe to it, and I chose that for the rectangular part of the sketch.  I held up the various pieces of the card to white cardstock but that seemed a little too bland for the card base, so I looked through my colored cardstocks and picked a light yellow with a subtle linen texture.  The yellow adds some cheer and seemed to coordinate better with the sketch elements than other colors of cardstock.

What will you do with this sketch?  There are so many possibilities!  I hope you’ll try out something and share what you create with us! Link your work to the CAS Colours & Sketches blog by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, June 17.  Thanks for stopping by today!
