Hello there!  It’s the fourth Tuesday of the month, which means it’s sketch challenge time again at CAS Colours & Sketches.  This one is pretty unique and I hope our challenge participants will have fun with it.

I was looking through some of my wood-mounted stamps and rediscovered this one.  The three daffodils made me think of the three oval elements of the sketch.  I colored them with colored pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits.  The daffodil image lent itself pretty well to one of our previous CC&S color challenges, too.  The two yellows are really not that different when put next to each other, but I tried to make each of them stand out on the different parts of the blossoms.  When it came to matching cardstock for the card base, Certainly Celery ended up being a better match to my coloring job than Pear Pizzazz.  I didn’t have an octagonal die that matched exactly to the sketch and I didn’t feel like doing the measuring to make sure I cut all the corners the same, so I took the easy way out by using a punch to nip off the corners of the focal panel to give me the octagonal shape.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’ll make a card with this sketch and share it with us at CC&S. You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time Monday, July 1 to link your card at the challenge site.
