It’s new challenge day at CAS Colours & Sketches!  This week we have a trio of soft colors for you to work with.

The colors made me think of flowers, so I pulled out a stamp set that has several images of flowers in vases.  Even after considering several possibilities with it, I still wasn’t quite feeling a full-out floral vibe, so I ended up doing something a little less obviously floral with other stamps from the set.  I used a wavy rectangle outline as a frame for a vertical sentiment, stamping them onto watercolor paper.  After the ink was good and dry, I colored in the outline with a watercolor wash of the three challenge colors.  I also colored washes of the blue and coral colors onto a scrap of watercolor paper, and punched flowers out of them.  I attached the flowers to the card front with coordinating green mini brads and then adhered the front to the card base.  Very CAS!

The Paper Players are celebrating their 500th challenge this week!  WOW, what a tremendous milestone!  Way to go, ladies!

I’m adding this card to the challenge at AAA Cards, too.
