Hello there!  It’s time for the first sketch challenge of the year at CAS Colours & Sketches.  It’s a fun one that will provide a lot of opportunity for creativity!

For the “non-geometric shape” element, I looked through my animal stamps and settled on this little fox.  I had used other stamps from this set before, but this was a first for him.  I decided to make him a grey fox rather than a red fox, and colored him with my Copics.  I’m not quite sure yet who this card might be going to, so I went with a gender-neutral purple for the present and the birthday hat.  I set off the horizontal strip part of the sketch by piercing two rows across the focal panel.  I couldn’t very well pierce on a one-layer card, so I attached the focal panel to a card base in a coordinating grey, offsetting the panel for a little extra visual interest.  Because of the way the fox is made, I thought it looked better for him to be on the left side of the card than the right, so I’ve flipped the sketch.

What will you do with this sketch? 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, January 18. Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies:
Stamps: Party Animal, Happy Happy Happy (Lawn Fawn)

Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Other: markers (Copic); piercing tool
