A quick little card for the current CAS Color & Sketch Challenge #417.
The Handwritten Sentiments stamp set from the Dina Wakley collection was still on my work table. I wondered whether any of the sentiments could be used to replicate the diagonal pattern and make sense if they were grouped together.
I chose: Don’t take these moments for granted…keep taking chances…stay brave.
What a positive affirmation. Great words to live by.
The sentiments were stamped diagonally on to a piece of Basic White cardstock (4” x 5¼”) using Stazon Black ink for a crisper image.
A mask was die-cut from another piece of Basic White cardstock (4” x 5¼”) using the Beautiful Brushstrokes Die. Using the mask diagonally, I added color to the sentiments with a Sponge Dauber. Mint Macaron, Just Jade and then Soft Succulent.
To fill in a little of the white space, I added Just Jade splatter using the Splatter stamp from the Color & Contour stamp set.
Keeping it simple, the card front was adhered to a Just Jade card base. Why don’t you give this sketch a try? Share what you make.
Thanks for spending some of your time with me today. Cheers, Jolanda!
