Colours and Sketches

At Colours and Sketches this week, the chosen shades are...

It just so happens that I had all three in my stash...unusually!
I have some new Art Impressions watercolour stamps and was having a play and came up with this!
In order to achieve a slightly darker shade for some leaves, (with no other colour allowed) I inked the tiny stamp with the Cantaloupe before inking with the Coastal Cabana.
It's mounted on Die-namics pierced rectangles and accompanied by what I believe is Simon Says Stamp die-cuts.

Casual Friday's challenge this time is for a masculine card with the addition of ribbon!


Here are more Art Impressions stamps gently water-coloured. The sentiment is a tiny one from Stampin' Up.
Once more a Die-namics  die was used to cut the mount, this time a pierced oval.

  12. Two fabulous cards! The flower box on the first card turned out wonderfully, and that was a very clever way to figure out the shading in the leaves. Thanks so much for sharing your work with us at CAS - Colours and Sketches. I hope you'll join us again soon for another challenge! :)
