The Colour Tree Challenge #12 and CAS(E) this sketch

Well I hope you have all had a Happy Easter. I certainly did and ran out of time for crafting before the weekend, so I am quite late to join the Colour Tree Challenge for this week. However, the colours are so gorgeous that I did make 2 cards which I would love to share with you.


I love the new Timeless Textures stamp set and all the amazing effects you can achieve with it. I think it particularly lends itself to masculine cards too. Mossy Meadow is such a strong colour it certainly looks great cut as the leaf skeleton from the Rose Wonder thinlits. Mossy Meadow will be retiring along with Lost Lagoon in only a few short months and I will be sad to see them go, so make sure you have your ink refills before the stock runs out. It was a good opportunity to use up some thick bakers twine in those colours, and some timber flags from an old Project Life kit too.
I took the layout from CAS(E) this sketch and had some fun with these colours.


While I had the colours out I created a second card. This time I used the Soft Suede ink on the timber sentiment so it came out a little dark. some dazzling diamonds details helps to lighten this up. The flowers are from the Sale-A Bration set Botanicals for You which has some super cute emblems in it, and the Timeless Textures panel is similar to the first card.



I hope you feel inspired to use this wonderful Colour Combination and that you "ink Up and Link Up" too. You can join us HERE at the Colour Tree Challenge.

Thanks for looking,

Liz
