Wonderful World Thinking Of You Card In Memory of Lindsey CCS482

by Joanne James9. August 2022 13:00

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at CAS Colours & SketchesThis week's challenge is a sketch challenge and Nancy has asked that we use the following layout:


Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when making your card. For my card today I am also playing along with the new Color Hues challenge in memory of their team mate Lindsey who recently lost her battle with cancer. She chose the colour scheme of blue and purple and loved clean and simple cards, so I chose to add in flowers as one of her other favourite things and use all three to create a card in her honour today - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I masked off a rectangle and used my blending brushes to add a combination of blues and purple ink, before spalttering lightly with water to create some additional detail. Once dry, I stamped a sentiment from 'Rings of Love' and a single flower stem from the 'Wonderful World' Sale-A-Bration stamp set in Starry Sky ink along the edge of my blended panel:


A trio of clear faceted gems complete my one layer card in memory of Lindsey - I hope I've done her memory proud.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

As a reminder, for our colour challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colours. You may also use neutral colours; however, the challenge colours should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up! color names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colours as closely as possible.

Enjoy your day and I'll be back on Thursday with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Beautiful! Just my kind of card. Love the choice of colours: both elegant and elegaic. The blooms makes for a great silhouette.
