colourQ 178

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

The colors this week at colourQ were a perfect excuse to sharpen my masculine card making skills.  Especially since I saw that the challenge this week at Addicted to CAS was to make a masculine card!



The horizontal sketch layout at CAS(E) This Sketch had me stumped at first, but then I got the bright idea to line up thin layers of cardstock on an angle.  I really like how it turned out.  And, of course, in a case of me merrily making my card and not paying attention to the challenge, I had the whole thing put together ready for photographing before I realized that I forgot the Summer Starfruit.  So I carefully pried apart my layers and stuck a piece of Summer Starfruit under the sentiment.  Presto!


Don't forget to head on over to colourQ and check out the challenge and the other cards from the design team.  They are amazing as always!

Supplies:
Stamps:  WTF (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps)

Every time I see this stamp, I'm a little shocked. And then I remember it's ok! lol! I love how you made the backing panel with those stripes of blue - perfect masculine card. Thanks so much for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

What a great masculine card. I love how you used all different color strips for the background, rather than the solid block shown in the sketch.
