sentiment takes centre stage

December! Nearly Christmas! So, at CAS Colours & Sketches we are getting ready for the season with a special Pick A Previous colour and make it Christmas challenge.
It's very easy to do as there is a colour challenge archive on the blog, just browse through 2015 colour challenges and pick your favourite one and give it a Christmas makeover. I chose challenge #144: navy, sky blue and metallic gold.

I used a technique I found on the Internet to create a sentiment-background stamp. I used a lot of different stamps and arranged them on an acrylic block in the design I wanted before inking them all up and stamping onto some white card. I used the dark blue colour for this. 

I have added the metallic gold by using a gel pen and then layering up on gold mirri card.  The washi tape looks lighter than this is day light, it is probably a shade darker than sky blue, but  I hope it will do. It looks a bit like a present, doesn't it? Apologies for the shadow on the photo, it was taken late last night.


  1. Oh wow Louise! Stunning card! Loving those colours Christmassed up.

  2. The festive Christmas messages look fabby in something different than the traditional red and green. Great idea!

  3. Gorgeous card Louise! I love how you grouped the sentiments and the gold gel pen is the perfect accent.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
