Can You Case it? Design Team - Color Challenge CYCI #76

Good morning!  The rain is finally stopping, WOW what an interesting day yesterday!  Today Aidan and are up and out of the house early to volunteer at a local triathlon, this is our first time working a race and we’re both excited to cheer on the racers and a triathlon is such an unusual event, should be fun.  Of course since it’s Sunday I have a card for your for this weeks Can You Case It? Sketch challenge.  We were given a color challenge to use the new 2015-2017 In Colors and I kind of misread the instructions and thought we had to use all 5 so I made it harder for myself than I needed to but used all new products which was lots of fun.

I started with Tip Top Toupe cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of the Color Me Irresistible Speciality Designer Series Paper (love this type of embossed paper since I can color however I want!). I used sponges to sponge the different In Colors on the paper to create a type of rainbow and then matted it with Whisper White cardstock so it really popped against the cardbase.

For the greeting I used the new Hostess Set, A Whole Lot of Lovey and used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the greeting in before stamping on Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Big Shot and the Circle Collection Framelits to cut out the greeting and then matted it with a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock that was punched out with the 2 ½” Circle Punch and attached to the cardfront with dimensionals.  The final touch was to add a knot I tied using the Tip Top Toupe  1” Dotted Lace Trim (actually double knotted it so the knot was bigger) and attached it to the cardfront with a couple of glue dots.

I love how the white rain drops pop against the colors in the background and the greeting is a soft contrast which is so pretty.  Make sure to check out the other design team creations for further inspiration and then come play along, we love to see what others create.
