Challenge #160: Sketch

Welcome back to another week of challenges here at CAS Colours and Sketches. Thank you for all your lovely entries into last week's colour challenge; this week I have a sketch for you and I hope I haven't made it too taxing! 


Please feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when creating your card or choose a rectangular card blank in place of my square design. The circles (which differ in size slightly) can be replaced by other shapes but the overall design must be adhered to in order to be considered for our weekly winners' spot.

The design team have come up with lots of different ways of interpreting the sketch. I hope you're inspired to play along with us and link up your card below:

Challenge End Time:  6:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time/11:00 p.m. London U.K. time Wednesday 17th February 2016.

Challenge #159: Colours

It's Stef here, your hostess for a new month of challenges at CAS Colours and Sketches. It's cold, wet and rainy here in the UK so I thought I would brighten things up with a more cheerful set of colours to start the month.


We've used Stampin' Up colour names for reference; however, you may use any companies' products for your cards as long as you match our colours as closely as possible. Lighter and darker shades of the three challenge colours, such as derived from watercoloring an image, are allowed. You may also use white, ivory, kraft, or black for your card base and layers, for image outlines, or for sentiments. However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours.

I thought I would squeeze in another Valentine themed card so now I have a choice of which one to give my other half! Have a look at the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team below to give you even more ideas:




The Design Team is pleased to introduce Stempelfrida as our Guest Designer for the month of February!  Her name was selected from among our Weekly Winners from the months of November and December.  She has been a frequent participant in our challenges throughout the last twelve months, and we're so happy to have her as our Guest Designer!  We think you'll enjoy seeing her artwork here, too.  Here is what she's created with this week's colours:

Every week we receive some entries that do not follow our challenge rules. We only have a few simple challenge requirements which are listed in the Challenge Rules tab.  Please read them very carefully before linking your card if you would like us to consider your card to be one of our weekly winners.  Happy crafting!


Challenge End Time:  6:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time/11:00 p.m. London U.K. time Wednesday 10th February 2016.

Challenge #158 - Sketch

Hello!  It's Patricia here with one more January challenge for you.  This week is sketch week, and here's what I've come up with:


Although I've drawn up the sketch as a rectangular card, you're welcome to make yours into a square if you prefer.  Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when creating your card.

Here's a hint for that tilted panel:  Cut a panel the same size as your card front.  Put whatever clean and simple design you want on it.  Attach it at an angle to your card base, and trim off the excess.  Boom!  You've nailed the sketch!

The Design Team has created the following cards to help inspire you.  Their names link to their blogs, so please feel welcome to click on them for details and to leave any comments you might have!
