CAS-Colour and Sketches Challenge

Happy Friday Eve and time for our weekly challenge at CAS-Colour and Sketches. And this week we have this colour combo for you.

You can make cards using the closest you can to these colours.

Here is what I came up with:

I had trouble with these colours myself as I don't have any of these inks except the red. And being a lover of stamps rather than coloured and patterned card, I had to think for a while. I eventually got out some white core DCWV card I have had for ages and sat with the SU colour guide until I found a card that matched 'river rock'. I was so pleased when I found it! Then I went through the Mum's old button tin and found the perfect match for the suede colour. So I managed to get this combo and only used my red ink. Amazing what we can find in our stash!!
I had all these elements together then saw this card from Aimes and inspiration struck me-so thank you Aimes.
Our DT have some great cards using this combo so visit our blog here and take a look.

Happy stamping my friends.
