AVANT GARDEN- CAS COLOURS AND SKETCHES

There is a colour challenge over at CAS Colours and Sketches this week.  I do like colour challenges because they really get you out of your comfort zone and make you use colours, be it inks or papers you otherwise would leave at the bottom of the pile!

I'm not a fan of Flirty Flamingo and don't often use it  - so it was nice to have to use it in this sketch.  Mind you, you have to look hard to find it on my card.  It's actually just used on the petals of the flowers, along with the Watermelon Wonder but it has come out a bit dark in the photo.

As the challenge is clean and simple I have tried to keep this as plain as I could.  I love the flowers in this Avant-Garden Sale-A-Bration set and what's not to like when it's a FREE set!

Good to get out of the old comfort zone - and very satisfying when you succeed too! X

Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S! It is always hard to use colors that don't speak to you - you did a wonderful job combining them on the flower!

Great use of the colours, I'm not a big fan of watermelon wonder but like you was glad of the chance to step outside of my comfort zone. Thanks for playing along at CC&S.
