Chevrons for CAS(E) this Sketch!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

I showed you the last of my Valentines yesterday so there is nothing sweet or loving here!!

I did venture way, WAY out of my comfort zone and wanted to share this card.  It's for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch.

Just a Note

For most designers there is nothing particularly unique about this - but I don't generally just plop on a variety of shapes - I am a mathematician by trade and things have to be organized and balanced and sensible!!?? IS a challenge - and I challenged myself - and I kinda like it!!

I'm looking forward to seeing what you do!!

  • Stamps: Avery Elle To the Point
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie, Marina Mist, Basic Gray, Papertrey Soft Stone (I actually have to credit the pumpkin, blue, gray combo to the good ladies at Merry Mondays who recently used it as a fun Christmas challenge.  Obviously this isn't a Christmas card, but I definitely earmarked the color combo has a fun one!)
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie, Marina Mist
  • Accessories: Papertrey Ink Orange Zest button

I like it a lot - I agree that it's tricky to make a little collage of shapes that's pleasing to the eye, but you've made it look very easy! I love that touch of sand - great idea!

This is just so pretty! Clean and simple with the right amount of little touches! It is difficult to achieve that balance and you did it beautifully!

The balance looks perfect to me, especially with your funky choice of colour!

Um, Kims, I'm the opposite of a math person, but I have to say that nothing on this card looks like you "just plopped on a variety of shapes." It all looks quite well thought out and brilliantly plopped and colored to me!!

What a perfect take on the sketch! I love the colors and how balanced everything is. It's perfect!

I struggle to use orange but you've made it look so easy. This looks a difficult sketch but you've made it look simple with a very pleasing result. x

This is gorgeous Kim, I love it. The orange button really sets it off. :)
