CAS-ual Fridays Color Blocking


Hey guys, I am playing again at CAS-ual Fridays where for their 7th challenge the theme is color blocking. This is not a usual color combo for me but after creating my focal image...the other papers just felt right. I created my color blocks by a direct to paper method with my Tim Holtz distress ink pads and will certainly try this again. I used a tree image from Sarasota Stamps which I purchased at a stamp show last summer as well as the navy textured paper from Rubber Cottage. I am going back to that same show in a few weeks and hope to get some more of this paper.

My inside was stamped using Stampin' Up's set "Happy Everything". Now what are you waiting for...get your CAS thinking cap on and hop on over to CAS-ual Fridays and have a go at this. Lots of inspiration and lots of fun creating for them.
