Challenge #215 - Colours

Hello there!  The third Thursday of the month means it's time for another colour challenge here at CAS Colours and Sketches.  Patricia is our hostess again, and here are our colours this time:


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. You may also use neutral colours (white, cream, kraft, brown, grey, or black) for card layers, sentiments, and image outlines. However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours.

Let's see what the CC&S Design Team and March guest designer have done with these bold, bright colours:

Challenge #214 - Sketch

Hello, crafting friends!  It's time for the first sketch challenge of March 2017.  Here is what our challenge host, Patricia, has drawn up for your consideration:

You're also welcome to change it from a rectangular format to a square.  So long as we can see the basic elements of the sketch, you're good!  Just remember to keep it clean and simple in design, since that's the main idea of our challenges.

Challenge #213 - Colours

Hello everyone!  Welcome to a new month of challenges at CAS Colours & Sketches!  I'm Patricia, and I'm excited to be your challenge hostess this month.  If you're new here, we hope you'll join in the fun and creativity.  If you're a returning participant, we're glad you're back with us again!

This week we have a colour challenge for you, and there's a story behind the colors I've chosen.  I enjoy watching college football (American football, not soccer ;) ) and I'm proud to say that my alma mater's team, the James Madison University Dukes, won the national title in their division for the 2016 season.  In honor of them, I've chosen purple and a golden yellow for the school colors, plus grey to represent their bulldog mascot.


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. You may also use neutral colours (white, cream, kraft, brown, grey, or black) for card layers, sentiments, and image outlines. However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours.

Here is some inspiration from the design team, plus a picture of JMU's Duke Dog mascot, to jump start your creativity:
