Chalk Lines for CAS Colours & Sketches

Today is the beginning of Caro’s first sketch challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. I hope that you’ll pop over to see what the other design team members have created as well and to join in the fun yourself.

Stampin' Up! Chalk Lines and Watercolor Wishes

Here’s Caro’s sketch which inspired my card:

I took liberties by adding a sentiment but it’s clear that the sketch inspired the card! I used the stamp from Chalk Lines which I’ve never inked up before – just in time since the set is retiring at the end of the month. I decided to go monochromatic and inked it in watermelon wonder and stamped on very vanilla. I turned the image through 180 degrees for the second stamping to create a very symmetrical look.

Next I added a sentiment in watermelon wonder which comes from the Watercolor Wishes set. Yes, again. I am definitely overusing this set! Have you ever found a set that just works everywhere and you can’t stop inking it up?

I then added my very vanilla piece to a watermelon wonder card base. And that’s the very CAS card for this week’s challenge.

I hope that you’ll have a go at this challenge – it would be great to see you in the gallery.

See you tomorrow,



  1. Hi Liz,
    I just received this stamp set yesterday so what a nice surprise to see you using it for the first time today. I got it because I saw some fabulous cards using the large wavy lines image and I thought “better get it before it’s gone”. The image you used is lovely also. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Ann – that’s a great coincidence, I hope that you enjoy using it. I was thinking I’d better use it again soon so hopefully I can show you another idea for it.

  2. Classy and CAS! I love the minimal colours and the sentiment of course! AS you know, I’m stuck on Watercolour Wishes as well – thank goodness it carried over! Caro x
