Friend Like You for AYSI 220

It's Colour Challenge week at As You See It and LeAnne has chosen these hot colours for us to play with.

I used these colours as an opportunity to revisit a card I made last year and see if it worked in these colours and without Pigment Sprinkles. 

Instead of a Pigment Sprinkle background, I sponged in Poppy Parade, Grapefruit Grove and Mango Melody, blending them carefully together. Then I spritzed them with a fine mist of water and added in some splotches of water to lift the colour before stamping some of the bulrushes.

The hot colours certainly added up to a vision of a hot, lazy summer day: a 'Happy Day'.

It's easy to overlook the Friend Like You bundle in the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue but it is one of those sets that offers a myriad of different looks.

We'd love to see how you see these colours. You have until Wednesday 11 March, 11.55pm PST, to join in with us. You can see what the rest of the team have done, and link up, by visiting the As You See It Challenge page.

  1. Love this Jan! So very bright & cheerful. Hope to case :)

  2. I just love this Jan! Such a great way to use these colours. I love the trio of panels which adds way more interest than a solid piece and the added texture of the white layer really steps things up a notch. I bought this set but still haven't used it - so many stamp sets and so little time. I need to start CASEing you lol!
