CAS(E) this Sketch # 62

Great design over at CAS(E) This Sketch this week. Simple, clean, graphic and ready to interpret in any style.

Me, I wanted to maintain the clean lines and include a bold colour palette. This time, my hands hovered over some purple cardstock.

And to give it extra dimension, once I had trimmed the purple card down to size, I cut away the two triangles. I adhered the centre piece to the black card first. Then I added back the two triangles but using foam pads to raise them. 

The stripes were created by laying a strip of Washi tape over some pink card and then trimming in half, lengthways on a guillotine. The sentiment is die cut from black card.

Raising the triangles is a nice touch, Paul - love that shade of purple, too - one of my favourite colours! Beautiful x

So dynamic, Paul! This week's cue word at CASology is "purple" and this would certainly fit. What a great color choice!

Very nicely done - and it must be easy selecting card now you have it all in order. I meant to say that in your last post it was hard to believe I wasn't looking at a shop!

Love how you used the raised parts of the card to create depth!
Such a design only works when all the details are perfectly cut! ( the devil is in the detail, right?)
Well your card is perfect! And deep purple is such a strong combination with black, gives your card an extra 'touch'.:-)


ps. Thanks for your 'visit'! Much appreciated.

I really like this 'clean' design and execution - and I'm not usually drawn to purple. Clever use of the washi tape too.
