June STAMPlorations CAS Challenge - Mahogany

Welcome to the STAMPlorations June CAS Challenge! June means we are seriously into summer now - let's enjoy every moment while it lasts. But a rainy day here and there is great too as the garden needs it and that makes a great opportunity to spend some time in the craft room.

The optional colour twist for the June challenge is Mahogany. It's a reddish brown (or brownish red?). I'm not really into colour theory in depth, so I have devised a cunning plan... When in doubt - do an ombre background. I'm sure some part of my background will qualify as mahogany. Right?

I created the ombre background with Distress Inks Aged Mahogany, Abandoned Coral and Seedless Preserves, and after inking I splattered some water for fun and texture. Then I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the little robot from Little Robots and stamped a sentiment from Big Robots. I know a little guy who is turning 2 very soon who will receive this card!

I hope you feel inspired to join the challenge: June CAS Challenge.
