ATCAS Challenge - Oriental

Hi everyone,
ATCAS Challenge is one of my all time favorite challenges, and this week's Code Word is 'Oriental'! Well, I knew this was going to be a real stretch for me, so I opened my Silhouette software and went shopping...and this is what I came up with:


The symbol, which I die cut in black means "Love", so I stamped the PTI word in Delicata Gold, as it also keeps with traditional Chinese colors. I also added a strip of gold foil cardstock along the side, and even though I usually add sequins or enamel dots to my cards, I slapped my own hand, and resisted temptation. In the end, I'm happy that this card has crisp, clean lines and no additional elements...truly CAS!

Well, that's it for me today...I hope everyone has had a great weekend ~ Thanks so much for stopping by!

Barb


Supplies:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Wet Paint
Ink: Tsukineko - Delicata Gold
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink - Select White; DCWV - Gold Foil Cardstock
Other: Silhouette Studio - Chinese Characters 'Love'
