Addicted to CAS Challenge #69


Hi everyone ~
I'm back with the latest challenge details for Addicted to CAS. For this challenge, our hostess is Bhavana, and she has chosen the Code Word 'Banners'. We also have an amazing Guest Designer for the month of August ~ Linda Beeson, and she has created the most adorable card for this challenge! 

So, here is my first card:


I started by embossing the background with PTI Sunrise Impression Plate and die cut the banners with my Silhouette after water coloring with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi water colors. The sentiment is from Penny Black and the bows are from La Pareja Creativa. 

_____________________________________

A few weeks ago, I won the Time Out Challenge, and my prize was one of Deepti's newest stamp sets called Balloons and Banners - Dee's Artsy Impressions...Banners you say? Oh yes, so here is my second card:


I stamped one of the banners in rainbow order, and repeated it in reverse order. I divided the panel, stamped the sentiment, then added a few enamel dots...and that was it!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Scrappiness Designs, and they have generously offered a $5.00 voucher to their digi store for the winner!


We would love to have you join us for this challenge...deadline is Friday, August 14th, so there is plenty of time to submit your entries! Thanks so much for stopping by,

The monochrome watercoloured banners are gorgeously crisp and fresh, Barb ... and oh my, those tiny rainbow banners against all that glorious white space ... sigh ... blissful! Anita :)

Both cards are fab, though I do lean just a bit more towards the first one...that background embossing is just striking.

Barb, love both cards! Dry embossed white background works so well with watercoloured banners and the sentiment, the Sun rays point to both elements of the card. Enamel dots and fishtailed banners go perfectly together making your CAS card so wonderful!
