Addicted to CAS Challenge #109

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS and our Code Word is 'Rainbow'!


We have a super talented Guest Designer and I'm willing to bet you already know her...Rahmat
Also, our generous Sponsor is Create a Smile and they are offering a GC to their store for the winner!

I have 2 cards to share for this challenge...here is my first card ~


I used an older Pretty Pink Posh set for the umbrellas and sentiment and added clouds with MFT stitched cloud die. A few clear sequins and a stitched mat and that was it!

And, my 2nd card:


For this card, I blended some distress inks in rainbow order and after die cutting the butterfly, I added a few coats of Versmark and clear embossing powder to create a high shine. I'm really loving these new Confetti sequins...they have a mirror-like effect, and look really pretty on a card.
I am also entering my 2nd card in to the current challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.

I hope you'll stop by the ATCAS Challenge Blog to check out all the beautiful cards by my teamies and Guest Designer, and that you'll consider playing along with us ~

 Happy Easter to those who celebrate! Thanks so much for stopping by,

Two gorgeous cards, Barb! Your row of umbrellas look so fun, especially as they are deliberately angled different ways and your ink-blended rainbow panel on your second card is amazing! Love both of these.

Those umbrella's look so cheery...I love a soft rain and a walk with a bright umbrella. This card reminded me of that. Your rainbow swoosh is inked so perfectly and I love that you have the two differing edges one smooth and once scalloped nice design choice.

Anita in France said...

Those rainbow polka dot brollies are so fun and whimsical, Barb ... and I adore your shiny black butterfly, it's gorgeous against that deliciously blended rainbow swoosh ... and so pretty with the scalloped edge! Hugs, Anita :)

I really do love your style, Barb! Both cards are so clever & beautiful--love the rainbow of umbrellas & your butterfly card is stunning!

Wiebke Kommerell said...

Barb, I love how you add the rainbow colors not to this beautiful butterfly but instead to the background!
Such a great balance between clear lines and scrillbling, colors and black, great bright white area and the swing of your rainbow-line!

Thanks for sharing this Art-Card with us :-)
