Addicted to CAS Challenge #122 - Pumpkins


Hi there blog friends,
It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS and just in time for autumn, our theme is 'Pumpkins'! Here is my card:


I wanted to add texture to this card so I used texture paste with the diagonal stripes stencil and Peerless watercolors for the pumpkins. Thank heaven I was finished working on the pumpkins because right afterward I spilled a cup of water onto the yellow/orange/red Peerless swatches...YIKES ~ What a mess!
Anyway, all are welcome to join us over at ATCAS and don't forget we always have a lovely prize for the winner...this time it's a GC from Create a Smile Stamps ~ Hope to see you there!

Have a great weekend ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: PTI - Spooky Smiles (Sentiment)
Dies: SSS - Stitched Pumpkins; MFT - Blueprints 15 (Stitched Border)
Stencil: SSS Diagonal Stripes
Watercolors: Peerless
Gems: PTI - Rainstones

The glow of these fabulous pumpkins is brilliant against the crisp, texture-y white, Barb ... such a delicious CAS card! Peerless and spilt water ... oh my, I can imagine the chaos ... hope the colours are still usable after their dousing! Bon weekend! Hugs, Anita :)

wonderful CAS card, Barb - the striped background is perfect with the pumpkins - can you still use the swatches??? hope so!

Fabulous CAS card, Barb and your vertical element in the background was a genius idea. It adds lovely texture without distracting from those wonderful pumpkins. So glad you had finished your card before you spilled the water on the swatches! I hope they are still usable......

The stenciled background is perfect for these pumpkins and grounds them beautifully. I'm sorry for the spilt water and I hope the watercolors were salvageable.

Those stripes are alovely soft background for your beautifully colored pumpkins.

Susan said...

Your bright pumpkins really pop on the simple white background. Just perfect!

I love the added texture of the embossing paste, Barb. Your painted pumpkins have a lovely glow to them. I solved the spill problem by getting a cup with a closing top. You know, an adult sippy cup. ;)

Wonderful texture from your striped embossing paste background, Barb. Your pumpkins are so beautifully coloured! Gosh, I can just imagine the mess with water hitting peerless swatches ... they are SO FULL on w/c paint! xx

So glad the spilled coffee missed your fabulous pumpkins card! So pretty with their variations in highlights and shadows; the texture paste background is lovely!
