Many of us like to add bows, lace and lots of embellishments. This month we are asking you to leave all that off and create a CAS card. Link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge creation HERE to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB13. You have until August 31st to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!
I'll be the first to admit that the CAS style does not come easily to me, I love layers and bows and lots of pretties, so I nearly died when I saw this month's challenge! I just left it pretty basic and let the colours do the talking. My base is white and then I popped a layer of Rich Razzleberry and White (scored on my scor-pal) up on foam tape. Around this I knotted (see, NO BOW!) some white organdy ribbon that was coloured with a RV63 Copic Marker. In the corners I've added a couple of clear rhinestones - also coloured with the RV63 Copic. Finally I stamped the Zinnias and sentiment from the Zinnias stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copic Markers (RV63, RV66, G40, G82, G85, Y21, Y35). It was cut out with Labels 18 Nestabilities, sponged with a little Dandelion Memento ink and also popped up on foam tape.
