Guess who gets to play along with the Design Team at Addicted to CAS this month!!!! This will be so fun, can't wait to share my cards with you. We get to start with this great challenge to use banners on a project.
I decided to turn to my PaperTrey, Inc set of tags and make a banner with some of them. I colored a piece of watercolor paper first with Distress Stain. Once that was dry, I cut out the tags. There are a number of tags in this set, I picked out three of them and went with a star theme.
My background was created with Distress Stains too. LOVE using a bit of the Brushed Pewter because the metallic silver is such a neat accent. I thought that the result of the blues and yellows and the stars made for a baby boy theme. Creating a background like this is so fast and easy and looks more complicated then it is. The hard part is walking away and letting it dry. I like to let it dry naturally rather then using my heat gun because I think this allows for a little more character to the splotches of colors. My little elephant stamp from Avery Elle. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.
Be sure to check out the Design Teams cards for this challenge and take the time to play along at Addicted to CAS.
