The mix of the emboss resist technique with the silhouettes of the deer is simply stunning. The autumnal colours finish it off perfectly

Fabulous detail from the sentiment matches with bright colours from the watercolour wash is finished off with a little bit of bling.  A great CAS card

This beautiful, understated card is a great example of how CAS and vintage can co-exist successfully. The sepia tones, tranquil scene and perfectly matched sentiment create a lovely effect.

Claire


 
A stunning design with the artistic inked and stamped feather and vintage effect embossing in the background. Stylish and beautifully laid out, it's another great example of CAS vintage.

Gerrina



This card had us all wowed with its bright colours and vibrant shapes! It's a brilliant take on the vintage theme with its distinctive retro vibe and fun feel. Rock 'n' roll baby!

Challenge #304 - Recipe

Hey can you believe that's another week ticked off and we're back with another challenge for you.
 We certainly had lots of Vintage inspiration from you so we're guessing you enjoyed that one!

Today we have our RECIPE week and we'd like you to use an
EMBOSS RESIST TECHNIQUE on your projects

There's various ways to achieve this look but from a quick internet search here's
 a little definition for you!

"Pour clear / white embossing powder over stamped images
Heat emboss and allow to cool
Using light inks / watercolours, begin blending colour onto the
card stock to reveal the embossed images"


So without further ado here's what our Design Team have created
to inspire you and there could be a couple of bonus cards on their
personal blogs if you'd like to pop along and visit them!









As always please keep your designs Clean and Simple with lots of 'white / blank space' and do check our 'Challenge Guidelines at the top right of the blog along with our page 'How to Play'.

We hope you feel inspired to play along and have some fun.

Don't forget to check our our Facebook Page slideshows, throughout the week HERE especially on Wednesday, when we showcase our random selection of early entries to the challenge and Fridays, when we'll be revealing our favourites from the previous week's challenge.
