Party Banners

Hi and welcome to SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge.  This week we have such a fun photo and sketch to inspire you:


I mainly stuck with the photo but there's also a bit of sketch in there too :)



After sponging some distress inks onto some watercolor paper, I die-cut using the fun Party Banner Duo dies.  I then spritzed some Perfect Pearls mist which gives a lovely shimmer in real life.  Putting the banners aside, I stamped the sentiment from Celebrate All The Things and embossed it with Black Sparkle embossing powder.  The panel was die-cut with Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles and foam mounted onto a white card base.




Thanks for visiting!
Here are the guidelines to join in our challenge:

  • SugarPea Designs stamps are NOT required to play along or to win but would be appreciated :)
  • You may rotate/flip the sketch & replace shapes – so long as the original sketch layout is recognizable.

Wonderful CAS card - the bright banners are perfect on the clean white - and the extra touch of sponged colors gives them such dimension.
