Two wonderful artists, Bonnie Klass and Loll Thompson, have HONOURED me to be a guest on their wonderful blog, CAS Mix Up Challenge. A place where one has fun exploring new or different techniques in card creations.
The challenge for the month of August is:
STAMPING + SPRAYS + YOUR CHOICE
I began by prepping Bristol paper by stencilling different mediums, Gesso and light molding paste. Once dry, I sprayed first with water to decrease the intensity of the colour and then I used Dylusion sprays (Cherry Pie & Lemon Zest) and added a pinch of natural walnut stain powder. The results gave me a subtle resist where the paste was applied. I die-cut a rectangle with MFT’s largest Die-namics Horizontal Stitched Strips and then die-cut the edge of that piece with a heart die. Using gold paper stock, I cut one of the Die-namics Stitched Square Scallop Frames and wrapped gold thread to one side. With the Quilted, Next Level Embossing Folder from We R Memory Keepers, I lightly embossed a shimmery card stock and finally put the card together adding droplets of Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine spray to the piece . I stamped “du Fond du Coeur” (From the bottom of my heart) to the bottom right of the coloured rectangle.
I hope you’ll get inspired to join us for this amazing journey of fun and discovery 😀 Thanks for stopping by!
