Have a great day

I am so honoured to be part of this dynamic Design Teamchallenge-nov-2016 from the CAS Mix Up Challenge blog.  Every month a new technique is suggested and the Design Team has inspiring cards to get your mojo running.  NOVEMBER is Stamping + Masking + picking something from the “Your Choice” list in the right side bar  😉

For this card I stamped the cycle in Versafine Onyx Black on Bristol paper and on a piece of post-it note.  I fussy cut the second stamped cycle and placed it over my stamped Bristol paper.  I cut a 5,5″ x 4,25″ piece of Avery Sticker Project Paper and die cut IT with a rounded rectangle die from MFT.  The frame of this piece was placed over my Bristol Paper and I began smooshing water colours of yellow, blue and green.  After drying, with the masking still in place, I grabbed a big postage stamp and stamped this in grey.  I then removed the frame masking, left the cycle masking in place, and then place the rectangle die-cut mask over the smooshed area.  Using a stencil, I added light molding paste to the contour.  It was finished by adding a black tag and white embossed “have a great day”.
