March CAS Mix Up Reminder

Capture d_écran 2018-02-06 à 11.55.36A reminder ACETATE card for the CAS Mix Up Challenge.  You still have time to play, the challenge runs up to March 24th.  For this card, I was inspired by my good friend Bonnie‘s card and I wanted to try the “Spotlight Technique”.  I first stamped onto white card stock, with Versafine ink, an apple blossom branch which I clear heat embossed.  Then I stamped the same stamp with StazOn black ink onto a die cut circle piece of acetate.  On the opposite side I tried to colour with Copics but this technique just didn’t seem to work for me.  So I took out the Alcohol Inks and using a paint brush I applied the colours.  Without sealing the inks I added Glossy Accents to adhere it to my stamped card stock.  The colours moved around but it left an interesting loose look to it, so, with my scissors, I fussy cut the image.  Using a MFT Stitched Square Scallop Frame, die-cut 3 times, I added a piece of Japanese paper as the background, finishing my card with 5 sequins.

There are lots of inspiration to be found by the Design Team and some videos to give you tricks and tips.  Hope to see you in our gallery, HUGz,
