Less is More #369

Capture d_écran 2018-04-15 à 15.36.24The Less is More Challenge #369 wants us to “Bring Something Back” from our card making stash.  Lots of great suggestions on the blog to get inspired.

On a Bristol paper card base I added sprinkles of Brushos ( Ost. Blue & Orange) so that my felt die cut boy, with his hidden bouquet of Martha Stewart flowersoft, could be grounded.  A twice heat embossed “Pour Toi” (For You) was stamped to the right.

April CAS Mix Up Reminder

Capture d_écran 2018-03-04 à 16.06.39We’re playing around with the Rubber Band Technique at the CAS Mix Up April Challenge.

For this card I used an acrylic block wrapped with rubber bands and stamped onto my piece of card stock, previously  masked off, using Versamark, so I could clear heat embossed the exposed area.  Then, with the mask still in place, I proceeded to ink blend green and blue Distress Oxide Inks.  The little fishes die cuts, from Impression Obsession, were heat embossed with 2 different embossing powders of green and blue.  I threaded them with green twine and attached them through two green eyelets positioned at the opposite corners of the background.  “Bonne fête Papa” (Happy Birthday Dad) was stamped with Versafine Black Ink and clear heat embossed to prevent the ink from smearing off the already clear embossed areas.

Don’t forget to take a look at all the inspiration from our Design Team including technical videos.  The Challenge ends on the 24th, so you still have time to play 😀  Thanks so much for stopping by, HUGz JoannaIMG_2472
