August CAS Mix Up Challenge

Capture d_écran 2018-07-18 à 15.25.55Welcome back to a new August challenge at CAS Mix Up!  This month we’re tackling stencils, by using them as a mono print.  If you head on back to the blog you’ll discover lots of inspiration from the talented Design Team along with great videos.

I used a stencil which had a strip of daisies.  I masked the bottom part of my bristol paper by tearing a piece of paper.  Then I sprinkled Brushos of primary colours, spritzed with water to activate and, just like stamping, I placed the stencil to make an imprint on the Bristol paper.  I stamped in red archival ink “just pour toi” (just for you) where the mask was and die-cut with a MFT torn notebook.  Before matting this piece onto red card stock, I got back to using a hot plate and UTEE, (see our June layered embossing technique ).  The card stock became translucent since UTEE got underneath so I applied a coat of gesso to the back side of my piece so that the white sections would remain white.  I used the Penny Black border edgers die for the front bottom of my card base to finish.

Can’t wait to see your creations in our gallery.  Thanks so much for stopping by,JoannaIMG_2967
