September CAS Mix Up

Capture d_écran 2018-08-14 à 13.55.15It’s time to play along again with our latest CAS Mix Up September Challenge, hosted by Bonnie.  We’re inking up our stamps with markers.  Our guest this month is Chrissie!

For my card, I started with a piece of vellum, the Penny Black Gentle Whisper stamp and my Misti.  Because the ink rests on top of this paper, I occasionally dried with my heat gun before adding more ink.  Tombow dual brush markers were used for this technique (Cool Gray #5 and Black).  I also added some ColorBox Frost white pigment ink refill, with a small brush, to give the flower some highlights.  Once satisfied I left the stamp in the Misti and cleaned it.  To fix all this colour on the vellum, I added Versamark in order to clear heat embossed the final result.

Using Altenew fine frames rectangles die on white and gray card stock, I added three frames for my torn vellum piece.  I also use tengucho paper for added framing.  This was adhered to a texture white card base and the card was done.

I’m also linking my card to the Less is More Challenge #379 where the theme is Black, White + One Colour (hoping gray counts 😉 )


Now let’s see what fantastic inspiration the CAS Mix Up design team has created for you and do check out their personal blogs if you have the time, as there could be a bonus approach to inking up with markers 😉  Thanks for stopping by, HUGz,
