March CAS Mix Up Reminder

Capture d_écran 2018-11-11 à 12.17.12Welcome back to Capture d’écran 2019-02-25 à 16.41.28the our 3RD ANNIVERSARY & our March CAS Mix Up Challenge to which I’m excited to host.  This month, we’re trying the Faux Stained Glass technique.  Of course, we’ve got plenty of video’s on the blog, but the design team along with our Special Guest Gundi have made some stunning cards to get your mojo started.

For this card, I die cut the Alexandra Renke flower and leaf 4 times with thick Bristol paper.   These were adhered onto the white textured card base.  To seal the apertures I added 2 coats of Gesso before adding the Pébéo mix media acrylics called Prisme Fantasy.  I let this dry overnight and added the white textured die cuts to hide any spillage 😉  “Just un petit mot” (Just a little note) was stamped with Versafine black ink on a piece of vellum and clear heat embossed.  After adhering two sequins in the same colour tones, an Altenew fine rectangle frame secured this piece.

Don’t you love trying something new?   The Design Team as well as our wonderful Guest Designer Gundi  have some awesome inspiration for you.

Thanks for stopping by, HUGz,

  1. Love this large stained glass flower, Jo! Love the patterns of the petals! I always love your thin frames. I bought the die, but I can’t get them to cut through. I’ve tried many different combinations of sandwich but still not much luck. Do you do anything special in your sandwich?

  3. Those Pebeo inks are so cool, Jo. I have been looking at them. Do I really need another colour medium?? … umm … after seeing this beauty, I think the answer is YES! 🙂 Thanks for enabling! xx


  4. Wow, what an incredible effect you achieved with your gesso and paints. Love all the texture in your color of the beautiful flower. It’s always interesting to read the products you use since I’m unfamiliar with so many of them. Thank you for the inspiration. And what a perfect job you did with the faux enameling.

  5. Fabulous idea to use gesso to seal and then using the acrylics. Love the colours and the effect you achieved. Very unique and stunning, with a wonderful CAS design. The texture from the card stock looks fabulous too x.
