June CAS Mix Up Reminder 2019

Capture d’écran 2019-05-24 à 14.18.32Welcome back to our CAS Mix Up Reminder.  Mac has chosen the OMBRtheme this month and the design team, along with our special guest Bobby, have lots of beautiful cards prepared for you.

This card is truly a quick card.  Using the Penny Black largest flutter, I covered it with some white iridescent acrylic paint.  Then, using my stylus, I added dots of orange paint in the center.  I worked myself towards the exterior adding some titanium white acrylic paint to lighten up the colour twice.  For the card base I Silver Pearl heat embossed the Kaisercraft BG oriental stamp.  The center of the butterfly was heat embossed with blue then silver pearl to get this greyish body.   Finally I added some pearly sequins with a tiny pearl in the center.

Please join us in the fun, there are lots of videos to get the mojo on the creative gear.  The challenge closes on Monday the 24th of June.  Thanks for stopping by, HUGz,

  1. This is so fascinating, my dear very talented friend! That butterfly is so amazing! I can’t imagine getting those dots so perfectly spaced and shaped and I love the way the color fades! I LOVE that background and I’m going to be on the lookout for that silver pearl embossing powder! Such an awesome card!

  2. OMG, did you add all the dots to the butterfly one by one!? Definitely worth the time doing it. Your butterfly looks so pretty with the shiny ombre effect! Love the silver pearl heat-embossed text background. (It’s old style of Japanese but I cannot read it or don’t understand what it says. ;-)) You’re so creative with heat-embossing and got the color you want for the center of the butterfly. I’ll remember this technique. Thanks!

    • Thank you so much for letting me know in what language this Kaisercraft BG stamp is in. I’ve always wondered. Maybe you can’t read it because I might have stamped it upside down 🤪 xxx
