Using one third or less ;)

There’s a new CAS challenge called Perfectly CAS, their first theme is FLOWERS. Of course the rule is to use 1/3 or less. LOVE IT! I’m also using the Less is More Challenge #404 – Typography.

For this Alexandra Renke Magic Poppy die cut, I heat embossed several times in white pearl EP. Using the negative of the die-cut I sponged some blue and green Memento Inks, added some sticky EP, applied Pearl Ex white micro pearl powder and reheated to fix the powder. Then, for typography, I used the same inks and I stamped “Une petite attention JUSTE POUR TOI” (A special something just for you), added sticky EP and again applied micro pearl powder. I finally glued with matte medium the poppy die-cut and the card was done.

Thanks so much for stopping by, HUGz, Joanna

September CAS Mix Up Reminder 2019

We’re half way through the month at the CAS Mix Up Challenge! The theme is INCHIES, we’re working on tiny little tiles to compliment any and every card. There’s so much inspiration to be found on the blog, videos, creative design team, along with our special guest, Stephanie (my Ink well)!

For this simple card I wanted to used an old stamp set from Technique Tuesday called Chickadees. On a thick card stock inchie, I stamped the smallest of the birds and heat embossed three times. I then stamped the other two onto my card base. All three were watercoloured in cobalt and rose madder pigments. I also added some cobalt blue to ground the chicks. Iridescent medium was added to the surface of the inchie and the sides were painted with cobalt blue and then sealed with clear EP to avoid any transfer once gluing it to my card base.

I hope you’ll join us in our gallery for this simple challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by,
