May CAS Mix Up 2020

Linda is hosting our CAS Mix Up Challenge this month, using some Gesso Resist. As usual there is plenty of inspiration from videos, the design team and our special guest Pooja.

For this card I die cut 3 Ginkgo IO leaves. I added some gesso with a brayer over the embossed leaves and then with a brush on the edges. I sprinkled some Ost. Blue Brusho and spritzed with Perfect Pearls. That’s when the magic happened. The blue nuances definitely seduced me. I must admit that I will definitely be using this method again on many of my flower and leaf die collections. A Spellbinders Respendent Rectangle panel was die cut and a Unity Wood Grain stamp, by Christy Tomlinson, was white pearl heat embossed. As for the Ginkgo leaves I had to add some gold embossing powder to the stems and the edges.

Do join us this month. Thank you so much for your encouraging comments,

  1. Wow, how interesting and creative to use Gesso with Brusho and Perfect Pearls, Joanna! The Ginkgo leaves are fabulous!! Love the delicious shades of blue/purple with a hint of pearly shine! The white pearl heat-embossing of the back panel beautifully ties to the gold heat-embossed stems and edges of the leaves.
