May CAS Mix Up Reminder 2020

We’re midway for our Gesso Resist CAS Mix Up Challenge hosted by our talented Loll. Remember to head back to the blog for more inspiration from our special Guest Pooja, the design team and some videos.

I made a die cut stencil with a McCollection feather die and kept both pieces. After dry embossing the feather onto my OLC, I placed the feather and it’s negative so as to sponge some Gesso onto the tiny apertures. Once dry, I left the negative in place and ink blended some Delicata Gold Ink and some Red dye ink. Then, I replaced the positive adding some Versamark (pen), here and there, over certain openings. After heating the tacky embossing powder, some gilded flakes were applied. I also sprinkled some grains of UTEE and heat embossed. Using a gold gel pen, I did some free hand doodling. Finally, I stamped “coucou!” in the same Delicata Gold Ink.

Do join in on the fun! Hoping to see you in our Gallery, HUGz,
