July CAS Mix Up 2020

My good friend Loll sent me a stencil a while back, made from a SSS Birch Tree Window die. The July CAS Mix Up, hosted by Nancy, is challenging us to do some stencil tracing. I ink blended some DOX inks over some Bristol paper in the tones of Broken China, Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint. I removed the stencil and hand drew, with a black Micron pen one side of the birch trees. Some grey water colours were added to the same edge. A Spellbinder tag was tinted in Broken China and stamped with a Technique Tuesday stamp in Versafine black ink.

I hope you’ll check out the CAS Mix Up blog to see some amazing cards from our Designers, Guest Designers, and, of course YOU 😀 . Thanks for stopping by, HUGz,

  3. Amazing design Jo! Adding the gray watercolouring beside the outline really gives depth and dimension to the birch trees. Beautiful card!


  4. The detail of the outlined birches is amazing, Joanna! It adds such dimension to the forest scene! The sponged background adds wonderful depth!

  5. At first glance I would have sworn this was a window die cut. What an amazing job you did on one layer and what a steady hand you have to line the sides of the trees adding so much dimension. This is really outstanding work!
