CAS Mix Up Challenge #2 Take Two
Happy Friday everyone . . . the weekend is on it's way (time whizzes past way too fast for me nowadays - age, I suppose). Anywho, my card today is another for Loll & Bonnie's CAS Mix Up Challenge which states that you need to use, stamping, stencilling and whatever you choose yourself . . . and, of course, it needs to be CAS.
Again, I will show the card first and then describe how I made it below the pictures.
The first thing I did was to make a watercolour panel with three different blue inks by blending, drying and finally water-marking with water. Then whilst that was drying I took a white card base and a stencil and spread a little white embossing paste on to the left hand side of the card, because I knew I wanted to put my focal piece to the right, then I let that dry.
When the watercolour panel was dry, I ran it through my Big Shot with a stitched tag die. Then I used a hole punch and made a hole in the top of the tag.
The next thing I did, was to stamp in Versamark an image on to the tag with a Stampin' Up stamp from the 'Garden Silhouettes' set and heat emboss in white.
Then I made a 'tassel' with some twine and attached it to the tag. I adhered the tag to the card base with foam tape, cut a 'thanks' die cut out of foam and a piece of white card and mounted that to the tag to finish!
That's it for today my friends! Have a very lovely weekend!
