CAS Mix Up - August Challenge
Hello crafty friends! What a beautiful day we are having here in the SW of the UK, which makes a change for this part of the world! Are you all having good weather? I know that I have been remiss lately with my card making, but I have been engrossed with 'pocket letters' , which means, of course, that there is a whole raft of different supplies I need to get . . . joking!!
As we are going to be away from any form of technology from next week until the end of September, I thought that I should get at least one card made before we go. I do have my usual scheduled post ready, but that's it.
So, with out further ado, I will introduce my card. This is for the CAS Mix Up August Challenge, which calls for, stamping, sprays and your choice.
My choice is, a die cut. As always, details will be below the pics.
I don't know if this technically qualifies as 'spraying' as it was only water. I hope so.
As my Brushos have sat neglected since I bought them and tried them out the once, I thought I would get them out and have a play.
First, I took a piece of watercolour 'paper' and sprinkle some 'Leaf Green' and 'Turquoise' Brushos on to the piece and then sprayed with water, then I watched the magic happen. I sprinkled a bit more in places that seemed to be missed and tilted the paper around, to get the Brushos moving. Just before it was completely dry, I sprinkled a little more and sprayed sparingly with a little more water. Then I left it to dry.
I liked how the piece turned out, so I didn't want to cover it up too much, so I chose a die cut that would not obscure too much of the background. I adhered the Brusho panel flat to a slightly textured card base, adhered the die cut and stamped the sentiment with two different colour pigment inks.
Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment. You are all appreciated more than you know! If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.
