CAS Mix Up CAS Challenge - August
Hello lovely crafters. I hope your weekend has gotten off to a good start! Mine has, I have been in my craft room (attic) today, as I wanted to get a card made for the August challenge over at one of my favourite challengs CAS Mix Up where Loll, Bonnie and the team want to see, stamping, sprays and 'your choice'.
As per usual. I will post the pictures first and then, for those who wish, I will have the details below the pictures. Here it is then.
First, I knew that I wanted to try an ombre effect with my spraying, so I laid a panel on the floor on a large, wipe-clean surface and got out my spray - made with a tiny drop of Imagination Crafts 'Starlights' paint in a Mini Mister, topped up with water, and sprayed, low to the floor from the bottom, so that the spray was more concentrated there and getting progressively less towards the top.
Whilst that panel was drying, I sprayed a stencil with the same spray and then used it for the stencil mono-print technique - using the sprayed stencil like a stamp on to the white card base.
When both were dry, I cut a scalloped rectangle a bit larger than my focal panel out of vellum and adhered that directly to the card base, then mounted the sprayed panel on top of that with craft foam.
I finished it off with some heat embossed butterflies that I had cut out individually from a large, Memory Box stamp called, 'Flutterings'. I had seen other people do the same thing and Loll herself has done it before and I loved the idea!
Finally, I cut the greeting out of some foiled packaging that almost matched the embossing, and that was it my friends! Job done!
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 to you via e-mail.
