CAS Mix Up Challenge - Splattering


Hello lovely crafters and friends!  Today, my card is for the CAS Mix Up Challenge and their challenge this month is 'Splattering'.


This is my card and I will explain the techniques and products used, below.






First, I took a plain white panel the same size as my card base and gave it the 'faux wood' treatment.  I scored some lines for the 'planks' then I dragged some distress inks down the front to represent the 'grain'.  Then I splattered it with some water, to make it look even more worn and weathered.  I let it dry and then adhered it to my card base.

Next, I stamped my image with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Platinum embossing powder.  I coloured the flowers by sponge blending and fussy cut it out.

Next. I took a plain white panel and cut it at an angle and edged it with black card-stock and adhered that to the wood panel.  I then mounted my image with foam tape for dimension.  Stamped the sentiment in black and added some dots of enamel accents in black to tie it all in.  A lick of Stella to the flower and called it done!

So, techniques are, stamping, distressing, water splattering, heat embossing and ink blending.

  5. This is totally gorgeous Hazel and I love the way you have blended the inks on the the flower and foliage so prettily. The woodgrain is so realistic and the black edged and angled layer with your flower laid at the corner works beautifully. A great sentiment and the black dots tie in perfectly. x
