I'm here today with a mid-month reminder that you still have until October 24th to link up a card for the CAS Mix Up Challenge! I am the hostess this month and this is my challenge:
For my card, I used stamping, layering stencils and a stitched edge die.
Here is a pic of the supplies I used - the stencil is from The Crafters Workshop and I overlapped 3 of the stencil designs inking each one with a different Ranger Distress Oxide Ink. I used Salty Ocean, Abandoned Coral and Spiced Marmalade. Distress Oxides are really juicy so you need to dry each stenciling before moving onto the next when you overlay them. Also with a stencil like this you need to clean it off well and dry it before stenciling another part on your panel - you can get smudges
(you can see a couple of smudges on my panel below! luckily they mostly got cut off with the die!)
I die cut the stenciled panel with a stitched edged rectangle and then spritzed it lightly with water. The water makes the Oxides turn chalky and sort of seals them into the cardstock. I layered it to the card base with foam dots and stamped my sentiment.
After I made my first card - I tried another using the same stencil but different color inks - this one looks more masculine using Distress Oxide Inks in Peeled Paint, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain.
So please join us over at the CAS Mix Up Challenge and show us how you layer stencils on your CAS card! You have until Oct 24th!Stamps: Clearly Sentimental about Art - MFT (no longer available)
