Wow - the first of December already!! Christmas is closer and the CAS Mix Up Challenge has been posted! Loll is our host and it's an easy one! Yes - we get to choose whatever 2 mixed medias we want!
Well, funny thing - I found it harder to choose on my own rather than be given what to use!
So, I'm sitting at my craft table and I had my new Wonderland Make it Market Kit from PaperTrey Ink - so I decided to use some of it for my card!
I used stamping, masking, stenciling, die cuts and gold embossing!
I have a few photos of how I masked and stenciled
(sorry they are dark, taken on my craft table, the paper is actually white!).
First I cut a white panel, laid it on my craft mat and covered the edges
(1/2 the depth of the painters tape) on all 4 sides (be sure to rub the tape on your pants or shirt to take a lot of the stick off it or it will tear your paper when you take it off)
Then I laid the stencil over it
and then I sponged over the stencil with Ranger Distress Antique Linen.
And ended up with this lovely panel for my background!
The beautiful birch wood on the die cut oval is actually wrapping paper I found at Pier 1 this week - it is just gorgeous and has lovely texture to it. I embossed the sentiment in gold and layered all the die cuts on foam dots.
So please join us and link up your CAS Mix up cards here! You have until Dec 24th! I'm sure you need at least ONE MORE Christmas card right??!!
