Hi everyone. Just a reminder of the current Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - Sprays / Mists.
Today I'm sharing the birthday card I made for my youngest son, Jeremy. We share a love of art and I knew he'd love this artsy background ... and he did! :)
For my card today, I used the Stencil Monoprint technique. I used distress inks for the background, tapping them onto the back of my stencil, misting with water and then placing it over my mixed media card front. The excess moisture was then blotted up with a paper towel. Once dry, I simply stamped the branches in Pine Needles distress ink.
I really love this technique! It works well with spray inks as well. :)
We have lots of fantastic entries in the HLS June CAS Challenge so far. I hope you'll join us. Remember, you don't have to have ink sprays to play along ... just pull out a water mister and join in the fun!! :)
The challenge is open until the end of the month, so there's still lots of time left to enter. Hope to see you in the gallery!! :)
