Hi everyone. I've had a lot of time to play in the studio this week. I hope you're not getting tired of seeing my posts! :)
I have made a few cards lately with acetate smooshing. LOVE this technique that I saw in a video by Laura Bassen. It's basically smooshing with a bit of control. And I do love to be in control. :)
I decided to see if I could acetate smoosh with inka gold ... and I could! :) I'm happy with how this turned out. This is done on mixed media paper, which I think looks the best, but it also works on regular card stock.
I have had this umbrella die for YEARS ... and I'm pretty sure it's the first time it's made it onto a card. So I'm heading over to Darnell's NBUS Challenge #6. And since there's a spring-themed challenge at Time Out, I'm heading there as well. Plus I used a snippet of smooshed background and silver card stock for the umbrella, so going to play at the Snippets Playground.
This is another example of a CAS Mix Up card that fits the March challenge - Watercolouring. I used stamping, Inka Gold acetate smooshing and Inka Gold smooshing (umbrella); plus heat embossing (sentiment). A lot going on in this little card that is very CAS. :) Hope you'll join us! :)
