CAS MIX UP August Challenge
It is time already for the next CAS Mix Up August Challenge Stamping + Sprays + Your Choice. My Choice: Stenciling with water and Modeling Paste, Markers and Die Cuts.
My card began with an ATC background I had in my background stash, which I had used a swiping technique with Zig Marker brown tones onto Mixed Media paper and stamped with my Tim Holtz "Wild Flowers" stamp set using Archival Jet Black ink.
Now the fun finishing touches. I placed my Tim Holtz "Faded Dots" stencil over my piece, "Sprayed" with water and blotted with a paper towel to lift the color. I Die Cut my ATC with my Memory Box Stitched Rectangle and added a Sizzix Die Cut Wildflower for added dimension.
I wanted more interest in the background so I masked the center of my die cut white layer and placed my Faded Dot Stencil over the mask and covered areas of the stencil with my Golden's Modeling Paste. Let dry and added my main image with dimensionals. One last touch.. Washi tape stamped with the sentiment.. just for you!
I love the brown tones and dimension on my CAS Mix Up August Challenge...Hope you can play along too. You have until August 24th to join in the fun! Happy Stamping....
