STAMPlortions August CAS Anything Goes Challenge
I am entering my card into the STAMPlortions August CAS Anything Goes Challenge. Not adding the Twist (Gold) this month. I could not find my Gold sequins...I looked high and low!
Also entering in STAMPlorations Never Ending Anything Goes. I used CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies, STAMPlorations Fond Expressions2 by Shery and Winged Things by Shirley of Bees Knees :-)
I made my background using the Floating Alcohol Ink Technique. I am sharing a video using the technique. I did mine a bit differently. I added just Adirondack Lemonade AI drops to water and placed my Yupo paper into water. Removed let dry and then did the same thing adding Sunset Orange AI drops to clean water. When I pulled it out there were little bubbles. I popped with my fingers and the yellow showed up as droplets all over the piece...really cool effect!
I then die cut the piece with my CUTplorations thinlit. Using my MISTI I Stamped Shirley's "Winged Things" Dragonflies using Archival jet black ink (must use Archival on AI). Making sure dry by blotting carefully and then added my Fond Expressions 2 sentiment by Shery using same technique.
I popped up my main image on Die Cut SU Whisper White Thick Cardstock. Added Lily White sequins by Doodle Bug after searching for gold sequins. My room was neater after my search :-)
Thank You for visiting my blog and especially for your very appreciated comments. Hugs!
