CAS Mix Up October Reminder Card
CAS Mix Up Ghosting Reminder Cards by the talented Design Team and Guest to Inspire you!
I used Stamping + Stencil Ghosting + my choice..sponging, stencil tracing and monoprint stenciling
I had fun using 3 ARTplorations Stencils: Retro Circles, Bubbles and Christmas Trees. I sponged the Retro Circles onto Strathmore Mixed Media paper using SU Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim then flipped the stencil over onto Mixed Media paper, covered with paper towel and rubbed the ink onto paper for the Monoprint background layer image. Hate to waste all that good ink from the sponging!
I fussy cut my sponged tree, covered with the Retro Circle Stencil, sprayed with water and dabbed with paper towel to lift the color, which gave a Ghosting effect. My piece needed more, so I placed my Bubbles Stencil over the tree and traced with my art pen. Now I liked it :-) Added my STAMPlorations "Oh, Christmas Tree" sentiment and done.
So happy to have another Christmas card for my stash...even if it is Ghosting Month !
Hope you can join us at CAS Mix Up this month. You still have until October 24th to play along.
My card is also for STAMPlorations Never Ending Anything Goes Challenge.
Thank you for visiting and especially for your much appreciated comments. Hugs.....
