Cling Wrap Get Well!

Another Cling Wrap card using a background from my stash.
I am loving this technique and adding to CAS Mix Up Cling Wrap Challenge.
Challenge Ends on the 24th.

Here is my Get Well card for a special friend recovering from surgery.

Cling Wrap + Stamping + Die Cuts and Stenciling.

I used Brushos: Turquoise and Bisters: Blue Black pigment powders for the cling wrap background, which I chose from my cling wrap stash:-)

My Cling Wrap Technique!
I spritzed my Strathmore Bristol paper with water then sprinkled Brushos onto paper and spritzed again liberally with water, 
tipping the paper to get the wet ink to run and blend.

Then placed a Cling Wrap piece (larger than paper) over the wet Brushos and
scrunched the wrap, which moves the inks and adds lines.  Tucked excess wrap under piece and set aside to dry.  Be patient..can take several hours or overnight to dry.

Back to my card:-)
 I die cut my cling wrap background birds using CUTplorations "For the Birds" Die and attached to my Strathmore Bristol card front.  

Then placed my T.H. "Stripes" Stencil over the birds 
and used my Clarity Brush to swipe SU Lost Lagoon ink thru the stencil.
It gave a nice soft background for the pretty cling wrap birds.

I placed card front in my MISTI and stamped the cute STAMPlorations Birds of  Paradise sentiment
designed by Shirley of The Bee's Knees:-)

  I Love these pretty artsy birds:-) I think my friend will too. 

Enjoy and Hugs.

  1. I just happened to be sitting here when your post popped into my email. I have to say I love how those birds look cut from the cling wrap background. Colors are beautiful and coordinate perfectly with the stenciled background. Love the sentiment with it, too. Such a great CAS card, Nancy!

  2. Love how you've used the unique technique on those die cut birds. Great colours of Brusho's. The stencilled background sets off those fabulous birds perfectly x

  3. Great use of the cling wrap technique on those birds Nancy, and I love the soft stencilled background, perfect, Cathy x

  4. Love the look of that die cut using your cling wrap technique. Your stenciling in the background is so perfect for this- adding color but not distracting from your focal. This is such a fabulous get well card, Nancy. I'm sure your friend will cherish it.

  5. I love these pretty birds and the soft stripes, Nancy! A perfect sentiment!

  8. Wow, I LOVE this card, Nancy! The Turquois & Blue Black gracefully show their best from the lightest to the darkest. The bird die-cut is perfect for showcasing your AWESOME cling wrap background! And what makes the card look so special is the beautifully stenciled strip background - the color (Lost Lagoon) and the stenciled portion/area are just perfect! Your friend will sure love this card! Hugs.. Hideko
