CAS Mix Up Challenge

Hi everyone.  I decided to get in early for the CAS Mix Up Challenge this time.  The theme is stamping through a stencil and I used a Dutch Doobadoo Blocks stencil and a very old Hunkydory set of stamps with a wedding/anniversary theme and I used the rose heart stamp.


I lightly brushed the ink blended through the stencil using Tattered Rose and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks and  more of the pink in the centre and then the lilac on the outer edges fading it out, and keeping the stencil in place I transferred it to my Misti and stamped the rose heart with Dusty Concord DI, several times and with firm pressure to get a good impression, as obviously it is more difficult stamping through the mylar stencil.   I then coloured the stamping with my Inktense Pencils and a waterbrush following the image from the packing as there are only bits of it showing through the stencilled shapes.  I wasn't quite happy with it as it was so decided to use the a heart die to give it a heart shape and marked around the inside of it with a pencil just within the open areas of the stencil, and then inked over it with a black micron pen.  

To finish I cut it with a stitched square die and added some Salty Ocean DI over the white lines within the heart shape and also around the edges, again using a brush, and then added the sentiment with Versafine Deep Lagoon ink before adhering it to my 6" square white card. 

The challenge runs until the 24th of the month so lots of time to join in.  Thank you for coming to visit today and I hope to see you again soon.

  2. It's certainly a different theme Pat and can be quite tricky stamping through a stencil dependent on it's thickness as you often lost some of the edges, but you did a great job here and achieved a very effective card.

    Lovely to see you at Stamping Sensations Celebrations theme, thank you so much for joining in.

  13. Ultimately your card turned out fantastic! I like how you defined the stamped area with your heart shape, giving it a dimensional look without actually adding more dimension to it. Perfect for the anniversary theme. It's lovely to see your card in our gallery at CAS Mix Up!

  14. Loved how your stamping thru your stencil turned out Pat. Adding the heart tracing thru the stencil was a brilliant idea for bringing your stamped images together. Loved how you traced your stamped image with a black art pen to make them pop, too. So pleased you joined us at CAS Mix Up, my friend. Love and Hugs...Nancy
