CAS Mix Up August Challenge

Hi there everyone.  I thought I would get my entry in early this month for the CAS Mix Up August Challenge, and I needed an anniversary card so made the card with the challenge in mind.  This month we have to include Stencil Monoprinting + Stamping + Our Choice, so here it is.  I used a Chocolate Baroque set called Fluttering Hearts, and the third heart flower is separate from the other two when cut out.


I chose a stencil by Sweet Dixie called Fern Flourish and inked up the stencil itself with three Distress Inks in Twisted Citron, Carved Pumpkin and Mermaid Lagoon, rubbing the inks randomly over it from the pads.  I then spritzed it (make sure you spritz until it beads...ask me how I know..lol) and then placed it face down on a snippet of Chocolate Baroque Drawing Cartridge paper allowing ten to twenty seconds before lifting it off, and at this point  I usually get a piece of kitchen towel and rub that over which gets rid of any excess liquid before lifting it.

I continued by stamping the Chocolate Baroque image on to another snippet of white card using Versafine Smokey Gray Ink and then coloured it with my Wink of Stella Pen by laying down the same three Distress Inks on to my glass mat as I used for the background, and used my WOS Pen to paint the image, which gives it a wonderful sparkle, and then fussy cut it out.  It is one image but when stamped and cut out one of the heart flowers is separate.

I finished by die cutting a white square stitched mat with another snippet of white card, using a set from The Works and layered my stencil monoprint on to it and adhered this to a white 6" square base card.  I added the cut out images and gave them some dimension with Pinflair Glue Gel.  I then stamped a sentiment on to a snippet of black card using Versamark Ink, and heat embossed with WOW Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder, and cut it into a banner shape and glued it with some of the Pinflair Glue Gel.

Thank you for visiting today and hope your week is going well.  I for one am pleased that temperatures have dropped back to a more comfortable level, but let's hope that the fine weather has not left us entirely.
