CAS Mix Up Jan. 2018 - Cling Wrap Technique

Hello friends.  This month's challenge over at CAS Mix Up is a technique challenge using CLING WRAP!


This is a FUN and MESSY technique and one that I've learned a few things over the process of many, many tries!  Darker colors leave more pronounced lines, use LOTS of water, and most importantly, let your piece TOTALLY DRY BEFORE REMOVING THE CLING WRAP!!  Can you tell I'm one of those who doesn't have a lot of patience?!  I just get so excited to see the final result that it's hard to wait!!  But anyway, after many trials, I came up with two cards I thought were worthy of sharing!


  
This card used Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans distress inks and just a smidge of Cobalt Blue Brusho's for my background.  The snowflake frame was die cut from an AliExpress die and my sentiment is from PTI's Think Big Favorites #21.


My twofer card uses Cobalt Blue and Sea Green Brusho's for the background, and once again, another AliExpress die for the tree line.  My sentiment is also another PTI from the Botanical Blocks IV set.

For both cards I used Cling Wrap, Die Cutting, and Stamping.

LOTS of absolutely GORGEOUS creations from the DT and in the gallery already this month, so if you need any inspiration, you can check it all out right HERE.  This challenge is open until the 24th.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  4. Both cards are GORGEOUS Marcia!! LOVE the colours of the backgrounds and your beautiful, white die-cuts. I have the tree one and am ashamed to say haven't used it yet ... got it WAY before Christmas! LOVE the snowflake panel. Hope I can find that on AE and get one for myself. The bright turquoise colours in the background are so beautiful. If you had stamped your sentiment in red, you could have used it for MM. :) Great work with the cling wrap technique! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!
