Hello friends. This month's challenge over at CAS Mix Up
is all about using either CORK, CANVAS, or FELT on your card.
I used CORK...take a look:
I used the leaf die from PTI's Songbirds
to die cut my leaf branch from a piece of cork, and then placed it on a piece of Linen cardstock that I sponged a bit with Tempting Turquoise ink. I did not have any canvas, so I used the Linen cardstock to add a bit of texture like the canvas would have. Here's a closer up view:
Still a little hard to see, but it's there and IRL it looks really nice! For my bird I used the Faux Enamel Technique
using chipboard and embossing powder....LOTS OF FUN!! I used PTI's Brushed Birds
dies to cut my bird shape out of chipboard and then used OLD
SU! embossing powders in Tempting Turquoise, Gumball Green, and white. My sentiment is from PTI's Keep It Simple: Thinking Of You
So for this card I used: Cork, die cutting, embossing, ink blending, & stamping. Quite a few elements for such a CAS card but I love the way it turned out!!
Still lots of time to play along with this challenge (ends the 24th), so check out all the beautiful examples from the DT and in the gallery, and then play along! You can find all the info you need to play right HERE
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
