MIX65 Crazy Mixed Up World
Hi Again Stampers!
I am having so much fun with the Splitcoaststampers MIX65 Challenge- Back to Kindergarten (using crayons) and decided to use the crayon rubbed embossing technique on this card as well as creating another card with the CMCC#17 Colour Me! Challenge colors.
I hope you will have the time to check out the gallery at both sites- again, so much talent and inspiration!!
To create this card:
Using the crayon rubbed embossing technique (here is the link to the forum and the technique videos), open the Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and place a piece of Whisper White cardstock on top of the raised portion of the folder. Rub the White Crayon over the cardstock (press firmly) and use a brayer to apply Coastal Cabana Classic Ink.
Use a paper towel to rub the ink off the crayon areas, use a Sponge Dauber first with Bermuda Bay Classic Ink, then again with Pacific Point Classic Ink and finally with Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink.
Mask the areas using either scrap paper or sticky notes and using The Open Sea, stamp the images randomly in different areas (a modified retriform/grid technique) with Basic Gray Classic Ink. Rub off the excess ink with a dry paper towel.
Use a 1 ¼” Square Punch to punch out the panel, rearrange the squares into the desired pattern and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
When choosing the sentiment, I already had this one previously printed from My Digital Studio and thought it would be perfect since the images were re-arranged in a random pattern and showcased the mixed up “world” :-)
Add the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon bow to the edge of the sentiment and mount the entire panel onto the Whisper White card base.
