CAS Wild Thing - A Quick Mixed Media Card

Hi Friends! 

I hope all of you are having a wonderful week so far!! I am having fun creating Clean and Simple (CAS) Mixed Media cards this week and designed this card using  LeAnne's PP295 “CAS Wild Thing” Challenge at The Paper Players as well as the Splitcoaststampers’ CC583 Color Challenge and the Freshly Made  Sketches FMS237 Sketch Challenge.

This card shows a few combination of colors that you can achieve with using just three colors.  Even though two of the colors in the challenge are on the bright side, I love the orange and purple that resulted from the blending :-)

If you have not already visited the above sites, I hope you will find the time to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Using Sponge Daubers, apply So Saffron Classic Ink to the top of a piece of Whisper White cardstock, then apply Melon Mambo Classic Ink to the center (blending with the So Saffron) and Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink at the bottom (blending with the Melon Mambo).

Trim the panel and stamp the Landscape Silhouettes image and the sentiment from Faith (both Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps) using My Favorite Things (MFT) Steel Grey Ink.

Ink the image from Landscape Silhouettes with MFT Steel Grey Ink and stamp onto a piece of acetate (I used a clear envelope), then press the acetate in position below the stamped image on the panel to create the shadows.

Darken any areas necessary with a Faber-Castell® Black Pitt Pen Marker.

Blend the ink (before it dries) a bit with an AquaPainter™ and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Apply Clear Wink of Stella® over the water area, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.

Trim the panel once more and mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base to finish off the card.

That's it- another quick and easy card!
