CAS "Smoosh" Card- Fear Not
I had a chance to create another card last night and decided to pull out a few sets that I have not had a chance to ink up in a while- Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Basics, Awesomely Artistic and Rose Wonder (all three sets are over a year old :-)).
I incorporated the Fab Friday #114 Color Challenge along with the Happy LittleStampers June 2017 CAS “Smoosh” Challenge and the Retro Rubber #64 "Anything Goes" Challenge into the design.
If you have not already had a chance to visit the above challenge sites, I hope you will do so- they both have wonderful Design Teams and fabulous challenge entries.
To create this card:
1). Ink the floral image from Butterfly Basics with archival black ink, stamp onto white cardstock, heat set with a heat tool and watercolor using an AquaPainter™ along with ink from the Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide Classic Ink Pads. Use the Stampin’ Write Markers to add more color and definition and once the flower has dried, fussy-cut and set aside.
2). On a clear acetate envelope, tap a bit of Powder Pink and Berry Burst Classic Ink, spritz lightly with water, smoosh the ink around and lay a piece of white cardstock into the ink. Dry with the Heat Tool, add a bit of splatter with the splatter image from Awesomely Artistic stamp set with Berry Burst Classic Ink. Apply Picket Fence Distress Stain over some of the “smooshed” areas to tone down the ink, dry again before trimming.
3). Ink the verse sentiment from Rose Wonder with Fresh Fig Classic Ink, stamp onto the panel and mount onto a piece of Berry Burst cardstock.
4). Mount the flower using dimensional foam, use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the petals and an extra fine white paint pen for highlights in the center of the flower.
5). Add the droplets using Rosewater Nuvo Crystal Jewel Drops to finish off the card.
