CAS Mixed Media- Landscape Silhouettes Sympathy

Hi Sweet Friends!

This evening I am sharing a Clean and Simple (CAS) card that I designed using the  Landscape Silhouettes and Tender Thoughts stamp sets from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps for the AAA Cards #111 "Use Only One Third" Challenge and the Retro Rubber #83 “Anything Goes” Challenge.

I have owned both stamp sets for several years and they are so versatile for many occasions. I love the silhouette images and while I had Landscape Silhouettes out, I created four additional cards that I will share in the next day or so :-)

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge galleries yet or the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog/FB page, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Tap a few colors of Distress Oxide onto a silicone mat (see below for the colors I used), lightly spray with water and press a piece of watercolor paper 4 ¼” x 5 ½”.   Lift up and continue to re-apply ink until you are satisfied with the background.

2). De-static the panel with an embossing powder tool, ink the image from Landscape Silhouettes with archival black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Trim the panel and mount onto black cardstock.

3). De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool (in the area for the sentiment), ink the sentiment from Tender Thoughts with archival black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of black cardstock, trim again and mount onto the white card base.

4). Mount the main panel onto the card front with dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Ink: Versafine™ Onyx Black, Tim Holtz® Distress Oxide- Twisted Citron, Broken China, Picked Raspberry

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black

Accessories: Embossing Buddy®, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by!!  I am planning on sharing a few more CAS cards featuring easy backgrounds this weekend- hopefully you will be able to visit again soon!  Hugs and I hope you have a wonderful weekend reflecting on Christ's sacrifice and Resurrection- Alleluia, what a Savior!!

This is a stunning creation, Julie. I do love your distressed background and it's a perfect contrast for the landscape silhouette. Thank you for sharing with us at Retro Rubber Challenge.

Wow, lovely job with a difficult card to make. The silhouette stamp is wonderful, I may have to go shopping! I also must add you must live a in dry area like I do as the static tool is a go to for me as well before embossing! Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber for AG!
