CAS Mix Up October reminder post

Time for the reminder post at The CAS Mix Up this month.

This Months Challenge is technique based and is Metal.....

Metal can be Real or Faux.......
or even a Metal looking technique.....
You are only limited by your imagination.

Have fun and I am so looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations in the gallery.

There are video links over on the blog too, to inspire you further....
Along with the amazingly creative DT and our wonderful guest designer Pat 

This is my card..... 

I have used Stamping, Wrap Technique, Stencilling, and Heat embossing
The Wrap Technique has been used with Brusho's and water
and produced a metal looking background. 
I used a stencil and some crackle paste, through a leaf stencil for texture.
The die cut Leaf sprig has been heat embossed several times with silver.
The little die cut heart has been layered and embossed with frantage powders.
Finishing off with die cutting the background and adding a black strip 
and stamped sentiment at the bottom.
The edges of the background have also been heat embossed with silver.
The detail photo shows the wonderful effect from the wrap technique 
and the texture from the crackle paste and stencil. 

Lots of Faux Metal on this card and I had so much fun making it.
Looking forward to your creations and wonderful creativity in the gallery....
Have Fun.....

Just Keep Going.....

I had an idea and I just kept going.....

A Box of Eggs .......a Colour Challenge.....
Here is my Creation....
I made the three little eggs from clay and Splattered them and covered them with gloss glaze......
The background has been made with quite a few of the chalk acrylic paints, 
swirled and made to look like marble.....
I have stencilled the flowers with white snowflake paint and splattered in toffee...

In the spirit of honesty I have included this photo to say......
Keep on going as I was really not sure at this stage.....
Happily I was really pleased when I finished it.....
Mixing the medias to me is to keep going until I finish,
as it is the sum of all the elements....And then see if I like it......
I loved getting all messy and as always learnt lots along the way....
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Copper Metal Flowers....

Had fun this past week playing with Frantage and Lindy Magical Powders....
This is My Card....

I sprinkled Lindy Magical powders through a stencil and activated them with water.
I used Creme Brulee, Dark Chocolate Truffle and Sandra Dee Sepia.
The first two have the shimmer in them and if you are looking for a light, 
cream like colour then the Brulee is fabulous. 
The Sepia is a flat colour with no shine. 
The die cut flowers and leaf have been embossed with Frantage Aged Copper
embossing enamel to give a Faux Metal appearance.
Depending how long you heat them you can get a 
 molten effect or  bumps, more textural look.
I did both this time.

I finished off with stamping the sentiment in brown.
You can get a real super shine from the Frantage and the Lindy Powders.

The CAS Mix Up Challenge is on until the 24th so I shall be popping my card
into the challenge for fun....My choice is Stencil, die cutting and heat embossing.
I shall be popping my card into CAS on Friday Challenge, which is to make a CAS Thank You Card
Take It Make It Challenge - Anything goes and to include a stamp
Stamplorations - CAS without the optional colour twist.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

CAS Mix Up October Challenge

I am excited to be hosting my first Challenge 

at The CAS Mix Up this month.
This Months Challenge is technique based and is Metal.....

Metal can be Real or Faux.......
or even a Metal looking technique.....
You are only limited by your imagination.

Have fun and I am so looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations in the gallery.

There are video links over on the blog too, to inspire you further....
Along with the amazingly creative DT and our wonderful guest designer Pat 

This is my card..... 

I have used Stamping, Tin Foil, real leafs and Heat Embossing as my choice.
I have used three leafs from the garden, that had good veining on them 
and stuck them to canvas paper for added texture.
The tin foil was then glued down on top and two colours of acrylic paint lightly painted on top.
Once this was dry I lightly rubbed back some of the acrylic paint to expose the leafs, 
the veins and the texture from the canvas paper.
The foliage has been stamped in green and the tops heat embossed in silver on the card stock.
I ran a silver pen around the edges of the small squares and popped them up onto foam.
Finishing off with stamping the sentiment in green.

I remember doing this technique in my school days and had fun then too x.
So looking forward to seeing your creations in the gallery.
Have fun.......x
