CAS Mix Up April Reminder Post

Time for the reminder post for The CAS Mix Up April Challenge,
which is The Rubber Band Technique, Stamping and Your choice....

This is my card......

I have used the Rubber Band Technique, stamping and my choice is heat embossing, 
water colouring and die cutting.

I am having so much fun trying out this new to me technique.
I started with Magical Powders and spraying water to activate them, in shades of pink.
The black tiny script has been lightly stamped in black archival.
I used two acrylic blocks with different thicknesses of rubber bands and stamped randomly 
over the water coloured background, using Versa-Mark.
I then used silver embossing powder and heat set.
The four squares have been edged with black heat embossing and raised up onto foam.
Finishing off with the die cut sentiment that has been layered with silver and black.

Hope you will join us with this fun technique, 
which I think makes unique and creative backgrounds.
There is lots of inspiration over on the blog from the talented Design Team 
and our wonderful guest designer, Hideko, The Paper Craft Boutique
There are video links too....

Pop across to The CAS Mix Up Challenge to see wonderful inspiration from the rest of the team 
and Hideko, The Paper Craft Boutique, who is our amazing guest this month.

This is my card.....

I have used the Rubber Band Technique, Stamping and my choices are
embossing paste, stencil and die cutting.

This new to me technique was so much fun....
I wrapped a thin elastic band around an acrylic block, stamped randomly 
with versa-mark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I used several shades of grey ink and blended them, with a brush, over the white embossing.
The flower is a masked stencil, which I popped silver embossing paste through.
The sentiment has been die cut twice and I finished off with white acrylic splats.
If you have never tried this technique why not give it a go.
It produces some unique effects and you'll have fun trying.
Thank you Julia for this new to me technique, which I have loved.
