CAS Mix Up August Reminder Post

Time for the reminder post for the CAS Mix Up Challenge,

which is Stencil Monoprinting....

Hosted by the talented and very creative Nancy.......

Fabulous inspiration awaits you in the gallery and
from the wonderful design team.
Our talented guest designer this month is Cathy from Cathy's Card Spot.
If you've time, pop across and take a look.....

This is my card......

I have used stencil Monoprinting, stamping and my choice is heat embossing and doodling.
I popped on two shades of Lindy pink magical powders onto the stencil and sprayed with water.
I then quickly flipped it over onto the watercolour card and pressed it down.....
Letting the powders do their magic.

After it had all dried I stamped and heat embossed one of the butterflies in white.
Then doodled in black and white inks around the butterflies
Finishing with stamping and heat embossing the sentiment and the edge on the left in black.
I decanted some of the blue Lindy spray into a water colour brush 
and lightly water coloured the background.

This is such a fun and unique technique often producing artsy backgrounds.
I am looking forward to seeing your creations in the gallery.
Thank you so much for stopping by....

Wonderful You....

I have been having fun with a stencil and Lindy Powders.....
This is my card.....
I sprinkled Lindy magicals over the stencil and lightly sprayed with water,
popping off the stencil quickly to avoid seepage....
When it was dry I popped the stencil back on and blended the stems in green ink.
I tried several times to use the powders for the stems but the seepage was horrendous!
I finished off with die cutting the sentiment, the squares and the flower bud.
AAA Card challenge and Uniko are friendship which helped me choose the sentiment.
Thank you for stopping by.

Challenges I would love to enter.....
Uniko - It's so much more friendly with two and I have gone with the 'Friend' theme ...

CAS Mix Up August Challenge

The CAS Mix Up Challenge for August is 

Stencil Monoprint.....

Hosted by the wonderfully talented Nancy.....

The design team and our fabulous guest designer Cathy from Cathy's Card Spot
have wonderful inspiration for you over on the blog.
There are video's links too, to inspire you further......

This is my card....

I have used Brusho's with the stencil, stamping and my choice is heat embossing
I sprinkled different shades of Brusho's through the stencil 
and sprayed with water to activate them.
The sentiment and the grasses have been stamped with grey archival ink.
The butterfly has been heat embossed with white 
and the rectangle layer edged with gold heat embossing.

I flipped the stencil over, whilst it was still wet and this is my other card....
Not CAS but artsy and it's great to get two cards from the one technique.
 The sentiment was stamped in black first and then gold heat embossed on top,
which produces a subtle effect, so much so it looks very dark in the photo!
The Monoprint challenge is a fun one, which produces unique effects.
Pop across and admire the fabulous cards from the design team and the wonderful Cathy.

I am looking forward to seeing your wonderful creativity in the gallery.
Thank you so much for popping in...And I'm Loving my background Loll xxx
