Evening all, time for a new challenge at Perfectly CAS.
Here's my take on the new cue word, inspired by the challenge at CAS Mix Up.
There are obviously two ways to emboss, dry and heat, I chose the heat route and a new to me technique called faux batik. My friend Loll introduced me to the technique, thank you it was fun to do!
To start, I added DI ink in Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed to some MM paper, not paying much attention to the blending. I used the stamp I wanted to use as a guide as to where to place the colours, then stamped the flower stamp of the Uniko BB Doodle Flower set with Versamark and heat embossed using clear EP. Before I added the leaf stamp, I added some Salty Ocean DI where the leaves would be and repeated the embossing with the leaf stamp. Once I had completed that part, I started to distress the panel by folding the paper. This cracks the embossing as well as the paper to leave lines in the design which when coloured with more ink show up. For this layer I chose to use Chipped Sapphire. All excess ink was rubbed off with a soft cloth before I trimmed the panel down and mounting it on a panel of gold card. The sentiment from Uniko's Pure Florals-Cosmos, was stamped on a scrap of blue card to match the base card and heat embossed with white EP.
The finished panel was attached to the blue base card with foam pads. I had firstly added it to an A6 note card but on second looks, I decided it was not CAS enough, so simply upped the size to a 5 x 7inch and the CASness was just right!
So how will you interpret the cue card, we'd love to see your takes in the gallery this month.
As always there is plenty of inspiration from the rest of the team over at Perfectly CAS!
