It's time for a new challenge at CAS Mix Up
Using stamp inked with Distress markers, regular stamping, die cutting and stenciling with embossing paste
This month I'm the host
One of my favorite techniques is to ink my stamps with markers. With all the stamp positioning tools available, this is easier than ever. You can add one color ink to one section, stamp and ink up another section with a different color. It's the perfect technique for flowers, birds and butterflies, but
don't limit yourself to them. I can't wait to see your mini masterpieces!
This card was so quick!
This sweet little Unity stamp was in my NBUS box.
I put it in my MISTI, got out some Distress Markers,colored the stems and lines
with a brown marker and stamped on Neenah card stock.
I could see spots I missed so added ink in those spots, stamped and moved
on to the flowers choosing colors for each one.
For each of the flowers, I inked with the lighter color then "thumped"
with the darker color.
My friend and fellow CASsette, Joanna always inspires me with her
unique CAS Mixed Media style and I love how she adds frames to some of her cards.
So I've CASEd her.
So I cut down the other part of the die cut to make a frame, (this die is cuts an
inside-outside piece) and added it at an angled it behind the design.
I used my favorite stencil and some embossing past for texture.
Check out the fabulous designs by the Design Team joined by our
Guest Designer Chrissie (Simpy One of a Kind).
We have some video tutorials at the challenge site to give you more ideas.
I'm looking forward to seeing your cards made by inking up some stamps with markers.
Hope to see you at CAS Mix Up!
