Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
There's still time to join in at CAS Mix Up.
Hilary is hosting the challenge and she's asking for us to use Gesso with a stencil
on our CAS cards.
I used a Time Holtz stencil and applied Gesso through it onto a piece of
heavy black cardstock.
It's best to use a light hand with the Gesso and build it up slowly.
Unfortunately I didn't realize that at the time and had some oozing under
the stencil that made for a messy look.
While doing this during a Zoom session, Christine suggested using a
black marker to "clean it up". It worked really well!
I decided to leave this white instead of coloring over the Gesso and went
for sparkle instead.
I replaced the stencil and sponged some glue over the petals, removed the stencil,
then sprinkled some white glitter over top. I replaced the stencil and daubed some glue
over the center, removed the stencil and sprinkled gold glitter.
The sentiment has been stamped and heat embossed.
I'm still finding glitter in the studio!
Check out what the rest of the Design team has done and
I hope you'll join us at CAS Mix Up.
