Hello once again. Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge has started their challenge for February. The theme this month is ‘inky’ – in a CAS style. Here is my card:
I knew I wanted to create an ink smooshed background – but how to keep it CAS? I decided to use two colours of Distress Inks, and smooshed them onto my craft met. I took a piece of water-colour card, added some water to one corner of it, and dropped in the two colours – drying between each colour. One of the layers must have been slightly wet still, so it created an almost orange or peach colour where they blended – which I quite like.
I then splattered those same two colours onto the piece of card.
Whilst that was drying, I stamped the images from the Time For Tea Designs stamp set, and coloured them with Copics, trying to find colours which were very similar – and throwing in a green one there for a different pop of colour.
After stamping the sentiment, I die cut them with the matching dies, and then decided which part of the inky background I wanted to use, and where, to keep things CAS.
I used a Catherine Pooler die set which I’ve had for ages, and cut the panel quite a bit smaller, then added the bear – some of him off the panel using foam pads, and some directly onto the panel with glue – the same with the sentiment.
The last thing to do was add some white gel pen for detail – which I tend to go over-board with but I believe I restrained myself here. I hope you can come and join us with your CAS ‘Inky’ creations. xx
