Hello. I have a CAS card to share today:
I always find this style of card seems to take a lot more planning than other cards. I thought about what colours to use for the ink blended panel – and then how to do it……..some broad masking tape did the trick.
I used Pinkfresh studio inks – darker orange, lighter orange, and yellow. These do blend wonderfully, and as I used some Distress Heavyweight card stock – a match made in heaven!
I have quite a bit of the older batch of heavyweight card stock from Ranger – this was a batch which had some coating issues – it does not like water – which is bizarre as this is what the card stock is meant to work very well with.
I first noticed when doing a virtual class with Jenn Shurkhus – she advised us to contact Ranger….I did, sent them some photos, and the picture of the receipt – and a new batch was sent to me – over here to the UK – what a brilliant customer service.
However – the new batch from them has the same issue – but I have decided to use that for ink blending – when I don’t want to use a lot of water – it does ink blend beautifully.
Anyhoo – back to the card – ink blended panel, and then an image from a Simon Says Stamp set ‘Dandelion Messages’ which has been sitting there wanting to be used……..I thought it was perfect for a couple of challenges:
The Flower Challenge – Flowers and CAS
