Two Quick CAS cards

Joining in some of the CAS challenges
this one is for CAS Waterolour Challenge cool colours.
My background is photographic paper with distress oxide ink spritzed on a craft mat and picked up. The die is a Memory box deer frame die and the sentiment is from Magenta.


My second card is for CAS Christmas, for this I used Versamark on a stencil and sookwang tape. The Versamark stops the stencil sticking to the sookwan, my first attempt was a bit of a disaster the stencil stuck and on removing it I tore the paper luckily not my stencil. I switched to using a Versamark dauber for this one.
When my stencil was in place I added red glitter and burnished it in place. I removed the stencil and added clear glitter. Because the red was put down first in the open areas of the stencil the clear picked up some of the red in the background. I then die cut the tag and added I added a strip of red foil paper to cover a scoring oopsy 😏 . The stencil and sentiment are from Magenta.

  7. Two beautiful and arsty Christmas cards Christine. Love the sky on your first card. It's amazing how the colour was picked up by the photographic paper. Your glitter tag card is gorgeous.

  11. Two great cards, Christine. I love the tag and just tried that technique with gilding flakes and it worked too. The poinsettia looks beautiful with all the sparkle on the tag. The smooshed DOX made a stunning background for the deer.
