Friends are the Sunshine of Life
CAS Mix Up card - using the Rubber Band Technique was also appropriate for the CAS Watercolour April challenge - Bird theme.....which must be a thing at the moment as we've just erected a bird bath in the back garden. For my background I used a yellow alcohol ink coloured panel and with rubber bands around my acrylic blocks I stamped in Versamark and embossed with Pearl Gold... I twisted the block and got sort stuttery lines... I like the effect, so I took a photo incase I covered it all up. Then I stamped my bird in brown ink and used Distress Oxides to water colour the image and fussy cut it out. The yellow panel was too stark against the white card so I added a green strip to help bring out the colours in the bird. I die cut a branch, then stamped and embossed my sentiment. My elements for CAS Mix Up - rubber band stamping, stamping, heat embossing, fussy cutting, die cuts and water colouring. Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day.
