Enjoying a much cooler, overcast day today with even a light shower which is nice, so hoping it's a lovely day wherever you are in this crazy world....
Saturday I was checking out a few blogs and stopped by my friend Loll's blog where she was sharing her gesso resist card and the next thing you know I'm searching for the gesso and off I go - forgot to even leave her a comment....
I did a few experiments stamping with the gesso and then blending Distress Oxide over the dry gesso... here I used Squeezed lemonade and Twisted citron... then I trimmed the panel, layered it with a white border and larger lime green frame. I die cut the dandelion and some grass - attached them in place and finished with a stamped sentiment (using the Citron DO) and clear embossed it.
CAS Mix Up elements - gesso resist, ink blending, die cuts, heat embossing, stamping
The second attempt, well it didn't really work at all - the stamping got completely lost... but on reading Cathy's post I was determined to not bin it, then I also decided to not make any new elements and found all these in my stash...
Crazy bird already coloured but missing a foot, flower - coloured and fussy cut, two colourful sprigs, some black die cut leafy swirls, a black die cut circle and to finish the sentiment already die cut too.... whopppie - a fun card for a change.
I am playing along with CAS Mix Up May challenge - Gesso Resist .... AND ..... Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge #378.
Thanks for stopping by my blog --- have a Happy Day and stay safe.
