Get Well Soon!


Hello friends!

 Today I have a real CAS card I created for a couple challenges on SCS.  One was a CAS one layer card on which you used masking, and one was to ink your stamps with tissues!  I had never done that before so I gave it a try and I really love the result! I used T Holtz Distress Inks in Bundled Sage, Forest Moss and Dusty Concord, and used crumpled up tissues to apply the inks to my North Coast Creations stamps, going from light to dark.  I first stamped the image from Find Beauty, then I created a mask for the right side of it and stamped the image from Something Marvelous.  The sentiment is from Heaven's Masterpiece and is one we all can use often.  I did mat my one layer on a base, so I hope that still counts as a single layer.  For me... this is VERY CAS!  The only embellishment is a sheer ribbon.  I am definitely going to try this technique again!  It works great on solid stamps, silhouette stamps, or any that have enough rubber to pick up the extra texture of the crumpled tissue.

I hope you'll give it a try!

Thanks so much for having a look!

Blessings & Hugs,

Grace, this is a really beautiful card. But I have a question...what do you mean by using "crumpled up tissues" to ink the stamp. I have not heard of that and am not sure what you mean by it....
Thanks...I love your blog. Been getting it on email for a long time :o)
