The CAS-ual Fridays challenge for the next two weeks is birthday themed to celebrate Michele's birthday. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to play with some new toys: a cupcake punch and sponge daubers from Stampin' Up! and Nestabilities scallop dies from Spellbinders.
|Two Cards in One?|
For supplies, please see cards below.
So, I made two cards, each inspired by the disparate images of the first card.
For Mom or Big Sis
|watercolor paper washed in watered-down Warm White acrylic; Bazzill black|
circles: Distress Ink peeled paint, dusty concord, and tumbled glass, sponged on using SU daubers
circle and hole punches from EK and Marvy
Mark Richards rhinestones
Bernadette Kirk taught the technique of punching out templates and using the templates to sponge on images at a recent Stampin' Up class. Think I'm going to be using this idea lots more. Thanks, Bernadette!
For Little Sis
This just feels like a bright, cheery, fun card perfect for the little girl in the family.
For Dad or Brother
After experimenting with sponging on Distress Inks, I decided to try it out with the SU honeycomb embossing folder and went with a masculine palette. For this card, I embossed an index card and cut out hexagons to create sponging templates.
Not a bad first effort. Think this could take on lots of different looks with different palettes and fonts.
Thanks for stopping. Have a great week and happy scrappin'!
