This week's cue word for the CASology blog's challenge is:
For my card I decided to try a technique I learned about ages ago but have never put into practice called the "Spritz & Flick" technique:
After die cutting a heart from cardstock I vertically blended Ranger tattered rose, spun sugar, worn lipstick and barn door distress inks across it. Then I misted a mix of perfect pearls and water into my hand and flicked drops of water onto the heart. Love the cool bleached effect!
I didn't want to waste the negative space from my heart die cut so I cut it to size and adhered it to my card front with foam tape. After adhering the inked heart into place I added the fun Basic Grey scrabble chipboard letters (that I just scored on sale at JoAnn's!). I think this will make a great Valentine!
Supplies Used: Papertrey ink rustic white cs, Cricut George & Basic Shapes cart, Creative Impressions twine
One of the things I struggle with when making CAS cards is knowing when to stop:) After completing the steps above I still felt like my card was "missing something" so I added the twine. Would love to know your thoughts! Do you think I should have left the twine off or do you think it adds something needed to the design????
Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to comment!
