DV #211 CAS (Clean and Simple)

Today’s challenge over at Dream Valley is Clean and Simple and we are sponsored by LeAnn's World 101.

I made my background by stamping  with versamark and embossing in white so I would get a resist look, using Studio Calico Lattice Background.

I spritzed heavily with water and then dripped various colours from Dr. PH Martin’s Bombay Inks on, and rolled over it with a roll of kitchen roll to soak up the excess paint and take away the heaviness of the colour. I let it dry naturally as I had heat embossed earlier and didn’t want to alter that.

When it was dry I diecut it with MFT’s Snowdrift Coverup MFT775. I placed the frame down on my card and held it slightly in place long enough to re-position the diecut wavy strips so they would be neat and tidy. I didn’t notice until I photographed it that I had the last one to the right slightly off.

I diecut the Sheena Birthday sentiment die from a copper coloured mirror card and popped on using thin foam tape strips.
