Encouragement Challenge #2

Hello everyone!!  Welcome to the second Calling All Sistahs Encouragement Challenge.  
This month's inspiration board was so fun to work with, with all those beautiful colors!!


For my card based on inspiration from this photo was to get out my Gansai Tambai water color paints and  painted stripes of paint. Next. I took plain old plastic Cling Wrap from the kitchen and place it on the wet paint crinkling it as i went. I let it sit that way for a while, them removed the wrap once it was fairly dry. This leaves you with an amazing abstract background.



Next I cut down my panel with a stitched rectangle die and then I used three other stitched circle dies and cut out holes in my panel and and the same size circles from white cardstock. I popped up the front Layer and inset the cut out pieces of the background in the openings. I stamped the sentiment from The stamp set BE by CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and popped them up on two layers of foam tape, so they set raised up from the front panel.  As my final addition I added a few glitter enamel dots.

I hope you enjoyed this card , the inspiration board and will created a card to enter into the 
Calling All Sistahs Encouragement Challenge. And, remember Michelle is offering up a gift certificate to the CAS-ual Fridays Shop to the winner.
Please hop on over to the Calling All Sistahs Bog and see all the fabulous card the team has made!

Have and amazing Day and see you soon!!

Susan, your background looks like rich fabric! The cling wrap technique gave it a great "texture". I'm so glad you are a part of the Encouragement Squad.

CP Designs Inks

As may of you may already know I love Catherine Pooler's Inks!!  They ink up stamps do well with just a few light taps of the stamp to the ink, the colors all go together from each collection so no weird colors that don't go together. and the ink once wiped of does not transfer ink from one color to the next!! 
The first collection was named the Party Collection  and is composed of highly saturated bright and fun colors!!  I have used mine so much I just ordered the entire set of reinkers!!  I also can use these reinkers to watercolor with my water brush and for techniques that require more ink instead of using my ink pad!


The Party Collection
There is also two colors in the Neutrals Collection.

Now Catherine had begun releasing a new collection of colors called the Spa Collection!! These inks are a less saturated color which allows them to have more muted color.

Catherine has revealed the first 6 colors and they are Gorgeous!!



The next two colors will be revealed Monday on Facebook …

I wanted to make a special card for Michelle, so I made my first trifold card.  The card is mostly just one layer with the Ballerinas glues to each panel. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks and with layering and masking created the floor.  For the stage lighting I used masking paper and sponged Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet Distress inks I them sprayed water on top and picked it up with a paper towel to get a distressed look. For the stamping I used Flirty Fuchsia, Party Dress, All the Jazz, Icing on the Cake and Sweet Sixteen inks from Catherine Pooler Designs . The stamps are all from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps…
