Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge Inspiration for February.
Our theme is Take a Technique: Text Me!!
For this month’s challenge the technique we would like you to use text or script background stamps, or text paper in your projects. Any language, any style. Old book pages, bits torn from magazines, scrapbooking papers.. whatever you can find! … The ‘text’ part does NOT include sentiments, phrase or single word stamps…. think backgrounds!!
This should be super fun to see what you come up with.
Take a look at my card:
I love how this card turned out!! I used Clarity Stencils-Chinese Lantern and Clarity Stencil Brushes to create the pattern on the texted pattern paper. These two products are my favorite supplies this year thus far.
This is how I created this card:
I placed the stencil over the pattern paper and used two different brushes to apply the Distress Ink Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn.
Here is where the magic happened, I moved the stencil over slightly to the right and applied BoBunny Sugar Glitter Paste, Yummy!!
I let the glitter paste dry and cut the unknown text pattern paper down to 4 by 5.25.
I adhered the pattern paper to the black cardstock with Tombow Extreme Adhesive because I needed the pattern paper to stick securely to the card base because of its weight.
Then I die cut Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks three times and adhered them together and onto the pattern paper using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.
I placed a heavy book on top of the finish card to assure the die cut sticks to the pattern paper.
Take a closer look:
There you go! That’s how I created this card.
So what do you think? I’m in love, are you?
