Tuesday Talk

Today I'm joining in with the challenge at CAS Mix Up where they are celebrating their 5th birthday.

I've never tried this technique before but decided to give it a go.

I used the Cogs and Gears die from Funky fossil and cut it out using foam. I then attached it with removeable glue to an acrylic block and painted two premixed brusho colours onto it. As it was all a bit wet and watery at this point I put the card on top of the foam die cuts rather than lifting the acrylic block and taking it to the card.

Once the main die cut was stamped I then added a couple of extra cogs and the the chain stamped repeatedly along each side. I added a birthday greeting - had to be since it's CAS Mix Up's birthday - using the new Graphic Words set also from Funky Fossil.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Graphic Words
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Brusho, turquoise & ultra marine
Dies: Funky Fossil, Cogs & Gears

Thanks so much for looking today, I really appreciate you taking the time.

Stay safe and keep crafting!

  3. I reckon you did pretty well for your first attempt at this technique. It took me ages to get anywhere with it. I love the softness of it and how you have used the extra dies to enhance the corner effect. Love the 2 tone blue too. Thanks for joining the birthday celebrations at CAS Mix Up this month xx

  4. Very cool and artsy, Jane! Glad you tried out the technique this month. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  5. Love these printed gears, Jane! The corner layout works perfectly with this fantastic sentiment! Thanks so much for sharing in our birthday celebration at CAS Mix Up!
