WPlus9 Birthday Week 4 (Stretch It), SSS Monday 24/2 (Paste)

Second post of the day … here’s another ‘renovation stuff’ card …

WPlus9 Bday 4, SSSM 24-2

This is another entry at the fourth week of WPlus9‘s birthday celebrations.  I’m meeting the Stretch It theme (try a new style or technique or use supplies in a creative way) by doing some stencilling … never done that before.  At Simon Says Stamp Monday, we’re challenged to use paste … mmm … there’s a match!

I don’t have any stencils … or  embossing paste … so I used my trusty plasterboard mesh tape and mixed up a little jointing medium (I got the idea for the latter from Shirley who used polyfilla in the same way not long ago) .  The tape was temporarily adhered to a white card panel and each side was masked.  I made three piles of ‘paste’, squished them into distress inks on a non-stick sheet and then spread away, merging the three colours as I went.  While it was drying, I trimmed a vellum banner, and stamped and silver embossed the WPlus9 sentiment.  Once the panel was dry, the banner was adhered at one end to the back and at the other with a wee glue dot.  A scattering of silvered sequins finished it off … one covers the glue dot.  I inked up the edges of a card base and adhered the panel flat to it.

One more to go tonight … back soon!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a delight!  Anita 🙂

    This is amazing Anita – you’ve been so creative in how you’ve done this. Just goes to show there is always another way without having to go out and pay loads for the “proper” stuff!!! Gorgeous.

    …and I REALLY quite like this card! I left such a clever comment on this post but it seems that some internet creature has gobbled it up! I’m sure I told you how talented and creative you are and that using your plasterboard mesh tape for something other than your house, is clever as ever! Love the soft shades of blue! Nice bling too!

    Beautiful CAS card. Love how you utilized some mesh to make it. As craft supplies are not available here, I admire such helpful ideas. Do visit my blog I’ve shared a technique there too.
