Hey there! I needed a quick birthday card for my step-daughter that turned 19 on the 4th of this month and thought utilizing the class I was taking would be nice and trendy for her! One of the first videos is by Laura Bassen and uses an acrylic block, Distress inks and a mister – perfect for a quick, CAS card.
The only problem I ran into with this was the heaviness of my paper – it’s 140# which means it can get worked a bit more without pilling. I didn’t feel like it took the color in the same way as the sample video.
I didn’t have a Mustard Seed ink pad, but I do have the marker. I colored the acrylic block with the marker and stamped, then Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers.
Her favorite color is lime green so I was trying to achieve that in the blended parts. I ended up using a waterbrush and some extra ink to make it a bit more continuous in color. The happy words are from Wplus9 and the birthday is from PTI. Super simple and nice to have on hand in a variety of colors! Thanks so much for stopping by!
