CAS Mix Up October - Ghosting & Creative with Stamps #7 Sentiment

A card for two challenges:


Wow I don't know how Loll gets such crisp images when she sprays, but this was about the 5th time I tried .  I tried a smaller leaf stencil and then the PTI Color Pop Autumn and was not successful with them at all.
This time I used a wet paper towel to blot off the color but it still left a lot of the color on it so  then sprayed it and quickly removed it, praying I hadn't ruined it and finally was successful.

Distress Inks, Barn Door, Ripe Persimmons, Spiced Marmalade, & Mowed Lawn
PTI's Color Pop Butterflies, stencil,  Autumn Pumpkins for sentiment, Vellum, Bookmark #3
Made the stripes with MFT Diagonal Stripes stame

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Great job Linda. Definitely you don't need to add much colour if you are using Distress Inks. They react so quickly with water ... very cool, isn't it??!! Love your pretty butterflies on that colourful background. And the vellum sentiment banner is perfect to let those gorgeous colours show through. Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx

  2. I had some problems getting crisp ghosted images too! Your butterflies are perfect though and that background shows them beautifully! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  4. Linda this is so beautiful! I say you did a fabulous job!
