So.... cling film. That's the compulsory element at CAS Mix Up this month. I watched the videos, took notes, followed the instructions step by step - and you can't tell, without a magnifying glass, that I had cling film anywhere near this!
I laid the cling film out on my work surface, shook small amounts of brushos in greens, yellow and orange over it, spritzed with water, laid my card down on top of it, turned the card over, scrunched the cling film around a bit then left it to dry with the cling film still in place, peeling it off once dry.
If you look really, really closely you can see a few "scrunch lines" close to the left hand edge of the panel. On the other hand, the cling film did seem to help the brushos to blend prettily and give a "cloudy" effect rather than a "blotchy" one (which is what I usually end up with) so it DID make a difference, even if it wasn't the one I was hoping for!
To make up for the lack of crease lines and patterns, I stamped and heat embossed a vine leaf panel over my background. The stamp is a very old UM that I got in a grab bag. I coloured the leaves in with a green marker then added a die cut sentiment, cutting it twice, once from black and the second from white, to add a slight shadow to help it to stand out.
I am sharing this with
