The current challenge for CAS-ual Friday is arrows - playing off the Hunger Games
I decided to get experimental for this card. I cut the shape out of paper with a Spellbinder die. I laid the negative over my base of mixed media paper. The shape was filled in with a mixture of gesso, modeling paste and acrylic paint and allowed to try. Well that took some time to happen. This looks like a quick card to make - NOT - when you have to allow a drying time. The arrow and sentiment strip were hand colord papers. I believe one day I was doing a mixed media project and had paint left on my sheet - so not wanting to waste it - I smeared a piece of paper over it. After it dried I did some spraying with masks, etc. I came up with a great piece of paper. The arrow is a die cut from Achievers - it does have coordinating stamps but I just wanted the arrow. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I decided I needed something extra - so got out the Studio Calico mists and did some flicking to get the spots. After the card was finished - I decided everything needed to be grounded so outlined the blue with a black marker. I had already run the black marker around the edge of the arrow and sentiment strip.
Oldie Moldie Monday post will be tonight. I made a card about 3 this morning. I had company this week end so was busy prepping for that and then enjoying my company.
