More Class Cards with Versacolor inks......

Good Morning all,
I apologise for not being around too much lately on the Blog and Facebook, my time has been taken up with preparation for classes, Create and Craft shows and designing products for lovely Imagination Crafts.....not to mention the NEC Trade show last week which was great but exhausting!!
We have lots of new exciting products coming in and some great new classes planned for you which I will be announcing soon on the blog and my website as soon as I know when the stock can be delivered!!
Thanks to my right arm...Kirsten for her constant support and stepping in for me on the blog and keeping everything going for me...... You are a star!
I thought that I would show you today, three of the card samples that I made for the class last month using the CAS acrylic block and ink technique that Kirsten blogged HERE.

Once the ladies practised and mastered the technique on copy paper they then went about applying the ink on to water colour card as I have done here:

For the background I used Versacolor Canary and Orange. For the stamping I used IndigoBlu Stamps and Onyx Black Versafine to over stamp my background on the card below and I then embossed it with Wow Clear Embossing Powder. I then matted and layered the piece and decided to take it over on to my main card, so lined up the images and then stamped them on the main card below. I think it is really effective and gives a lovely CAS look with a splash of colour......

For the next one I used Versacolor Turquoise and Heliotrope (two of my favourites) with the lovely Penny Black Fanciful Stamp and a sentiment from IndigoBlu Live, Love, laugh stamp set......

And lastly for this one I used Versacolor Atlantic and Bamboo (again I love these colours).
I used the TWC mini chicken wire reversed stencil and some soft Black Soot Distress ink just in a few areas to add some texture to the background. The main image was Lavinia Stamps Zen Grass which will be coming in to stock again soon and the wording was using Hobby Art Alphabet Typed Stamp Set.......
Well I do hope that this has given you the urge to have a go and create a simple CAS ink background and maybe enter it in to out blog challenge HERE, there is still time to enter......
Until next time, have a great week.....
Hugs Lisa B xx
