Mix-ability lets you color outside the lines

I've been super busy with a little, okay a lot of Stampendous catalog designing, but I squeaked in a time to play with the Splitcoast Stampers Mix-Ability challenge. I've missed it this past week and must catch up, but today is a new challenge and Birgit has brought a super awesome challenge.

Use print plus gesso! That's super easy and hey, if the print gets mostly lost from the fun of gesso and color, that's okay. We know it's down underneath all that goodness.

My card was a CAS'MM. It's clean and simple meets mixed media. The sentiment panel was put together quickly by  taping around the edges of the pre-sized chipboard. I glued torn book page pieces onto the chipboard and tried to stay off of the tape with the glue. I painted and gesso'd then stamped the sentiment as it would be put on the lime card base. Heat set if you're in a hurry (it is a CAS card). I carefully pulled the tape directly away on the same plane from the chipboard so the book pages would tear off as well. The card base was run through my Cuttlebug with Sissix' chevron embossing folder. Here is a photo step-by-step in case you're visual like myself.

Stamps: Color Outside (Stampendous) (step instructions - Baggage Claim by Stampendous)
Paper: chipboard, book paper, lime (Wausau)
Ink: Jet Black (Archival, Ranger), white gesso, acrylic paints
Accessories: embossing folder (Sissix)
