Fun with the Cling Wrap Technique

The other day I played with the cling wrap Technique that is the theme at the current CAS Mix Up Challenge. They always have a list of interesting how-to videos to watch so if you don't know what I am talking about click here. I had SO MUCH FUN! I've said it before but I have to say it again: I LOVE making backgrounds! I made four cards but can only show you the one I made today, the others I will show you once they have arrived at their destinations.

Here is the result (one panel is already missing because I didn't think of taking a picture before I started making cards):




I used Distress Inks with Perfect Pearl spray and Distress Paint (the blue ones with silver paint) on glossy paper.
I had made already three cards when I saw the reminder post and that jaw-dropping card Loll made for it where she used a stencil with a different kind of cling wrap technique. I didn't use a stencil or use the her technique but it still inspired me to make this:




Stamp: Alexandra Renke (sentiment)
Die: Memory Box (flower)

Here is a close up so you can see the gold mixed in with the colors:





Sending this, of course, to the

CAS Mix Up January Challenge






You still have a few days to play if you feel like getting inky!

Be well and keep in touch!

What a lovely card you made, Susanne! You used your beautiful shimmering cling wrap background for the solid flower and the outlines! That's a great idea. Love your layout of elements too. I can't wait to see your other cling wrap cards! Hideko xx

Oh ja, hier hatte jemand definitiv Spaß!!!! Mit einem mega Klasse Ergebnis. Auf den ersten Blick sieht es sogar ein wenig nach Encaustic aus. Super schön und was Du dann daraus gemacht hast ist eine zarte und wunderschöne Karte!!

Liebe Susanne… diese Technik war mir neu und ich habe mich direkt mal schlau gemacht. Denn so wie du sie auf der Karte weiterverarbeitet hast, gefällt mir das Farbspiel sehr, so richtig was fürs Auge. Danke auch für die wunderschöne Inspiration für diese Stanze… die leidet bei mir nämlich ein wenig unter Langeweile…
Ganz lieben Gruß
Katrin

Those backgrounds are amazing! Your card is absolutely awe inspiring! Now I've got to go watch those videos!

Nora N. said...

WOW!! The backgrounds you created totally ROCK!! I love your card. So, so pretty!

I think we are all finding out that it is impossible to make only 1 cling wrap background. TFS all your backgrounds, Susanne. I LOVE your pretty cling wrap daisy and your open daisies. Such a pretty glimmery CAS design. So pleased you joined us at CAS Mix Up. Can't wait to see future cling wrap designs. Hugs...
