You light up my life!

Hi there!

Time to join  some challenge fun!

A little out of my comfort zone today... resulting in yellow stained fingers. Note to self... next time when using  food coloring on a card... put on latex gloves!

I started off using water color paint, but by the time the 'grunge' was evident enough... the card stock was soaking wet! So out came the food coloring. And only a spray or 2 gave a great effect!

Other supplies :

Dry wall tape
Light bulb stencil (cut with Silhouette) & sponged with Versafine Onyx black.
Aquarelle card stock
My own digital sentiment ( cut out and popped up with dimensional tape )

You guessed the challenges, right?

Casology  ~ electric

Addicted to Cas . ~ grunge


Thanks so much for looking!

Hi, vrou, daai agtergrond wat jy so met die koekkleursel en dry wall tape gedoen het, is net te pragtig en die kleur so goed gekies om die gloeilamp se lig te weergee!! Die gloeilamp is natuurlik net te stunning vir woorde en wel, die sentiment net soooo gepas!!! Dis alweer 'n wenner hierdie en so lieflik vir al die challenges!!! Puik!! (soos altyd!!)

I would say you're getting a lot of use out of your Cameo. This is a great card for both challenges.

Another 'brilliant' idea Hannelie! I love the texture on the light bulb paper and of course, the drywall tape!

Food coloring...clever as ever! It creates a soft, water colored look :)

Thanks for the great sentiment :)

What creativity, Hannelie ... dry wall tape and food colouring ... how inspired ... and what a stunning background they make! The bold black bulb and sentiment are so fabulous against it! Thanks so much for playing along with ATCAS! Anita :)

Your sentiment caught my eye in the gallery. Had to come get a closer look. Fabulous, as usual. Can't believe the coverage you got with your Versafine.
