Cling Art

I was inspired by the CAS Mix It Up January Challenge and my friend Susanne's blog post to play with cling wrap and inks this weekend.  My card is so not-CAS that it doesn't matter that I was too late use it in the challenge.

There are so many ways to use cling wrap to get a design on paper.  I applied dots of ink from Stampin Up reinkers and gold Liquid Pearls onto a piece of  the cling wrap then smooshed glossy paper down on top of the ink.  I flipped it over and wrinkled the cling wrap.  After it dried and I had carefully pulled off the cling wrap, I had some interesting designs.

The insides of the flower and the bottom layer of the butterfly were die cut from the magenta and orchid dyed paper. Unfortunately, it doesn't show the gold highlights as well as some of the later experiments did.   If I had a do-over on this card, I would have glued all the parts to a light blue cardstock instead of a white layer that I ended up watercoloring because it was too stark.

The flowers are by DieNamites and the butterfly is a set from Impression Obsession. The sentiment is vintage Stampin Up from 1994.

Now I am off to play with my kitty who is very disgusted I have been at my computer so long.  I am getting some long looks and loud sighs from that guy.

As always, thank you for stopping by.

  1. You really played with this technique! Isn't it fun? Your card is fabulous! I think the watercolored background adds more interest than a plain light blue would have done. The gold outlines are very pretty with the magenta pieces!
