Old, New, Borrowed, Blue!

WOW! We had a great time last week playing with all the wonderful products from IMAGINE Crafts and Dreamweaver Stencils. Thanks for all the comments, they make it much more fun! Congratulations to our winners (see the DREAM it UP! blog to see if you were one of the lucky three!).
This week we are back to our June challenge of "Old, New, Borrowed, Blue" theme. I created this card as part of an upcoming class(July 9th) at Memories and Beyond in Downers Grove, IL.
LG757 Heron stencil - Sludge Pasting Technique

This is a technique called Sludge Pasting. It's when you take a couple of different colors of paste, gently swirl them together on your paste spreader, then paste your image. It's a very cool look. We will be mixing some colors for one of the other cards, then use our left overs to create this card. "Waste not, want not!"
Here's all three cards we will be creating in class:

The "A" team is creating for you today:

Happy Creating,

I love the look of this technique Louise! The mix of colors is so very striking and such a great way to get so many different looks from one stencil. AMAZING!

Lea said...

Oh, Louise! What a fun card and technique!! I think I'm going to make some "sludge" paste and play! Your card is super cool and you always inspire me!

Beuatiful cards Louise as usual. I love sludge pasting and the colors you used are so pretty. Hope you doing well.

I always love the look of the sludge pasting...different every time. Very cool how you divided the card in half once again!

I love the cards you made for this class. They are all great! I especially like the technique you used for this card. I will have to give it a try.
