CASology CUE Card #84: Paint!

Welcome to CASology!

We are hoping that this week will truly inspire you 
and get the creativity flowing!
By now, you know I LOVE BOLD and am Crazy for Color!

For Paint, I wanted a little different approach
I am smitten with the fade out effect of inking.

I thought of Paint... One of my favorite movies of all time
is High Plains Drifter.  Clint Eastwood western classic
with a twist.  I won't spoil it for you,
I highly recommend it.

So Paint, washes, watercolor, I know,
"Paint the town Red!"

What does PAINT bring to mind for you?

We would LOVE to see what springs to mind
join us [HERE]


I inked heavily only the top edges of the stamp and used my Tim Holtz
Inksentials distress ink daubers to lightly bring down the paint.
I hope you like this effect and will try it sometime!

Ink: Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy
Memento Tuxedo Black

Kelly Purkey: I Like You               Mama Elephant : Central Park

I also stamped one of my new flourishes sets and
used the watercolor Twinkling H2o's

Flourishes Always Blooming
Twinkling H2o's 
Memento Tuxedo Black

If you want to use a larger stamp, and still keep it CAS, 
try stamping off the page.

I clear embossed the sentiment and some stars
Then washed over with Twinkling H2o's

Clear embossing with a watercolor wash has a dreamy effect!
Flourishes Just My Type Sentiments
(I am not sure if this is still available, the sets are going fast at Flourishes LLC.)
I used a post it to mask off only the sentiment I wanted to emboss.
Clear Embossing Powder
Twinkling H2o's 

Okay, sometimes I get carried away... 
I loved the idea of a washed out large image...

You made it tough this time. Like them all. Nope! Can't decide.

Ardyth said...

Wow you've been busy! I just about died when I saw your paint the town red card - so clever on its own, but then you add that cool technique! You nailed this one, my friend!

Jasleen Kaur said...

WOW!! I love all your cards here but the spraypaint inking you did for CASology is mind-blowing. Seriously, this is such an inspiring post Kimberley.

Meghan said...

I'm with Ardyth....you nailed this one squarely on the head! Totally amazing!

Shannon J said...

I just love that you go full tilt on everything you do! Four cards - WOW! And every single one of them is fabulous! LOVE your spray paint technique and gah, your twinkling h2o water coloured flowers are just gorgeous!

May Park said...

Wow!!! Paint fade out effect is awesome!!!! Thanks for sharing for all the amazing creations along with new techniques to me.

Joyce said...

Holy cow--what a lot of paint-inspiration here today. Love them all, and your first card especially.

Tracey McNeely said...

Busy lady and fantastic cards Kimberly--all of them. You rocked the paint cue!

cm said...

You had me with your reference to Clint Eastwood; swoon! His westerns are. the. best.! From that point, things just got better: a showcase of awesome here! Every card is unique, fresh, and a stellar showcase of a new technique (for me, anyway), new product (twinkling H2Os - interest captured), new design. All of this adds up to spectacular visual delights and amazing inspiration! Love it when you go full tilt!! Hugs~c

Barb Ghig said...

I had to scroll up and down several times just to take in all the AMAZING designs you created, Kimberly! WOW! I don't even know where to begin, except to say that you NEVER cease to amaze me with your talent!

Kim, I love them all and thanks for the technique on the city scene card. Looks awesome. That AMUSE studio set has been one of my fav's for a long time-- the font, the USA-- you did a great job with it and the splatter. Congrats on the feature as well-- the feather card is just lovely! xo
