Savvy Creations with Cassandra / Créations avisées avec Cassandra


Hello Magenta Friends! Cassandra here today sharing a couple of stamped exploratory creations. I have been playing with a faux plaster/stone floral mixed media technique. For my monthly DT post, I thought I would try turning this second of four pieces into a card after initially trying it out on a canvas.






I started by spreading out some Golden molding paste on a craft mat. Once it was not sticky to the touch, I spritzed the Script and Postmark stamp with water and then pressed it into the paste in a variety of places. Next, I spritzed and pressed the Poppies stamp into the paste. Once dry, I added watered down black acrylic paint so it would seep into the script and cracks. After letting it set up a minute or two, I removed the excess off the top surface with a baby wipe. Then, I painted the poppies with Scribble Sticks using a waterbrush. Once dry, I matted it on a 4" x 6" black card base with a layer of cereal box board to give it a little dimension. Lastly, I added a slightly distressed sticker sentiment.


As I mentioned at the onset of the post, I was experimenting with this. I actually made 4 different faux plaster/stone floral bases with four different pastes. Here, I created a canvas with a similar process. For this one, I used Ranger Texture Paste and pressed the Doodle Flower stamp into it twice. I used brown acrylic paint for the crevices and Distress inks for colouring the flower. Further how-to details and photos can be found in the post here.




I hope you give this technique a try. If you do, please be sure to let me know and share your creation with us either in the comment section of this post, in our Magenta Style FB group or on Instagram.
