Createx Creation

Well.........well.........well........I can't really say much about this technique except it was messy and interesting. LOL. Our bimonthly challenge on the CTRUS group was to make a createx creation card from the Technique Junkies newsletter. Basically you take your paints and put drops on a piece of glossy cardstock and cover it with another piece of glossy cardstock and smoosh it all around. Then you pull apart and let dry. I thought I had picked out cool colors, I used a silver, a black and hot pink and an aqua but when I was done it looked like I had blobs and I didn't know what to do. After much staring at my big mess and thinking oh man Carole will hate me (my partner in the swap) I finally decided to make this flutterby. I did emboss it because it didn't show up very well on top of the colorful ink. All in all I was surprised and pleased with it in the end. If you haven't tried this you should it was interesting and fun to see how it came out.
