Encased Card

I have a library book which is due in about three days so I've been trying to do some of the techniques in the book before that time. One of the  techniques that caught my eye is the encased technique. I've done something similar to this with wax paper,kleenex,and PVA glue. When I've done this in past I've used dried flowers. This is the first time though using wrapping tissue paper and moulding gel. Also I've never done it with images printed with my inkjet printer.
I didn't have a thick enough coat of moulding gel on the top layer of tissue paper so the flowers are a little splotchy where the wrapping paper is not as transparent looking.. I was pleased that the print images did not smear.

 The embossed panel was left over from play while taking my card class. I heat embossed on the deboss side and brushed watercolor over the entire panel. I decided to see about threading ribbon through my cloud sentiment. I think I like the effect although I  needed to slit the one side a little longer.

So there you have it my play for yesterday and today. I was going to do painting on fabric for a card but saw  a card on my friend Beth's blog and will be making my version of that card and posting it.

The sun is shining so I'm off to take the dogs to a dog park. Thanks for stopping by. Wishing you Frugal Happy Crafting till we meet again!

    Boy you are the brave little lady; trying out all these new techniques. Cool card.
    Looking forward to seeing your next one.

  2. I wonder if a new term for crafting can be coined. You do so many adventurous crafting; perhaps we could say you are a specialist in Craftology whic would make you a Craftologist. :) I love your adventurous ways. Hugs, Debbie
