The Paper Players Challenge #146 - Masculine CAS

This week at The Paper Players, the theme is Masculine Clean & Simple.

Well, I have taken that quite literally & made my card really "clean" by using bleach as the colouring medium, lol:-

I punched some 1/2", 3/4" & 1" cardstock circles & temporarily adhered them to the card panel.  I mixed up a 50:50 solution of bleach & water in a spray bottle & misted the panel.  I removed the circle masks, gave the panel a blast from the heat gun & this is the outcome.

A popped up banner sentiment & some white baker's twine made it a quick & simple creation.  (A tip re the twine - you can't see it in the photo, but I used my scoring tool to create four vertical lines to lay the baker's twine in.  This keeps it nice & straight!)

You can check out the fabulous projects from The Paper's Player Design Team, peruse the Gallery & play along here:-

Mother's Day Box - Sent With Love ♥

I made this project for my Mum for Mother's Day.  I just had to make a little box, tied up with string (aka Calypso Coral baker's twine), using the stamps & papers from the Sent with Love products from SU.  It is 3" x 3" x 3":-

It opens like this & holds a gift card holder & a mini photo album:-

Here is the mini album:-
