Faux Cyanotype Technique Sand Dollar card

I was so inspired by another card maker that I follow that I just HAD to try this technique! I was watching Lydia from http://understandblue.blogspot.com/ do a faux cyanotype and almost fell out of my chair because it looked so cool! After I googled what a cyanotype was and why this was faux, I set out to CASE her card! I knew exactly what stamp set I was going to use from Stampin’ Up! called Nature’s Wonders. It is an old one but I love it and can never find enough clever ways to use it — until now! Here is my rendition! It is also my submission for a Summer CAS card WWC73 at Watercooler Wednesday  http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.com/  and Week 317 White and Bright at City Crafter Challenge  http://citycrafter.blogspot.com/. I hope you like it!

  1. Hi Cyndi, what a wonderful clean and simple card! I had to look up the meaning of cyanotype, too, and this is on my list. Love what you’ve done and the stamps you’ve used. This is definitely a technique I have to try. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  2. Cyndi this is indeed a wonderful CAS card. I loved the Nature’s Wonders stamp set when I got it and never parted with it either. What a great way to show case the sand dollar. Perfect. Thanks so much for joining in with this week’s Watercooler Wednesday!
