CAS Mix Up Reminder with a Splash


We've reached the mid-point of the month and there's still plenty of time to 
join in at CAS Mix Up.



Loll (Stamping with Loll) has a new video with a fun watercolor technique.

I'll bet you'll want to give it a try!

I used it on this card which fulfilled the requirement for
watercoloring. I also have the required stamping and added
 die cutting, sponging and shaping (on the flower).

We are so excited to see so many amazing entries in this challenge!

Do go over and check out that gallery.

I'm going to take my snippets over to
Pixie's Snippet Playground


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Hi Bonnie,

Bonnie, I truly believe this is one of the prettiest cards I've ever seen! Love that technique but your card is just sensational and beautiful! I went over to Loll's and checked out the technique and will be trying that as soon as I have some time.
