CAS Mix Up April Challenge

It's time for another CAS Mix Up Challenge


Loll chose the challenge for us this month and I know you're going to have lots of fun with it.



Lee-Anne Cross  is our Featured Designer this month.
Be sure to check out her card and the tutorial she has shared with us this month.

I've chosen to use Embossing Paste with my stencil.  
I've also Inked the stamp with markers, watercolored a little scene 
and die cut it into a tag.
I added a bit of ribbon, cotton thread and rhinestones for extra texture.

I can't wait to see how you choose to use your stencils!

Hope to see you at CAS Mix Up!


and at

Your little water coloured tag is so pretty. I love that embossing folder you have used with the paste. That and the tag go perfectly together. Pure Klass. Hugs Mrs A.

Awesome card! I thought your stenciling was an embossing folder at first. You've done a smash up job with this CAS mixed media thing.

Beautiful card Bonnie, your watercoloured tag is stunning.

Pat said...

This tag is really pretty Bonnie and I love the texture paste through the stencil in the background too. x

This is too dang good Bonnie. I fell behind in my Blog Snooping while my daughter and her four children were here over Easter vacation. And it is always so hard to catch up. But I am so glad I am trying because I would have hated to miss this beauty. One of my favorite - oh my!
