It's time for another
CAS Mix Up Challenge
Thank you for the wonderful response to our birthday party last month.
It was quite a party!
This month's challenge is
I've used stamping, floating inlaid die-cutting (using Catherine Pooler's technique),
heat embossing, watercolor, and splattering.
Check out the wonderful inspiration cards by our talented Design Team.
We are joined this month by our Guest Designer, Maria,
who was the winner of our February challenge.
To make this card, I partially die cut the butterfly (Concord and 9th) from a piece of textured cardstock.
After pressing him into the VersaMark pad, I heat embossed him in black
(very carefully, I might add). I repeated the process to get him totally covered in the black.
I watercolored on the smooth side of a piece of Arches watercolor paper,
using Distress Inks, a spray bottle and an Aqua Painter.
I'll recommend you watch the video to see how to put it together as I ended
up putting it together and taking it apart several times before I got it right!
That's why the beads have globs of glue. To do it again, I would make sure
it was put together correctly BEFORE adding the beads.
Ahh, adventures in cardmaking!
