It's a special month for us.
CAS Mix up is 2!!!!
We're celebrating with prizes for the top pick and one random draw winner.
Be sure to check out the challenge and enter a card for your chance to win!
We also have some exciting changes at CMU.
I'll get to them in a minute.
First, our challenge hosted by Susan
and my card.
I used acetate as a window by first embossing the image on
heat resistant acetate with StazOn white ink and heat embossing.
The acetate is sandwiched between two pieces that have the
window cut from them
I stamped this gorgeous flower again with Mustard Seed Distress ink
on a piece of watercolor paper and colored it in using inks that
were smooshed unto my palette. I picked up the ink with a water brush.
The trickiest part for me was lining the watercolor flower behind the
acetate window after die cutting it.
The sentiment starts on the front and finishes inside.
My mixed media are
stamping, acetate, heat embossing, watercolor and die cuts.
*****Sadly, this is Susan's last month at the Mix Up.
We'll miss her wonderful designs as inspiration, but she promises
to join in the challenges.
Gladly, she is joining the CAS Christmas Card Challenge.
It starts in just two days.
We're so excited!!!!
