More Fun Coloring Die Cuts for CAS Mix Up

Hello friends! It's hard to believe the month is half over!

There's just over a week to color your die cuts and enter at CAS Mix Up.

Using Distress Crayons, die cuts, stamping, heat embossing and dry embossing.

I'm hosting the challenge this month.

I had fun coloring this die cut with my Distress Crayons.

The color spread smoothly on cardstock with my finger.
I wet my finger with a baby wipe occasionally to help the color move easier.

Details were added with Polychromos Pencils.

I popped the poppies in a die cut frame with a snippet of
an embossed piece in the background.

I should have colored the buds in green but did them in red.
Trying to go over them with green didn't work great.

Oh well.

There are video links at the challenge site to show
different ways to color your die cuts.

The gallery is full of awesome colored die cuts too.

The challenge is open until the 24th.

I Love your gorgeous crayon colored poppies, Bonnie. I thought the darker shade of buds looked very natural. I will never look at dies the same after playing in your wonderful colouring die cuts challenge. I have had so much creative fun coloring different dies..thank you for the inspiration, my friend. Hugs..

I love the vibrant red poppies and the design/layout of the card, Bonnie! Adding the details with Polychromos Pencils is a great idea. I'll try to remember that when I color with distress crayons next time. The dry-embossed background adds interest and the placement of the poppies is perfect! Hideko xx

Ahhh, such a beautiful, rich look you got with the distress crayons. Handy tip re the baby wipe. And the embossed mat sets it all off so well -- you sure have a knack for those well chosen finishing touches to make the whole card shout "WOW"!

BEAUTIFUL card Bonnie!! I have a soft spot for Poppies and yours are just GORGEOUS! And I like the way your buds are a little darker because of the green, so not an "oh well" in my book at all! Love the textured background too...sets up those Poppies just beautifully!! Lovely, lovely card my friend! :0)

What a bright punch of red, just like the real ones in my garden. All set against the dry embossed woven basket aperture, really adds to your whole design. The black accent pulls this beauty together, lovely card Bonnie xx

Beautifully coloured poppies, Bonnie. You’ve achieved such a rich red colour. Never noticed the buds... they look fine in red. The embossed background behind the frame looks fabulous. xx
