I found this monoprint in my stuffed to the gills box of backgrounds.
It's a piece left over from these cards.
To make the piece, I dragged Mini Distress Ink cubes along the stencil,
spritzed with water and pressed onto mixed media paper.
The happy die was a birthday gift from a special friend. I used vellum
for the background and a snippet of cardstock for the happy.
Birthday was stamped and heat embossed.
There's a little dry embossing too.
My mixed media are Stencil Monoprint, Stamping, Heat Embossing,
Dry Embossing and Die Cuts.

CAS Mix Up Challenge site for video tutorials.
Hope you have a happy day!
