Today I'm reminding that there's still time to join in at
CAS Mix Up
CAS Mix Up
is hosted by the very talented Mac.
I used the Black Ice Technique and I've got to say that I was amazed at the results!
The pictures don't do it justice!
I used a small piece of silver foil cardstock and swiped some
Jet Black StazOn over it.
I let that dry then swiped some VersaMark over it and
covered it with clear embossing powder and heated it.
The shine is incredible!
I die cut with this darling watering can and shaped it with a bone folder.
For the background, I used some Distress ink smooshed on a piece of acetate
and spritzed to add a splotch on the base of my watercolor paper and
a watercolor pencil and water brush to add some ground.
The flowers are die cuts from a dear friend. I kept all the pieces intact
and used Zigs and a water brush to color them.
I arranged them using dimensionals atop some stamped wildflowers.
The design piece was die cut and the base card was embossed with a larger die.
The card is larger than I normally make. It's an A7 size.
My CAS Mix Up mixed media are:
Metal using the Black Ice Technique, stamping, acetate smoosh, watercolor, die cuts, embossing with a die and heat embossing.
Our Design team with fabulous Guest Designer Pat have lots of
inspiration for you. I hope you'll check them out and add to the gallery.
Challenges end on the 24th.
I'll also add this to the gallery at The CAS Watercolour Challenge
where we're celebrating our 2nd birthday with prizes!
