It's time for a new challenge at CAS Mix Up.
(I didn't realize until just now that the vellum is kind of rippled. It wasn't intentional)
The very talented Mac is our host this month and this is what she chose.
There are definitions of ombre on the challenge site as well as links to video tutorials.
I did this background with a baby wipe. I saw Jennifer McGuire do this and
wanted to try it while we were all hot on using baby wipes.
I folded a baby wipe several times until it was a good size to fit around the edge of
an acrylic block and attached it with a rubber band. I added a few drops of
three different colors of Distress re-inkers and swiped it on a piece of cardstock.
With this piece I got fancy and swiped it in different directions.
I stamped with a small set of Lavinia stamps that I got while in Vancouver.
For a little added interest, I dry embossed a couple corners of the design piece.
So my mixed media are Ombre, Baby Wipe, Stamping, Dry Embossing,
Vellum and Heat Embossing.
I hope you'll be inspired by our talented Design team and our
