It's a new month and the start of a new
CAS Mix Up challenge.
This month my dear and very talented friend Loll is hosting the challenge.
You'll find video tutorials on the CAS Mix Up site as well as Loll's blog.
As you'll see, there's more than one way to use a used paper towel on our cards.
My dear granddaughter had a play with Brushos and Lindy's Magicals a while ago
and we saved the paper towels from her mop up.
She used LOTS of crystals so we had some very vibrant mop ups!
Want to see some?
For this card, I laid an inky paper towel over a piece of Neenah cardstock,
spritzed liberally with water and pressed down into the cardstock.
Loll (and Jack) do much better about getting the pattern from the paper towel
but if you look real close in the upper right corner, you can see a little.
I've splattered a little Wilted Violet re-inker onto the background
piece and stamped the sentiment in the same color ink.
The flowers were die cut and watercolored with Zigs and a waterbrush.
I created the little twirly paper with my CutterPillar. It will cut a very thin strip
that curls. I used a piece of watercolored paper to cut them from.
Our very talented Design Team along with our Guest Designer, Betty,
have some awesome inspiration for you. I hope you'll head over to
to check them out, then pull out some inky paper towels and join in the fun!
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
