There's still time to play at CAS Mix Up.
Using Oxidized Metal Technique, Re-inkers, Heat Embossing, Botanical Printing, Stamping and Die Cutting.
I kept trying and finally found success with that first video.
You can find it here.
I used a piece of gold foil cardstock, added some drops of water then some drops
of re-inkers. I used orange and red so I could make a maple leaf.
After it was dry, I covered the piece with clear embossing powder and heated it.
I used a damp paper towel to wipe off excess ink and then coated it
again and heated.
For the background, I went in the yard and picked a maple leaf off the tree,
put it between two pieces of watercolor paper, folded a piece of printer paper around it,
and ran it through the Big Shot. The picture doesn't show it well, but the edges
of the leaf have a bit of pink. I was so happy to see that little bit of color transferred.
I used Cajun Craze to stamp the sentiment then stamped over it with Cherry Cobbler.
I loved the way the mix of the colors came out.
I hope you'll give this technique a try (or one of the other videos CAS Mix Up).
I'm really glad I didn't give up!
This is our last challenge for 2019!
