It's a new month and a new challenge at CAS Mix Up.
My very talented and dear friend, Joanna is hosting our challenge this month.
I die cut the Joyful Flower from Penny Black from Neenah and used the piece left behind
as my stencil. Using a sponge dauber, I added color through the stencil.
I used another die cut flower to pop on the card as well. This time I used
some background pieces that ad been smooshed with ink and shimmer spray.
The flower head was done with Melon Mambo and Vanilla Shimmer.
The leaves are from Wild Wasabi and Gold Shimmer.
The rest of the pink flower background became the backing.
I love how it shows through this hemstitch frame.
I added a few prills to the centers of the flowers for texture.
My mixed media are Die Cut Stencil, Sponging through Stencil, Die Cutting, Smooshing,
Shimmer Sprays and Stamping
This is a great way to get more mileage out of our dies.
Our fabulous Design Team and Guest Designer, Ina, have some wonderful
examples of stencils from die cuts. I hope you'll check them out and join us at
