Pine Boughs for CAS Mix Up

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I've used a piece of salted background and used this beautiful, Big Bold stamp
that I won during Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge in July.

Using my MISTI, I stamped parts of the pine boughs and pine cone with White Pigment ink
placing it off the side.  Then I heat embossed the images.

I used Zigs and my waterbrush to add color to the pine cone and winked the boughs
and cones to add some shimmer.  The camera chooses to ignore the sparkle.

It's a lovely card, Bonnie! Your salted background is fabulous - reminds me of the photos I love the most, where the subject is in focus, and the background is beautifully blurred! I have no problem imagining the sparkle!
