Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
It's time for a new challenge at CAS Mix Up.
This month we're doing watercoloring.
This month, Leslie is our talented host and she chose...
I've die cut this lovely Memory Box poppy from watercolor paper
and colored it with Distress Inks.
To get the background, I laid the die cuts on a piece of Mixed Media paper.
My messy watercoloring gets just enough color on the background.
I die cut extra flower heads from the same piece of watercolor paper
and colored to match so I could have lots of dimension.
I used my NBUS Mini Slimline Double Stitched Die to cut out the main image
and to cut the edges of the sentiment strip.
The textured background is the backside of the cover to a Mixed Media pad and
the black center to the open flower is done with Prills.
Our fantastic Design Team and our amazing Guest Designer, Ros have
lots of wonderful inspiration for you. There are also videos with
some great ideas for using Autumn colors on cards.
I hope you'll check us out and join us at
