CAS Mix Up December Challenge

The December challenge on CAS Mix Up allowsCapture d_écran 2017-11-21 à 10.45.27 two options of your choice + Stamping.  I just went crazy over the choices so I stamped, heat embossed, die-cut, Pearl-Ex, spray inks, used Brushos and watercolours.  My puzzle die was coloured using Brushos (crimson & a bit of lemon), once dried I added a smoosh of Heidi Swapp’s gold color shine spray.  UTEE gave this shiny finish to my die-cut.  I wrapped gold wire along with gold beads to this piece.  As for the card base I stamped leaves from the SSS collection and white heat embossed.  I watercoloured with Gansai Tambi Starry Colors blending some red from the Zig clean color brushes to compliment.  Finally, I stamped “du fond du coeur” (from the bottom of my heart) with Versamark to which I brushed some Aztec Gold Pearl-Ex.  This was then clear heat embossed to stabilize the powder.  I popped up my die cut and adhered it to the center of my leaves which completed my December project.

Do join in on the fun!  There’s plenty of Design Team inspiration to be found on the blog.  Hope to see you there 😉  Thanks for stopping by, Hugsjoanna-cmu-signatureIMG_2200Here’s a close-up 😀  IMG_2201
