February CAS Mix Up Reminder

Capture d_écran 2018-01-15 à 13.04.05Welcome back to our CAS Mix Up Challenge 😀   This month we’re having fun with Felt, Cork OR Canvas.

To start, I applied Gesso onto a piece of canvas given to me by my dear friend Bonnie.  This added some tooth to the postage die cut piece so that I could stamp the Hampton artistamp “novel background” in Versafine Sepia Ink.  The girl die cut (AliExpress) in 140lb watercolour paper was painted, clear heat embossed and glued onto the bottom right section previous painted with burnt siena to ground her.  A wood heart was added all for the love of reading.  This was adhered on-top of a piece of teal cork background die cut (Papersooches) over the white card base.

There’s lots of inspiration from the design team, from our special guest Marianne, PLUS Videos for tips and tricks.  Hope you’ll join us!

Bonnie and Loll are launching a brand Capture d_écran 2018-02-06 à 22.02.38NEW challenge which will be starting March 3rd. The new CAS Christmas Card Challenge or CCCC will be the place to visit next month and have more fun in the card world.

Thanks for stopping by,

And finally, one using cork and felt.  The back ground and stamped leaf is with Orange Brusho and then clear embossing several times with the “water bead” stamp from Deep Red.  I entered this card for the Inspirational Challenge #154Aperture“.

Can’t wait to see you in our gallery 😀  IMG_2325
