CAS Mix Up October Reminder

Capture d_écran 2018-08-27 à 11.01.14We’re already half way through the month, time flys 😉  This month at CAS Mix Up our host is Mac, who has challenged us with the METAL theme, with videos to get you started.  There’s still plenty of time to play, the linky closes at midnight (PDST) on Wednesday the 24th of October.

For this card I used 2 stencils: one, sponging cracks through a circle mask; and the second, to apply molding paste for the old watch (see photo).  I added different metallic 359A95B9-05E4-4A8B-9D76-B5937757CA06embossing powders and heat dried immediately.  Once done, I added some Glossy Accents to give a glass impression.  I added two heat embossed die-cuts, a gear from Memory Box and a tricycle from Tattered Lace.  “Prendre le temps” (taking the time) was stamped in black Versafine and clear heat embossed.


We would love for you to play along with us this month!  Check out the details at the CAS Mix Up blog and visit with the designers and our host PAT, to see their incredible creations.  Thanks so much for stopping by, HUGz,

  1. What a wonderful mix of images Joanna, and what great mixed embossing on the pocket watch with the glossy accents on the face, and also the gold penny farthing and the silver cog. This would make a great masculine card and I love the sentiment too. x
