Hi everyone. Having fun with my Zig watercolour brushes again. Love them!
I made this thank you card for a dear friend. She has now received it in the mail, so I'm sharing with you. :)
I stamped and heat embossed "delightful" from Penny Black in liquid platinum embossing powder on mixed media paper. I then watercoloured with my zigs, using a damp paint brush. I added some small dots with a white gel pen to the petals to give them some extra interest. The sentiment is also heat embossed in liquid platinum and sequins were added for a little sparkle. I'm happy with this one layer CAS Mix Up (mixed media) design, which includes stamping, heat embossing, and watercolouring.
I'm entering this into Time Out Challenges #57 - Inspired by words "May all your weeds be wild flowers".
Also entering into Penny Black and More Challenge - Anything Goes.
I was so happy with my card above that I made a second card. Same design, just different colours. :)
I'm linking this card to AAA #65 - The 2nd Big Birthday Bash. Congrats to all the team as they celebrate this fantastic milestone!
And I'm entering into Simon Says Wednesday - Anything Goes. I used a Technique Tuesday sentiment for the card above.
Edited to add: Thanks to Bobby ... I'm entering this into Fusion Challenge - Something Blue. :)

I have added a new Pinterest Board. CAS Mixed Media has become a bit part of my life, so I decided to add a new board for that style of card. Would love for you to check it out if you have time.
As well, I have been working on my blog post labels and have managed to reduce them from 322 (yikes!) to 117. :) I wish it could be less, but for now, I'm happy with 117. I have added them to the bottom of my blog for anyone looking for something in particular.
Thanks for stopping by!
