CAS Mix Up challenge for January ... and it's a fun one! :) Hosted by Bonnie ... this is such a cool challenge.
Use any product that starts as a liquid ... could be alcohol inks, stains, re-inkers, liquid paints, etc. The choice is yours. :)
I started with a Floating Alcohol Ink panel that I made last year. This technique is a little messy, so I made several up at one time. Click HERE for a link to a video tutorial on this fun and easy way to use alcohol inks. I believe I used mixed media card stock, but you can use glossy, regular card stock and haven't tried it, but yupo should work well too. :)
I die-cut this modern hexagon background from my card front and the alcohol ink panel. I inlaid the white pieces back into the design, and then glued most of the matching alcohol ink pieces on top, popping up the rest for a bit of dimension. Wanted to keep the design very CAS, so added a simple stamped sentiment to finish.
My CAS Mix Up card has alcohol inks, floating alcohol ink technique, die-cutting, inlaid die-cutting and stamping. :)
We are so happy to have Trina (My Crafting Closet) as our Guest Designer this month. Welcome Trina!!
