Hi everyone. Bonnie and I are excited to celebrate CAS Mix Up's 1st Birthday Celebration. We are so thankful to Nancy, Susan, Julia and Joanna ... our wonderful Design Team. And we are so thankful to all our challenge participants that have made CAS Mix Up a success!
To celebrate, we are offering two prizes this month. One for Challenge Winner and one random draw from all entries. Bonnie and I hope you'll celebrate with us for a chance to win! See details on the challenge blog HERE.
On to this month's challenge ... hosted by ME! :)
Smooshing is fun and easy to do. You can smoosh with so many different products. Here's links to a couple of videos I have done on Smooshing:
Smooshing with Inka Gold
The card above has a smooshed background of Liquid Watercolour Concentrate (yellow, orange, red). Once dry, I used a dotty circle stencil and gold ink to add some gold dots in the background. A tulip stencil was placed over top and I used embossing paste coloured with gold acrylic paint. Then I didn't like it ... the gold tulips were lost on the background, so I lined up the tulip stencil back over the dry embossed image, and then stippled white acrylic paint over top. Happy how it turned out. And happy I was able to save the pretty background.
CAS Mix Up is excited to have Marcia (Marcia's Stampin' Pad) as our Guest Designer this month. Marcia was our January Liquid Colours Winner. Welcome Marcia!
