April's CAS Mix Up Challenge, which ends in four days.
This is a thank you card I sent to my sweet friend, Bonnie. She had sent me a gift certificate for Simon Says Stamp and part of my purchase was this gorgeous die-cut bird. Thanks again, dear friend! :)
The background of the bird and strip along the bottom of the card is yupo paper with smooshed acrylic paints. A few weeks ago I made some canvases, and this was the leftover paint that flowed over the sides of the canvas. I smooshed several types of paper to use of the paint (card stock, yupo, mixed media). They all turned out pretty, but I think the Yupo is the prettiest!
I've really enjoyed making inlaid die-cut cards this month. It's not a technique that I've used often and it was fun.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
