CAS Mix Up May Challenge

Hi everyone.  I'm hosting the CAS Mix Up May Challenge - Splattering.


I splattered a piece of mixed media paper with yellow, orange and pink and then die-cut the tag.  I think it creates a fun background for the small spray of flowers and sentiment. :)

My CAS Mix Up card has stamping, splattering, watercolouring, heat embossing, and die-cutting.

I created a video on the different ways that I splatter.  I hope you'll take a few minutes to check it out.  If you find it helpful, please give me a thumbs up on YouTube!  Thank you!!

  11. Thanks for sharing your video. Now, I did know about the toothbrush, but like so many techniques, I forget to utilize them. (slapping forehead...) I may give that one a shot on a card tomorrow. Love your tag/card, Loll. Those splatters look so pretty with that sprig of flowers. Such warm and pretty colors. Love this. Have a good evening. Bev

  16. Containing the spatters to the tag was a great way to keep the card CAS, Loll, and those flowers are so sweet and colorful. The video was great and I think I need to load up my brush more when I spatter that way.
