Hello friends. Today I'm playing along with a brand new challenge from Loll Thompson and Bonnie Klass, called the CAS Mix Up challenge. This is a monthly challenge where you are using at least 3 different media mediums on your card and still keeping it CAS!
This months challenge is to use Stamping, Watercolouring, and your choice of one other element, and this is what I came up with:
For my background, I used Dusty Concord distress ink, Winter Wisteria ink, and Inka Gold Champagne metal glass paint and the "smooshing" technique. The Inka Gold is a technique I learned from Loll (HERE), and absolutely had a blast playing with it! There's a little bit of a learning curve involved with Inka Gold, but the results are SOOOO pretty, and I wish my camera (and my photo skills) did a better job picking up the glimmer of this product! Here's a closer up photo:
Besides the watercoloured background, I also stamped and embossed my flower image (Flowering Fields by SU!) in black, and then used my Aqua Painter to color in the flowers and leaves with Dusty Concord and Old Olive inks. I actually made enough background sheets that I made another card using a different flower image from the same set:
I thought about adding sentiments to these cards, but in the end decided to keep them as they are, and just use them as note cards. Totally in love with the way these came out, and will definitely be making more backgrounds like this with the Inka Gold!
This challenge is open for the whole month, so still lots of time to play! You can check everything you need to know about to play along with this challenge, and also see LOTS of inspiration from Loll and Bonnie, and also the other players, all right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!! :0)
