CAS Mix Up May 2018

Hello friends.  This month's challenge at CAS Mix Up involves using Gelatos or Crayons.


I have used both Gelatos and Crayons on cards before, and went with Gelatos for my card today because I had the exact colors I wanted (Pink, Purple, & Red).  My inspiration for those colors actually came from the blog header of my sweet friend LINDA.

My die cut is from AliExpress and I colored all 3 colors on the die cut frame, and then used a damp finger to gently blend the colors together all around the die cut.  I cut two more of the die cut frame and glued them together along with the Gelatos colored one on top for some extra added dimension.


My sentiment comes from PTI's Sunflower Harvest and I embossed it in white on black cardstock.  I also added a small pink enamel dot to add a small pop of color to the black sentiment banner.

For this card I used Gelatos, die cutting, and stamping/embossing.

This challenge is open till the 24th, and you can check out all the BEAUTIFUL cards from the DT right HERE for more inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
