CAS Mix Up Challenge #1 & NBUS Challenge #6
I am so excited today, as my dear friends Loll Thomson and Bonnie Klass have started up their very own challenge, the . . . CAS Mix Up Challenge
The requirements are that it must be a Mixed Media CAS card, which I found a little daunting at first as I had never done any mixed media before, but Loll explained that I had probably done MM without even knowing it, and when she explained it . . . she was right . . . I had made cards that fitted the criteria! So, when she and Bonnie started up this challenge I was excited to give it a go!
First, I took a panel of watercolour card-stock and blended a few distress inks over the entire panel and let it dry, that took care of the watercolour part (I think), next, I cut two stitched rectangles out of it and put one aside for another project. Then I stamped the flower image on to a card base with a new stamp set that arrived today, Woodware, 'Dotty Flower' and heat embossed it, which took care of my second requirement and because it is brand new and unused I will also link it to Darnell's 6th NBUS challenge
The next step was to stamp the image again on to the watercolour stitched panel and heat emboss that too and mounted it on to the card front with fun foam making sure the two images were aligned.
I finished off with a small, sentiment from my Clearly Besotted, 'Sweet Little Sentiments' stamp set, taking care of the final requirement. To finish, I put a few random dots of white gel pen on the panel and that was that.
Here is my first MM CAS entry.
Thank you for stopping by my friends! Have a lovely evening/day. Hazel xx
