CAS Mix Up - January 2017

Hello friends.  Playing along with the January CAS Mix Up, where this month the challenge is to use something liquid.


I chose to work with Alcohol Inks as my liquid, and here's what I came up with:


I love pinks and reds together, and used Raspberry, Watermelon, & Red Pepper Alcohol inks on Yupo paper to create my liquid color piece.  I added a Fuchsia die cut (Memory Box) and left it white so it would pop against the colorful background.   I used a SSS Stacked Hearts die cut in white to keep my background CAS but yet still adding some dimension and interest.  For my sentiment I die cut the word Love from PTI's Inspired: Love set in black and then stamped the "you" in black at the bottom of the card. 

Lots of beautiful cards from the DT and in the gallery for inspiration in this months challenge...you can check it all out HERE.

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

  2. WOW ... LOVE the bright colours of your AI panel. Pink and reds look amazing together. The white fuchsia does really pop against the bright colours. I have that die ... it's one of my big stack of NBUS. :) The added dimension from your dry embossed heart background is just the perfect addition. GREAT CAS Mixed media card Marcia. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! Don't forget to add it to our gallery! xx
