CAS Mix Up March 2017 - Reminder Post

Hello friends.  Just a friendly little reminder that there's still time to play along with this months CAS Mix Up challenge. 


It's all about SMOOSHING this month, and I have another card to share with you using this technique.


This one I did a little bit differently, by using some SU! markers to put my color down on my craft mat, then spritzing with water, and smooshing my cardstock into it.  I used Island Indigo, Always Artichoke, Old Olive, & Certainly Celery markers.  Once it was dry I embossed in black my image from SU!'s Serene Silhouettes and then die cut it using a Lil Inkers Stitched Circle die.  I used the same circle die to cut another circle in my top white layer so I could inlay the smooshed circle and then simply added my sentiment from Clearly Besotted's Everything Changes.  For this card I stamped, smooshed, embossed, and die cut.  I think this is one of the most CAS cards I've ever made and I have to say I really like how it turned out! 



Don't forget that CAS Mix Up is celebrating their 1st Birthday, so play along for a chance at winning the birthday prize.  You have until March 24 before this challenge closes!  Play along right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)

  7. Love your card, Marcia! The greens make a wonderful fresh spring-like background for the silhouette of branch and birds. And it's perfectly trimmed down into that circle. It's been a pleasure having you as our Guest Designer at CAS Mix Up.
