The March CAS Mix up Challenge is up today! Loll is our host this month and here is her challenge for us.
In celebration of CAS Mix Up one year 'birthday', I made a birthday card!
I used sentiment stamps, smooshing using Ranger Distress Stains on watercolor , a block die cut, foam dots and tiny rhinestones!
I sprayed Ranger Distress stains - Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber and Peacock Feathers onto my craft mat and then spritzed with water. Then I pressed a panel of Arches Watercolor paper into the colors twisting the paper a bit.
The stains leave such wonderful vibrant color even when mixed with a little water. I added Tiny Twinkles to the base of 4 of the balloons for a little sparkle, matching the background colors!
I cut the panel to be just a bit larger than my Text Block Party Time die and layered the die cut over the panel using slightly thicker foam dots to hold it up off the panel.
I used two sentiments - the It's Your is from Birthday Cheer by PTI and the birthday is from Simply Said Happy by Avery Elle.
So please join us this month and show us YOUR smooshing creation!
You'll find lots of inspiration from the Design Team as well as videos of smooshing with different products over at the March CAS Mix Up Challenge blog!
and remember there are One Year Birthday prizes to be won this month!
