CAS Mix Up Challenge

Good morning... I hope you are having a good week

We've had a fair amount of rain this week, not that I'm complaining as it's still warm during the day and it didn't stop my GF's and I from meeting up yesterday for a lovely lunch and chat.

Today I have a card that I made for the CAS Mix Up Challenge

Another very clever technique from the talented Loll and a new one for me. That's what I love about these challenges...
So after the spray disaster I took advantage of all that paint and mopped it up with kitchen towel, let it dry, placed it over my piece of card and spritzed away. 
I also used a small acrylic block to press it down in places and got a few usable pieces, one of which is here on my card... 


I kept it pretty simple and added a strip of lilac vellum (not that it look lilac here) together with some die cut (left over) leaves. The leaves were cut from silver holographic card so they are really sparkly but of course hard to photograph


It's a great technique and I do love the effect plus I needed a quick birthday card... It's not that I don't remember birthdays, it's just that when you are retired, the days just come and go so fast and things creep up on you before you know it.

Have a lovely day my friends and thanks so much for stopping by

A beautiful card, so peaceful looking and I can see the lilac vellum, a very creative use of it too, I will have to remember to use it this way as it adds such a pretty softness! We have been having beautiful weather here too, so NOT looking forward to summers end!!

You're so right about retirement, my friend! I'm glad to have that problem rather than dealing with work--haha! The spray clean up towel transferred beautifully!

I'm amazed at how different the card looks from different angles, though all of them are beautiful!
