CAS Mix Up

Hello and welcome...

I'm waiting for my brother to come over so I have a little time to post my card for this month's challenge at CAS Mix Up

I have never ever used baby wipes in crafting other than to clean up - I was familiar with baby wipes and re-inkers but not the technique using gloss photo paper

What? Come on!!
Why didn't I know about this before?? Heck I wouldn't have bought those alcohol inks and Yupo... I mean the results are amazing and it's so simple!

I used 3 distress inks... Blueprint, Citron and Squeezed Lemonade and I love the shine!
I didn't stamp over it but I did add a few white dots and an impression die to give the appearance of those leaves being blown

 I stamped my sentiment onto Vellum using archival ink and clear embossed it - I couldn't bear to cover up those colours. I also dry embossed a frame just for a little more impact.
I will definitely be doing this again ... Thank you to the team for sharing this technique.

As always I wish you all a lovely day... It's still pretty cool here and we've had lots of rain but I'm staying positive Haha!

 Till soon
