CAS Mix Up Challenge

Hello there... Welcome to November!

It's the start of a new challenge at CAS Mix Up  and this month the challenge is hosted for us by Susan.

This is the last challenge of year so we are hoping that you will be inspired to join in.

To be honest when I first saw this, I watched the videos done with SU foil products which I don't have and wondered what else I could use to get that metallic look - I do have mirri card, silver card and silver paper and hoped that maybe I could get similar results using one of these... You know I love a challenge. 
Well I wasn't very successful at first.. The re-inker just ran off my card/paper before I could even add the clear embossing powder. Determined not to give up, I eventually got a result

 I added the re-inkers with water bit by bit, drying in between and a closer look will tell you that I still didn't get full coverage of the silver paper but enough to clear emboss and die cut the leaf stems. 

They looks so delicate and shiny that it was worth it in the end and all I added was 2 die cut triangles and a stamped sentiment.
Of course there are other ways to achieve the oxidized metal technique using cardstock ... Check out the videos on the blog and the lovely examples by the rest of the team.

I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Have a beautiful day
