CAS Mix Up Reminder and a Farewell

Hello and welcome

I'm here with my reminder card for this months' challenge at

You still have time to submit your entry and it's lovely to see how many of you have already done so.

To make this card, I partially stamped and clear embossed the Echinacea using distress oxide ink onto a square piece of card... It stays wet long enough to add embossing powder. I then used various shades of D/O's to blend over the entire piece.

Using the same method as my first card,  I took a little bleach and a paintbrush to remove the colour from the petals and leaves and added a little splattering too.

A couple of die cuts and an embossed sentiment finished the card.

Once again the team have created an array of beauties to inspire you... Go on over to the blog and take a peak.

Sadly this will be my last card as a team member, I have decided it's time for me to step down. 
I've been so privileged to have been part of an amazing team and want to say
A huge THANK YOU to Loll and Bonnie for the opportunity.
I will certainly continue to follow the challenges and play along when I can.

Enjoy your day my friends and stay safe

~ Ros ~

The blue tones looks wonderful against the white card Ros, and the bleaching has work well to make the flowers really stand out. I love the circle die cut you have placed under the edge of the topper. It is sad that you have decided to step down from the team but I know we will still see lots of your creations which is always a joy. x

Bonnie said...

I'm so sad you are leaving the team, Ros, but cherish the time we've had together and you as a friend. You are so inspiring and this card is a perfect example! Love the sweet flowers and the white die cut tucked behind the main image. A technique that I'm sure to borrow from time to time. Thanks so much for all you've added to the CAS team. xoxo

A beautiful CAS card Ros. I never knew you could emboss using d/o's, I must give that a try sometime. The bleaching displays very well on your Echinacea, and such a beautiful blue. Your die cuts in behind just add that bit of extra, which is why I love your cards so much. You have a great eye for detail. You will certainly be missed Ros. Take care,

Robyn Oliver said...

Diane said...
