CAS Mix Up

 Hello there 

Welcome to March and Happy St David's Day!

I'm thrilled to say that this month I am back at CAS Mix Up as their Guest Designer
where they are celebrating their 5th Birthday!
Thank you so much for inviting me and many congratulations on your success
 
 
I just love their challenges, after all this is how I got into water colouring and learned so many different techniques and this month's challenge is also a 'new to me' one

 
If it's new to you too,  there are videos up on the blog so please check them out and don't be afraid to give to a go

Here's my card

Clean and simple, using a square die cut and distress oxides in 3 colours


I used my own cardstock rather than watercolour and painted my little square die cut first with Worn lipstick, pressed it down onto my card, then repeated with Squeezed Lemonade, then Iced spruce. You can see the colours mixed in on the 2nd two prints, well...  I forgot to dry my die cut in between - I know! And it did of course get soggy so I die cut another square (along with a frame), painted it in the same colours and voila!

I am pleased at how this turned out even with the colour transfer.  I hope you will give it a go, the team have lots more inspiration up on the blog go take a look!

Have a lovely day and thanks so much for stopping by

Amazing card. It's like you have a direct connection with my brain. It's graphic with just the right amount of color, texture and pizzazz. It's obvious why you're our Guest Designer at CAS Mix Up. Thank you.

Such pretty, watery colors, Ros! I love your layout and the little framed square! It's always nice to see you at the challenge and especially to have you as Guest Designer!

Congratulations on being the GD over at CAS Mix Up this time Ros and the theme of printmaking with dies is something new to me too. I adore your geometric look with the overlapping squares and in such pretty colours and love the stitched frame with the die cut flipped on its end and watercoloured in stripes coordinating beautifully with the background, and a sweet sentiment on it too. A gorgeous card! x

I love your graphic and soft square design! The framed square serves as an anchor, and the sequins are the perfect shiny finishing touches!
