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
