CAS Mix Up Reminder ...

Back again on Guest Designer duties with another card for the May challenge at CAS Mix Up. A quick reminder that you still have time to join in - so get out your card and stamps and have a go.  This month the theme is:

I hope that my card will inspire you to join in:

I stamped, heat embossed and water coloured the three peonies.  Trimmed the images and added a small scalloped piece of card to one edge.  I then added splatters to the card base with pink and black before adding some washi tape.  I grouped the images and adhered them to the card - one directly to the base and the other two with different heights of foam adhesive to add some dimension.  

I used:
Hobby Art Clear Peonies Stamp set
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
WOW Clear Embossing Powder
Distress Inks - Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry

I hope that you will pop along and check out the other designers cards they are amazing - and while you are there why not enter the challenge!!

  6. Elaine, I love the three beautiful flowers and the way you cut them into squares and layered them - wonderfully unusual! Great splatters and scalloped edge too. It was great to have you as our Guest Designer on CAS Watercolour!
