Hi all. I decided to get going on the CAS Mix Up Card Challenge quicker, and instead of being late to the party I should be reasonably early this time..lol. The way the CAS Challenges work has been changed and the Mix Up, Watercolour and Stencil Challenges have been amalgamated into one and will rotate, so this month it is a Mixed Media theme which is embossed vellum plus stamping and at least one other mixed media technique. Mine has alcohol inked vellum on which I have stamped and heat embossed, and then die cut mats and dry embossed on the background layer.
I put the AIs on my glass mat and added some blending solution and covered a piece of pink Vellum. The colours were Watermelon, Butterscotch, Lemonade and Flamingo. When dry I inked the Chocolate Baroque A Heart Full Of Love stamp with Versamark and then heat embossed using WOW Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. The embossing powder did take up a bit of the AI colour when I heated but I do quite like that. I die cut the vellum with a stitched square die.
I then moved on to the background and cut the square with a Tonic Scalloped Edge Die and then dry embossed with an XCut Hearts and Kisses Embossing Folder extending it to cover the square white background. I finished by putting it together and then stamped and again heat embossed with the Opaque Bright White EP on to a leftover piece of vellum cut into a fishtail banner shape and adhered it to the card.
Thank you for joining me here today and I hope you will visit again.
