The theme over at CAS Mix Up card challenge this month is to use Embossing pastes or gels and I have been thinking all month about how to make a card with it and still have it clean and simple.
And today it suddenly hit me… obviously before we had to leave for a day trip to Munich. But I managed to finish the card just before we left and as I used the colours from The Paper Players challenge, I wanted to post my card there too and it was ending in afew hours, so I’m writing this post in the car!
To make the card I first sponged through a stencil from Memory Box with Stampin Up’s Tempting Turquoise. I then laid the beautiful flower stencil from Stamplorations down over the sponged area and added gold embossing paste through it. I drew in the leaves with my Zigs Clean color real brush.
I stamped the sentiment with Versafine and the card was finished! Oh I added a clear sequin to one of the petals cause I touched it before it was dry and it left an awful mark!
So I hope you like my mixed media but still CAS card. Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think!
