Spring Has Returned

CAS Mix Up has another fun challenge this month.
It's a new to me technique.
It is a great way to extend your die cuts even further.....
This is my card........

After die cutting the flower I scribbled on several colours with my zigs
and sprayed liberally with water,
I flipped it over onto watercolour card
and pressed it down three times to get the graduated look.

I used the original die cut and three more on the card.
Finishing with the stamped sentiment, splats
and heat embossing silver on the lower edge.
Thank you Bonnie, for this fun challenge.

CAS Mix up is also celebrating their 5th Birthday.
Thank you for all the amazing inspiration,
your friendly and encouraging comments
and all the techniques that I have learned and really enjoyed.

Inchie and CAS

The AAA Challenge of 'One Inchie' intrigued me.....
'Way out of my comfort zone' and it took me ages
and lets just say it wasn't the only one I did.......
This is my card....
I have used Lindy embossing powders with several heated layers for the Inchie.
The cute little wings have been die cut from vellum and heat embossed.
Several burnt before I got there !!!
I would have preferred the silver string to have been longer
but to keep it within the Inchie it got trimmed.....

I am always in awe of you clever and creative CAS crafters....
Clean it might be ....Simple ....not so much.....
I loved the challenge......Thank you.
Challenges I would love to join in....
AAA Cards - One Inchie (without the option)
Time Out Challenge - Different 
This card was so different from my usual style and way out of my comfort zone

Happy Birthday

 I have a vibrant Birthday Card today, using several Uniko stamp sets .....
They were one of the very first company's that I bought stamps from....

Very loose water colouring with Lindy Magicals,
stamping and fussy cutting.

I used the Flat Lindy's and the shimmer ones,
which have added a pretty little shine to the flowers.

I enjoyed making this Happy and Vibrant card.
