My Turn at CAS-Fridays with a Mixed Media Card

 Hello everyone!! Once again it is my turn on the CAS-Fridays Blog with a mixed media card. I have been having so much fun smearing paste, flicking Distress Stain, and just making a mess. I feel so free!!! Below is a sneak peek of my card. 

Hop on over to my BLOG POST to see how I created this card!!

I thank you for taking the time to stop by today. Have a FABULOUS day!!!

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Reminder

Hello everyone!! I hope this finds you well. 

I am just popping in with another card for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #522. This time around it is a theme challenge-Oh Birdie. There is still time to play along!!! 

Below is the inspiration badge for this time around.


I had fun playing with my new Spellbinders dies-Sweet Birds on a Branch for my card. I used a combination of Copic Markers and Distress Inks to color them in. I actually screwed up two birds in the making of this card. I tried to put "eyes" on them with some Liquid Pearls and messed up. Lucky I made more than one set of birds!!!

The background was done by shading Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I wanted to make the background more green than blue to give the illusion of leaves in the background.

I added some white gel pen on each of the birds for a bit more detail. The leaves and the wings also have some Clear Sparkle Pen on top. This set was so fun to use!! The sentiment strips I pulled from my stash and am not sure who created them. 

I layered the strips on top of each other to take up some space. I love how this turned out!!! 

Hop on over to the Cupcake Inspirations Blog to enter this challenge. I cannot wait to see what you create!!!

I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!!
