CAS Mix Up Challenge & CAS(E) this Sketch #234 - enjoy

The Alcohol Ink (AI) journey continues ... 😄
I made another card using the paper I colored with AI inks earlier this week.



I die cut a bird and cut a strip from this paper.


As I wrote in yesterday's post, I dripped the AI inks on the Yupo paper, spritzed with a lot of blending solution, and pounced the blending solution and the gold ink with a cotton ball.


Donna's sketch for this weeks' CAS(E) this Sktech is my design inspiration.




Gold foil sheet was too bright for the sentiment, so I heat-embossed a piece of white CS in Gold Rich Pale, and die cut the sentiment. I liked that the shade of the gold matched that of the AI's gold. 



I'm entering the card in the CAS Mix Up August Challenge, too.

  3. Fantastic design Hideko!! The pouncing with blending solution made for a beautiful and softer palette for your die-cut bird and side curve. Love that you matched the golds with the AI's and embossed sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!
