CAS Mix Up Challenge - you're so sweet

I've been wanting to die cut alcohol inked (AI) paper with my favorite die set, Fantasy Floral, and I did this weekend!



I made a few cards using the die set and this is my favorite result. 😊



I used red/pink/yellow shades and gold for the flower, and blue/green/purple shades for the leaves. There are actually 3 layers of the flower, but I used only two of them. I tried layering all three at first, but that was too much because the AI colors were so vibrant. I thought there should be some space to breath.

Here's a close-up.
I spritzed a little blending solution over the flower.



I'm entering the card into the CAS Mix Up Challenge. I used stamping + die cutting + die embossing.


Thanks for looking!
