CAS Mix Up Challenge - so grateful for you

This is my second card for the CAS Mix Up October Challenge!

 The challenge banner is:

This time I wanted to make something simpler and less busy than my first card for a change. I used Watercolor Paper instead of Bristol Paper. I liked the texture for stenciling, and the water droplets worked well on the watercolor paper.

I used stamping, layering two kinds of border stencils, and heat-embossing.

Thanks for your visit!

  1. This is such a creative and fun design Hideko!! Bright and cheerful colour combination. The water drops looks awesome. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx

  2. Beautiful CAS design, Hideko. I LOVE the layering stenciling of your 2 stencils with Fall colors. Heat embossing with platinum eb powder adds another beautiful mixed media texture. TFS my friend and joining us at CAS Mix Up...again! Hugs

  3. I love this swish of fall colors Hideko! So much movement in that pretty stenciling! Thanks for sharing with us again at CAS Mix Up!

  4. What a great way to use the stencil by layering them up and in such pretty colours. Creative and love the pop of gold embossing...gorgeous x

    1. Just read the ingredients you used and noticed it was platinum and not gold embossing powder ...still absolutely gorgeous xx

  5. I love this, Hideko. A beautiful CAS design with wonderful inking and water droplets.

  6. I love the orange/yellow mix of your stenciling, Hideko, as well as the pretty rolling stencils you layered! Wonderful placement of your two sentiments too. A beautiful CAS design! Julia xx

  7. I love the way you've layered these colors. What a wonderful design!

  8. Oh it's lovely! Super design!
