Friday Focus

Well if yesterday's mixed media was a challenge then today's CAS Mix Up challenge should have been a breeze! But no! I found this even more difficult and that's my excuse for arriving at this party so late!


So I've watched the videos and given it a go, but boy did I get into a sticky mess and I'm not 100% pleased with the result. Sometimes you just have to try new things!

I love the colours, that it looks so CAS and that the photograph doesn't show the glue smudges - at last a bonus to being a rubbish photographer!

I die cut the corner scroll several times, added colour using my Copic pens by glueing the bottom layer in place and colouring onto the card base through it. I then stuck the extra layers on and added glossy accents to the coloured parts.

Stamps: Uniko, Simply Said blocks
Ink: Versafine Clair, nocturne
Die: unknown, been lurking in my stash for years but may be Marianne
Pens: Copic, Y35, RV09, RV66
Glossy Accents

Thanks so much for joining me on this journey of discovery and learning. I'm so grateful to have had your company.

And keep crafting!
