CAS Mix Up - Honorable Mention

Hello! I made a couple of cards, with CAS and watercolor washes in mind and using an autumn color palette –


For my first card, I went with the traditional full panel wash, after with I added a few splatters on the wet watercolor. Once it dried, I trimmed it a bit, then stamped the leaves from Simon Says Stamp Look for the Miracles. The sentiment comes from WPlus9 Happy Mail. I mounted this panel along with a black one underneath on a kraft card base using double sided tape, making it a pretty flat card.

For my second card, I went a bit more modern. I made the wash look more like brushstrokes, but went with the same color combination. Once this dried, I stamped the little images from Simon Says Stamp Nutty For You, along with the sentiment, from the same stamp set. I then die cut the panel using a die from My Favorite Things Blueprints 27, then mounted it on the card base.

  4. Hi, Ashwini! What a beautiful duet of cards! The colors are absolutely scrumptious and you made them pop even more with the black stamping! Happy Fall! …at least in your creative life :).

  5. what wonderful bright fall colors on both of your backgrounds! I think I favor the partially dripped one with the silhouette stamping – but they are both beautiful! thanks for joining us in the CAS Mix Up challenge Ashwini! Julia xx
