CAS MIx-Up and Inkspirational #130

I love smooshing so I'm glad there are a couple of challenges that give me reason to play around with it.  My card is for CAS Mix-Up and Inkspirational.
For CAS Mix-Up you had to do smooshing, stamping and your choice.  I heat embossed the stamped sentiment from A Jillian Vance Design and smooshed over it with Distress Oxides (emboss resist - my choice) plus I die cut with a MFT scalloped oval and added sequins.    Do you know how difficult it is to get a sentiment stamped straight on an oval?  Or cut an oval straight over a sentiment.  I thought it was even but now it looks like it's going uphill, not unlike my actual handwriting. ;)


In hindsight I should have done a birthday card since CAS Mix-Up is celebrating it's first birthday.  It's hard to believe that it was only a year ago that Bonnie and Loll began this fun challenge.  Time flies when you're having fun creating, doesn't it?  Happy Birthday and Many More!

I haven't played at Inkspirational in a while but they also have a Smooshing challenge so I'm sending my card there as well.

Thanks for dropping by.

  4. Breath taken away with your amazing smooshing; the depth and layers of your inks are so eye-catching! A perfect background for your embossed sentiment! From where I'm sitting, your sentiment looks straight (then again, I, too, write uphill, so perhaps that's my version of straight *grin*). Whatever the case, your card is gorgeous! Thrilled you brought it to the INK gallery!
    Hugs~c

  7. Gorgeous mix of smooshed colours behind your white embossed sentiment. I don't think I've tried to center a large sentiment in an oval. I'm sure it's not easy ... you did good!! So happy that you shared your card with us at CAS Mix Up!! It's has been a very fast year! xx
