Mixed Media Card Challenge #20

Welcome to the month of LOVE! In blogland, for certain. In your neck of the woods, I hope.

It's time for a new challenge at the Mixed Media Card Challenge #20...


Red and hearts. Surprised aren't ya ;)

Here's my response to that.


I've got red and yellow inks smooshed onto a piece of CS. Then a heat embossed frame surrounding a stamped sentiment (PTI Heart Squared).  Added the panel onto some Amy Tangerine PP and topped it with washi tape. A few sequins add a bit of sparkle to the flow of the smooshed ink and voila!

Stamps, ink, technique, texture... got it all. CAS and messy, callin' it cassy again, I am!

Won't you join us at the MMCC this month? Remember mixed media is about stamps and ink and adding texture, dimension and technique! Even if you keep it CAS.

Joining the fun, I am:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps and More - #178 Holiday (considering this a non-traditional Valentine)

I love how your mind works! You've translated a simple bouquet of hibiscus into something so uniquely 'Maria!' The smooshed red beneath the heart frame is spectacular. And I love those pretty sequins. Very soothing and lovely card. Love it! Bev
