Best Wishes for Someone Special

Fun times at CAS Mix Up this month with celebrations for their 5th Birthday

and a super challenge from Bonnie
.....Die Cut Printing
Die cut my feather in thick card which helps with the ink, water and printing... and used Distress Oxides to 'smooch' ink the die cut  and then printed it a few times on the white card panel.  Then die cut another feather in white card and smooched it in the leftover ink... the indents on the die cut add some detail interest.  I added a stamped and silver embossed sentiment and then a scored frame and lastly some grey ink splatters and a few shiny silver gel pen dots (which you can't see- looks nice though as it matches with the silver sentiment).  Arranging the elements I thought the 'print' die cut looked ok so included it too.

Thanks for stopping by and a big congrats to the CAS Mix Up team on their 5 years of fabulous inspiration ... cheers
