CAS Mix Up - November 2019 - Oxidized Metal - Christmas Pines

Hi Friends,
Welcome to November's CAS Mix Up Challenge, I am hosting this month and my Challenge is to use the Oxidized Metal Technique.  I only found one Video by Jay Soriano for this technique and thought it might be a quick solution for those last minute Christmas cards.  Jay makes it look so easy, I tried a few times and had mixed results.  The two colours Red and Green muddied easily but I liked the end result and used a couple of pieces I created for my cards.
Please note: Do rub the excess ink off with a Paper Towel after setting the colours with the Clear Embossing Powder, also blot the coloured foil onto scrap paper to help eradicate the excess ink.  I Clear Embossed again after I cut with the dies and this helped lessen the ink transfer and then used tweezers to handle the die cuts.  Also when the ink appears dry foiling might be an option to soak up any excess ink as in using alcohol inks, I didn't try this but I will next time I give it a go.
                   
Supplies:
Stamps: S/U's Christmas Pines
Card: Thick and Thin Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow, Real Red, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Poppy Parade, Silver Foil
Ink: Real Red and Granny Green Apple Re-Inkers, Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow
Cool Tools: Aqua Painter, Water, Big Shot, Sizzix Rectangle Stitched Dies, Sizzix Pretty Pines Dies, Paper Towel, Heat Gun, Clear Embossing Powder, Glue Pen, Dble Sided Tape, Foam Tape, Mini Glue Dots
Thanks for popping in today.

CAS Mix Up Reminder - September 2019 - Inchies - Light House

Hi Friends,
This is a reminder post for this month's CAS Mix Up Challenge which is to make Inchies.  Joanna has selected some very easy Video's for you to share.
For my card I made a scene  using bits and pieces from my stamps stash, I love how it came together.  The main thing for a scene is to get the scale of each image right which fortunately I had some mini stamps to achieve this and keep the lighthouse as the dominant feature.  The black mat makes the Inchies pop.

Supplies:
Stamps: S/U's High Tide, Postage Collection
