CAS Mix Up Challenge - June 2018 - Autumn Leaves

Hello Crafty Friends,
Today I am joining the CAS Mix Up Challenge for June, which requires us to Use Layered Embossing Powders.  I die cut the leaves and layered them together 3 times and then embossed with 3 different colours of embossing powder. When I embossed the last layer I added the Jewels (Mica Flakes, Gilding Flakes and Chunky Glitter).  I then die cut the branch and put my card together.

  1. Your encrusted leaves are GORGEOUS! Love all the sparkle and shine along with the beautiful colours Sue! Great design with the stenciled background. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  2. You sure are having fun with this technique. It looks fabulous on those leaves, great colours and the extra mica, glitter etc takes it to another level. Great technique, great use of mixing the medias and keeping it CAS. The softness of the stencil work in the background sets off those fabulous leaves perfectly.
