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.

For this card I basically followed the videos that Joanna presented, doing a bit of everything to make them.  I matted them on the white squares with the stitched Borders and popped them up with Dimensionals.  I kept my colour palette to about five colours and put a bit of each on each Inchie.

CAS Mix Up Reminder - August 2019 - Paper Towel - Crocus Flowers

Hi there,
Loll is challenging us to use Paper Towel this month at CAS Mix Up and this post is a reminder that you have until the 24th August to join us and play along.  I managed to get some variation and texture onto my piece of card by spraying the water coloured Paper Towel and dabbing it onto this piece and also using a clear block.  I also dabbed some ink onto the inside of my card for some added interest.  I cut some Vellum flowers, coloured them with Markers and mounted them onto a layer of Whisper White for more strength.
