CAS Mix-Up...Inky Flowers..
Whilst I was looking at some blogs the other day, I stumbled across a link to CAS Mix-up.
I really like the idea and the January challenge was very appealing -
I chose to use alcohol inks as my liquid colour. I like working with alcohol inks, you can create such random shapes and patterns.
I decided I wanted flowers this time and these were really simple to do and I made a few variations, but this version was my fave.
All you have to do is take a piece of glossy photo paper, drop your ink on and blow on it through a straw to spread the colour. Simple.
I added the stamping with my sentiment (by Scraptastic Club) and in the flower centres (by Concord & 9th).
My choice element was the little black pearls to finish off the flowers.
I die-cut both panels using MFT stitched rectangle dies and I love how the small purple border makes the flowers pop.
I am hoping I followed the rules correctly and that my alcohol inks count as an 'art product' for the mixed media part of the challenge, no matter, I still love it and there's always the Feb challenge to master the rules LOL.
