2 Actual Challenges!

It has been fooooooorevvvvvvvvvvvvvvver since I joined in a challenge!  That said, I decided I was going to find at least one to play in.

Fortunately, I found 2! CAS(E) This Sketch #212, and CAS Mix Up.  [It really does help me with missing mojo by using a sketch.] - Well, let's call it 3 as this qualifies for Inkspirational Challenge #130; smooshing.

Now, this card might not be CAS enough [for either challenge], but that's okay.  The sketch gave me the base, and CAS Mix enabled me to play with a few techniques.  I started with a smooshed background using my Distress inks.  This time, I dried the inks in between the smooshing so I would end up with layered ink.  Yep, that worked.  I went on to cut letters [MFT By The Letters] in D2BA designer paper and adhered them on to some cut out fun foam for dimension.  Yep, that worked too.  And finally, I finished off the card with a cut out word from STAMPlorations It's All About You, and SU's coffee cup from Perfect Blend, with a paper pieced sleeve.  Overall, I am okay with this card :).

I'm off~ I had loads of fun.  Thanks Challenges!



Thanks for stopping by~

What a fun card design with those beautiful colors and that layout you created. Sometimes we need an advantage of some sort to get us back into the mood and get our mojo going again. Glad you found something that worked for you.

Yay for having time to play in a challenge and yay for the vibrant colours you've used. I LOVE the use of patterned paper on the letters and the paper chosen is so pretty. It all melds together so well in one card! xx

Cheering that you found time to play in some challenges! Truly beautiful, especially with the smooshed background! You do realize, however, that you missed a challenge *grin* Bring that coffee over to Inkspirational, where smooshing is the designers' choice technique. Guess you'll have to change your post title, too..tee hee! I'll be watching for you! I'm more than 'okay' with your card; I love it!
