CAS Mix Up August Reminder Card: Sprays


It is the 15th of August and time again for the CAS Mix UP Design Team to share our CMU August REMINDER Cards :-)



I used Stamping + Glimmer Sprays + Die Cuts and Zig marker watercoloring

I recently had my SU Hostess Club party and my hostess was sharing a really cute Owl stamp set and Die Cut.  I just had to stamp and die cut a few for future cards.  Could not wait long...within a couple of days I had made this really fun card.  My DH Denny LOVES owls,  so this card will be saved for him when he needs a...Lift!

I sprayed the die cut layer with retired SU Smooch Spritz over my Tim Holtz Faded Dots Stencil. Then popped up my watercolored with Zig markers owls,  which I had sprayed already with Shimmery Mist I had made using Frost White paint and alcohol.   Fussy cut the sentiment and popped it up.  That was it!  I quick cute card for my stash.

Click HERE to see the rest of the amazing cards from the Design Team and our Guest Designer Joanne.  You will be Inspired by their CAS designs using Mixed Media ;-)
  We would love to have your join the fun!

You still have until August 24th at Midnight PDT to play in the Challenge.

How adorable Nancy ... I am having myself quite the giggle as I am reading all kinds of things in to this beautiful scene you created. My imagination at work ... the little sweetie upside down - that is a he - no girl owl would let herself fall upside down from the perch!!!
