CAS Mix UP August Sprays and DTGD16

If only you could see all the Shimmer on the stenciled background and Crazy Bird...oh my!

Here is a Close Up,  but much prettier IRL...

My card is for the CAS Mix UP August "Sprays" + Stamping + your choice..mine die cuts, watercoloring, stenciling and doodling.

I already had the TCW "Aspen Trees stenciled background in  my stash.  I had sponged SU Old Olive, Pool Party and Dapper Denim onto Whisper White thick CS and die cut with my MB stitched rectangles die.  I just marker watercolored my stamped and Die Cut Crazy Bird using the same colors and popped up.  I used the next size up Stitched Rectangle Die to trace lightly with pencil a frame. Then used my art pen to doodle free hand the border.  Worked Great!

My card was also made for this weeks SCS Dare to Get Dirty 2016 Challenges.  They end tomorrow night the 8th at 11:59 P.M.  Here is the link to My SCS Gallery and this card with all the Deets.

Enjoy and Happy Stamping my friends.
