CAS Mix Up Ink Stamps with Markers Reminder

Oh My,  already it is time for our CAS Mix Up Reminder "Ink Stamps with Markers" Challenge
 hosted by Bonnie!

Be sure and check out all the gorgeous cards by our DT and
awesome GD, Chrissie (Simply One of a Kind).

Also wonderful videos showing different stamping techniques.

My card Using Zigs Markers, Stamping with MISTI, Die Cutting and masking.

I used a NBUS Stamplorations stamp Bloom Happy,  which
is wonderful for a Fall card. The image and sentiment are from the 
stamp set.  I masked the sending to keep the sentiment more centered.

I placed my main image in MISTI and then colored stamp with my Zig
Markers.  Restamping with 4 different marker colors moving
the ink around with my water brush.

Next die cut the image with my MB Stitched Die leaving enough
space for my sentiment.  Next die cut a scrap of SU
Pumpkin Pie CS for more framing and color.

Stamped sentiment, attached to main image.  Popped up image 
with dimensionals onto Pumpkin Pie layer.
Attached to card base, added Wink of Stella to flower and Done!

I like the Fall CAS look of this card.
You still have until the 24th to play along with our CAS Mix Up 
September Challenge.
