CAS Mix Up September Challenge

This is my second post today as I made a card for the CAS Mix Up September Challenge - Ink your stamp with markers.

Die cutting is my choice so I die cut the Reverse Confetti Stitched Square die and then stamped the image from SU Serene Silhouettes after coloring it with SU Chocolate Chip and Real Red markers.  I had a little boo-boo on the bottom two red birds as I got brown on them but it still looks o.k, in my opinion. :)
I placed the die cut back in the die and sponged some Bashful Blue ink around the edges and then matted it with a thin mat of Chocolate CS.  I mounted this on my card base with foam tape and then stamped the sentiment, which is an older SU stamp.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,

  2. Very sweet card JoAnn! Love the beautiful branch with the little red birds. A beautiful day with the light blue sponged sky. And great design with your thin framing of brown. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  3. This stamp is perfect for this technique, JoAnn! I love the red birds in the tree! The soft sponging in the backgrounds makes this even more cheerful! Love the triple stitched square! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Mix Up!
