CAS Watercolor, CAS Mix Up, SSS Flickr Challenges



Hi there crafty friends ~ For the past few days I've been busy in my craft room and I have two cards to play along with a few favorite challenges. First up is the CAS Mix Up July Challenge: Stamping,  Tissue Paper, and Your Choice (die cutting).


I was really inspired by a few cards that Loll made using the Metallic Tissue Paper Technique on This Card. Loll also created a video tutorial showing the various ways you can try this technique on your cards and layouts Here

The theme for this month’s challenge at the CAS Watercolor July Challenge is ‘Butterfly’ so I would like to enter this card to the gallery there as well.


****************************************

My second card is for the current SSS Flickr Challenge #75 for the theme "Black and White with a Splash".



I used SSS Stacking Animals for the images and MFT banner and scalloped circle.

That's it for me...Thanks so much for stopping by,
