CAS Mix Up #1

It was nice to get a little play time in my craft space last night, even better - craft time with my favorite sister. I talked her into playing along with Bonnie and Loll's new CAS Mix Up Challenge. She is a an artist so I figured she could handle it nicely.

...and CAS it is, I did a nice simple wash for the background in blues and greens. I used pinks, purples, yellow and orange for the little butterflies. Once they were completely dried I did a couple of layers of Wink of Stella for some added sparkle. I used my Zig markers for the pretty array of colours.

The panel is popped up with a piece of foam, I added the sentiment and a few sequins.

Thanks for stopping by,
