CAS Mix Up October Challenge

Welcome to a new challenge!
Check out the Top Picks from September's Watercolour Wash challenge HERE.

Welcome to the October CAS Mix Up Challenge!
I'm fairly new to the Design Team and I'm excited to be hosting the challenge for the first time!

This month I'd like you to get out whatever stencils you may have or maybe make your own stencils by using one of your dies with acetate.

Then we want you to use more than one stencil on your card - maybe stenciling with acrylic paint, and then layering another stencil over that and stenciling with ink, or Brushos, or watercolor.

There are several great videos on layering stencils linked below to get your creative juices flowing!

Remember to keep it all clean and simple leaving lots of open space on your card!

Please follow challenge rules:
  1. Must be a card with a CAS (clean and simple) design (including open space)
  2. Must include at least three components listed on challenge badge
  3. Include link to challenge in your entry post
  4. When linking to challenge, link to your entry post
Thank you!!
