CAS Mix Up July Challenge

Welcome to a new challenge!
Check out the Top Picks from July's Layered Embossing Powders challenge HERE.

I love die cuts and one of my favorite ways of using them is to colour! Watercolour is my favorite medium but I also like to sponge colour, or even cut them out of a coloured background.  I can't wait to see what your favorite way to colour your die cuts will be.
 I know they will be gorgeous!

Remember to keep your card CAS and include stamping, coloured die cuts
 and at least one other mixed media on your card.

  1. Wonderful inspiration and Susan's card is stunning. Thank you Bonnie for the fun challenge x

  2. Lovely variety of card by the Team and Guest Susan. Look forward to playing this time round. Thanks for a super challenge Bonnie.

  3. First time to play in your challenge. Thanks to Loll for letting me know about your July challenge. Great DT creations.

  4. Your cards are all stunning, as usual! I just realize I messed up this challenge, however! I read it as "coloured die cuts" instead of "colour your diecuts!" Oy, I'm getting too old to work here! I won't delete it because it will still spread the word, but I'll edit my post so people get the right information. Darn it, hanging head in shame and I was so tickled with my card, too! Darnell
