CAS Mix Up September's Monthly Picks

What a wonderful gallery we had this month! 
 I can see that inking your stamps with markers is one of your favorite techniques too!
Thanks to all of you for playing along with us this month.

Our Top Pick for September
Sundaystamper



We loved how Sundaystamper used her markers to ink up this beautiful stamp
in autumn colors!  The placement of the flower on the die cut panel leaves lots of white space
to make her flower shine! The contrast with the dark green adds even more interest!
Congratulations, Sunderstamper
Make sure to grab the "Top Pick" badge below.

Congratulations to Cornelia, Cindy, Helen, Linda, Maura, Julie, Janet, Gwendolyn, and Sue

    CAS Mix Up September Challenge


    Welcome to a new challenge!
    Check out the Top Picks from August's Stencil Monoprinting challenge HERE.


    One of my favorite techniques is to ink my stamps with markers.  With all the stamp positioning tools available, this is easier than ever. You can add one color ink to one section, stamp and ink up another section with a different color.  It's the perfect technique for flowers, birds and butterflies, but 
    don't limit yourself to them.  I can't wait to see your mini masterpieces!
