August CAS Mix Up Challenge

Welcome to a new challenge hosted by Loll.
Check out the Top Picks from July's Alcohol Lift challenge here.

Message from Loll
The is to challenge you to recycle those inky paper towels.
You can use your saturated inky towels to transfer some ink
for a unique and artsy background,
or simply use your inky paper towels to create backgrounds or die-cuts.
Lots of fun and a great way to make use of leftover paper towels.
