CAS Mix Up April 2020 Monthly Picks


What an amazing gallery of gorgeous cards this month.
Thanks to all that tried "bleaching" their images and backgrounds.
It's a wonderful technique that stretches the use of stamps, dies and stencils.

Our Top Pick for April
Bonnie (Paper Crafter at Large)

Bonnie's stunning card dazzled all the DT this month.
Gorgeous colours and fabulous masked design.
The "bleached" dragonfly stamped in gold with gold glitter accents is like a piece of jewelry.

Congratulations, Bonnie!

    CAS Mix Up April 2020 Challenge


    Before we start this month's challenge, we are saddened this will be the last
    challenge with Ros (Mikey's Mom) on the Design Team.
    Thank you for sharing your time and talent with us Ros!
    You will be missed!!

    This month's challenge

    Message from Loll
    This month I'm hosting and I would like you to use bleach to remove colour from your cards.
    There are a few different ways to do this.
    Check out the videos below, or use a way that is familiar to you.
    Have fun!

    Edited to add:  If you don't have bleach, try "bleaching" out your design using water (see Linda's example below).
