How To Create a CAS Card with Mixed Media

 Hello friends! 
I am excited to share a project with you over Altenew Card Blog. 

 Mixed Media is all the rage, but do you know that you can create CAS (Clean and Simple) cards with these versatile supplies? Altenew offers wide range of Stencils, Ink Sprays, Washi Tape, Watercolor Sets/Markers... and Embossing Paste.  Pairing these with your favorite stamps and dies will stretch your supplies and creativity.  Today's CAS card will show you how to create with Mixed Media. I hope you will get creative and play!

Let's examine the 3 key elements in this CAS card : Geometric, Floral and Background. You can apply these 3 key elements as a formula in all of your designs.
Geometric: I started out with ink-spraying in the Watercolor Paper and let dry.  The Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray I used are Sunkissed, Warm Sunshine and Orange Cream. After running Gem Frame Die Set through Mini Blossom (with Metal Shim), you will get this lovely piece of die. I kept the middle piece in tact with a dab of glue.

 Floral:  After stamping the outline images with Just Jasmine Stamp Set in Delectable Delights Ink, I die cut the images.  I stamped the center of the Jasmine flowers in Antique Gold Pigment Ink.

 Background: With the Ink-Blending Tool, I inked up the bottom  of the card front in Milk Chocolate. I took out the Milky Way Stencil and applied Embossing Paste over it.  Once dried, I assembled all the die cut and stamped pieces.

 It is always fun and exciting to use Mixed Media on cards. I hope that you are encouraged to try out the 3 key elements in your designs. I would also appreciate if you can leave me your comment over Altenew Card Blog.

What a great mixed media card! I love the color palette you used--perfect for a summery feel to the card. I really like the addition of the embossed stars and the shimmer on the gold areas of the card. Very, very pretty!
