Make a Wish for CAS Mix Up Challenge

Hi and Welcome. Today's post is for the current challenge at
and my good friend Mac is hosting.

I started out by inking Tim's Peacock Feathers Oxide ink
onto my glass mat, wetting it and smooching
with a piece of plastic to try and get an ombre effect
on to acrylic painting paper. Unfortunately it isn't showing
up as nicely as it is IRL. I then heat embossed
my STAMPlorations Feathery feathers with
Colour Blast Deep Water Embossing Powder
and die cut. I then die cut the leaves (Kaisercraft)
with the same paper and flourish (Gina Marie)
To ground my die cuts I painted 
Colour Blast Shimmer in the same Deep Water colour.
Added my sentiment from the same stamp set
then attached my slightly popped feather and die cuts. 
Added a butterfly, wee bow from Waffle Flower
 and a pearl to the centre 
Just to finish it off I added some splatters.
Attached this to  my base. If you look closely 
you can see this paper has a lovely light texture
I thought added a little something.

Here is a close up showing the texture and
lovely shimmery embossing. 

My Mix is - Ombre Technique, stamping,
heat embossing, die cutting and painting.

Thanks for dropping in today.
Love reading your comments
