Here's my Design Team card for the challenge. I have stamping, markers, and several "your choice" elements (sponging, die cuts, and heat embossing).
I used the Local King markers in a variety of colours to colour my bird stamps. I stamped them on glossy cardstock and then sponged around the birds. I bordered the panel with black, glued on a die cut branch under the birds' feet, and added a stamped and heat embossed sentiment. I let the branch and sentiment hang over the edges of the focal panel to add more interest.
Our CAS Mix Up challenge runs until July 24 so get out some markers and stamps, and think of at least one other element to add to them (for ideas see the right hand column over at the CAS Mix Up blog). We'd love to have you join us but please remember it is a CAS challenge so we are looking for clean and simple cards only!
