CAS Mix-Up for September

I finally got a chance to make something for the CAS MixUp challenge. Thanks, Bonnie, for telling me I could use food coloring with shaving foam to make my marbled card since I don't have any reinkers.  My hands got messy but my card turned out great and I have at least 10 more backgrounds I can use for other cards.
This background is the second one, before all the colors got really mixed up.


To meet the challenge I added the daisy die cut from PB (my choice), colored it with Zigs (second choice) and stamped the sentiment, also from PB.  Since I cut the panel in half I made a second card just for fun.

I just changed the sentiment and the flower, using blue cs this time.

It was so much fun to see what different looks you get each time you smoosh your paper into the foam.  Thanks Bonnie and Loll for giving us a way to learn new techniques and stretch our creative minds.

Thanks to you for dropping by to see what I've been up to.

Super sweet and somewhat psychedelic! I have never tried this technique, but some of the girls at SOS did it a few weeks ago... I think I'll have to find a foam smell that won't overpower the card, LOL! Not my cheap Barbasol!

Those marbled pieces are SO PRETTY Bobby!! I LOVE the bright colours and it's always great when you can get a two-fer, as Darnell says. :) I have both of those flower dies ... need to pull them out and have a play. :) Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful marbled cards with us at CAS Mix Up! xx
