Well, we're at the beginning of another month and that means it's new CAS Challenge time at Happy Little Stampers. We have another great technique challenge for you, here it is...
This challenge is sponsored by
and one lucky winner will receive this fabulous stamp set!
For my DT card I decided to go super CAS and I love how it turned out...
I knew this challenge would be coming up so while I was at a craft show in the summer I treated myself to a little gilding flakes starter kit by Honey Doo Crafts. It's got everything you need to get started. There are lots of different shades of flakes but as I'd never used them before I just went with their one tone gold, Golden Sands.
I stamped the bauble and sentiment with the mixed media glue onto some deep red cardstock, followed the instructions that came with the kit and voila....here's a closer look.
I then simply die cut the image with a rectangle die and mounted this onto my card base with 3D foam. I almost went for a black card base but I think the red and gold looks quite classy on the white. What do you think?
- Stamps: Marion Emberson Designs - Sparkling Christmas; Happy Little Stampers - Mixed Christmas Sentiments
