Happy Little Stampers September 2017 CAS Challenge

Hello crafters

As it's the beginning of the month it's time for lots of new challenges at Happy Little Stampers, and today is the turn of the September CAS challenge.  Here are the details...

And please don't forget to keep you creations clean and simple:

And, one lucky winner will win a $20 coupon to the HLS store.

So, here's my DT inspiration card for you for this month and I've used the HLS Thinking of You stamp set which is discontinuing and can be purchased right now at a reduced price, here.

On a panel of white cardstock slightly smaller than the card base I began by blending some Distress Ink up from the bottom corner, fading it out.  I then flicked some water droplets over the ink and blotted away with a paper towel.  I gave it a quick blast with my heat tool to ensure it was dry before stamping the script detail.  I then stamped the poppy silhouette in black, using my MISTI so I could re-stamp to ensure it was nice and dark, then stamped the main sentiment in charcoal ink.  I finished by adhering the panel onto the card base using fun foam.

Materials used:
  • Ink: Distress Ink - Scattered Straw; Hero Arts - Soft Granite, Charcoal; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Stamps: Happy Little Stampers - Thinking of You; MFT - Grand Peaceful Wild Flowers
