Happy Little Stampers September 2016 CAS Challenge

Hi there

As it's the beginning of another month Happy Little Stampers have started their monthly flurry of new challenges and today marks the start of September's CAS Challenge.

Every month we have a new technique we would like you to use on your clean and simple creations and this month we would like to see...

There are some video tutorials over on the challenge blog to give you some inspiration.

This month's challenge is once again sponsored by Happy Little Stampers

My DT card is actually a card I made at the Happy Little Stampers Craft Retreat which took place just over a month ago (where on earth does the time go, only seems like yesterday I was getting very inky with some lovely crafty pals!)

I used Brusho colours to create this card...

On some watercolour cardstock I sprinkled some Brushos in Leaf Green and Lemon, spritzed with water and left it to dry.  I then die cut two ivy sprigs from the panel.  The butterfly was taken from another piece of cardstock created with Brushos but for that background I sprinkled the Brushos in Purple onto a craft sheet, spritzed that with water and then smooshed my cardstock into it.  I took a panel of white cardstock and created some splatters with a mix of Distress Ink and water, then adhered my die cuts.  The sentiment was heat embossed in white onto some black cardstock and adhered to the panel before the main panel was popped up on 3D foam.

Materials used:

  • Ink: Brusho - Leaf Green, Lemon, Purple; Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean; VersaMark
  • Dies:Britannia Dies - Small Ivy; Clearly Besotted - Butterfly Duo Die Collection
  • Stamp: Happy Little Stampers - Mix Mash
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White
