It's time to launch September's CAS challenge over at Happy Little Stampers, and this month it's all about ...... Colouring
We have a new challenge sponsor too. From this month, until the end of the year the CAS challenge will be sponsored by our very own Happy Little Stampers Shop
The challenge winner will receive one of the fabulous stamp sets from HLS
So ...... what are you waiting for .... get those entries in!
Here's a little inspiration for you to get you started .....
There's lots of ways to colour in your stamped images ...... use inks, paints, pens or markers, pencils .... the choice is up to you.
I've gone for pencils .... you know I love my Spectrum Noirs!
I've kept things very CAS, masking off the butterflies as I stamped, to create the continuous line across my card.
I actually started off by stamping my first butterfly across the fold of the card ........ and carried the design onto the back. I've seen this a few times recently, on Pinterest, and thought what a fab idea ..... looks so cool!
I then coloured in each butterfly using the pencils ..... nothing fancy, kept each one a different colour and added a touch of shading to the wings
I added a sentiment to the bottom (comes in the same stamp set)
and gave the bodies the Wink of Stella treatment. Sorry, this doesn't come across well in the picture, trust me it's very sparkly in real life!
You can also see I've added a few dots of white Enamel Accents here and there.
OK! OK! ...... I confess ...... these were a bit of a last minute thing.
The card was more or less finished when disaster struck!!!! The dreaded tiny spot of black ink suddenly appeared ..... where from ..... who knows, but ..... I wasn't colouring in all that lot again!!!
Not a bad rescue job .... can you see the black spot?
Anyway ...... to finish off, as always, I had to put a pretty butterfly on the inside ......
Need a little bit more inspiration ..... then pop over to the HLS Blog. You'll find lots more gorgeous ideas from the rest of the DT and, we have a Guest Designer with us this month ....... the very talented Riti (A Lil Piece of Heaven) is joining us for September ..... why not pop over and say Hi! you won't be disappointed!

Cheerio until next time
