How's your week going?
Last night's poker game got off to a great start for me ..... didn't end too well though! (nothing new there then!) The least said about that game, the better ..... I was not a happy bunny I can tell you! At least the pizza was good though!!!
Anyhow ..... it's time for a quick reminder about the current STAMPlorations CAS Challenge
The theme is Anything CAS Goes ..... with an optional colour twist this month of .....
You don't have to use the colour twist to enter, and you don't have to use STAMPlorations products on your project ..... although it would be fabulous if you did!!
Check out all the details over on the STAMPlorations CAS challenge blog .... you'll also find more fabulous inspiration pieces on there from the rest of the Design Team.
I've gone with the colour twist on today's inspiration piece ...... lots of red!
I've used my favourite colour of Brusho .... Rose Red for the background. I simply sprinkled the Brusho powder onto a corner of watercolour card and then spritzed with water ..... aiming from the bottom up if you know what I mean ...... I wanted the look of more colour in the corner spreading out across the card diagonally
Once it was dry, I then stamped one of the blooms from Dee's Artsy Impressions - Blooming Buds stamp set ..... twice onto the card again in that bottom corner, and embossed with a clear powder
I then took a wet paintbrush and a touch more of the Brusho powder and added a bit more colour to the flowers to make them stand out a little more from the background colour.
A sentiment from the same stamp set finishes off the front .....
And a little more of the Brusho and another bloom complete the inside
There's still plenty of time to enter the challenge ....... you can have up to three entries and there's fab prizes for the winners. Go on ..... give it a go!
Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
We've got blue skies and sunshine again over here ..... still a bit chilly though. Let's hope it stays nice for the weekend.
Something else to look forward too ...... apparently it's only 99 more sleeps (not that I'm counting!!)
until all this starts again .......
