Happy Little Stampers ..... CAS Challenge

Hello again .........

The start of a new month is always fun ......... lots of new challenge themes.  I've got another CAS one for you this evening and there's colour involved again.

It's time to launch this month's HLS CAS Challenge, and the theme for February is .......


As with all Happy Little Stampers Challenges ...... it's sponsored by the HLS Store .....

and the winner will receive a $15 discount voucher to spend on HLS goodies.
What are you waiting for ... get stamping!

I've been playing with my Brushos and a little bit of white embossing ..... I love this look.

I stamped the flowers (from the HLS Doodled Flowers) using Versamark ink and then heat embossed with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. I did a little bit of masking along the way to build up the design

I then sprinkled over the top with a blue Brusho pigment powder .... sorry I didn't check which shade it was but I think it might have been Ultra Marine Blue, because of the purple shades in there.  Yes it was just the one pot of Brusho that I used ..... I love how there's different shades in each colour and depending on how much water you spritz depends on how the colours mix ...... gorgeous!

I used the same Brusho ..... this time I actually mixed the pigment with water, and applied it with a paint brush to add more colour to the centre flower.
A few sequins added to the centres of the flowers give the design a touch of sparkle and a simple embossed greeting finishes off the card nicely.

Now it's your turn ..... can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.

Cheerio until next time .....
