The Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge ......

Hello again .......

How was your day?
I've got another blog challenge for you this evening.  It's Happy Little Stampers this time and  their CAS Challenge 

One of my favourite styles.  Clean ...... I do like a lot of white space, and Simple because, sometimes less is definitely more.
As you can see the theme this month is ....... Only One Third.  A nice and easy layout for CAS designs because it means two thirds of the card should be clean.

I've gone for the bottom third on my card ..........

A bit of simple masking, and some acetate smooshing with Distress Inks to create the inky strip across the bottom .......

I stamped the cute little gnome from Stamping Bella, onto a seperate piece of white card and die cut him using the co-ordinating die

I coloured him using ZIG Markers and then attached him onto the bottom of my card

The sentiment comes in the set, and has been stamped in Versafine Clair ink, and I added a few drops of glitter glue to finish off.

There's loads of time if you fancy playing along, the challenge doens't close until midnight (AEST) on 31st August.  And if you need some more inspiration then check out what the rest of the DT have been up to on the HLS Blog.

Happy stamping!

Thanks for popping by ....... have a great weekend.

Cheerio until next time .......
