Make a splash for the Perfectly CAS Challenge .......

Happy Sunday evening .......

And a Happy Valentine's Day to you 💖  I hope you've had a lovely day. 

It's time to get the next Perfectly CAS Challenge underway ...... you know the one, where you have to use just one third, or less, of your card space.


We're on Challenge #12 and the theme for this one is ........ Splash

I decided I'd go cute for this one ..... 


I started with a stencil and Distress Ink to create the look of waves along the bottom edge of my card


I added a touch of sparkle to the sea with some fine crystal glitter ........


....... and then stamped my sentiment just above the waves


The cute little dolphin was stamped onto a snippet of left over card, coloured using Distress Ink and a water brush, and then die cut using the matching dies


He was then attached onto the card with foam pads to add some dimension.  I also stamped the 'splash', coloured with the same Distress ink that I used for the stenciled sea and then added a layer of Glossy Accents over the top to give it a wet look (not sure this shows well in the photo, but trust me it's there).

So, how will you make a splash for this months challenge? ...... can't wait to see your designs in the gallery.

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
It's take away and movie night for us, with the little man.  We're working our way through The Hobbit films (again!) ..... Alex hasn't seen them before. We're on the second one this evening .... lets hope I can stay awake, we're watching the extended version!!

Cheerio until next time .........
