I have happy happy fun fun news for you today: I'm one of the new proud members of Happy Little Stampers CAS team! I think all the teams at HLS have new members (in addition to CAS Challenge there's CASE the designer challenge, Christmas Challenge, Mixed Media Challenge, Anything Goes with Dies Challenge and even Watercolor Challenge) so head on over to Happy Little Stampers to have a look of all that's going on! Lot's of DT inspiration on offer.
The HLS CAS Challenge for the month of January is
You do not have to use Happy Little Stampers products to enter but of course we love to see them in action!
In my card I've used a Simon Says Stamp stencil. I masked a circle, placed my stencil in that "window" and sponged two shades of Distress Inks through it. After lifting the stencil I still held the mask in place and lightly sponged the white areas that the stencil had left with the ink blenders I had been using. This gave me a beautiful tone on tone look! I stamped my MFT sentiment with black Versafine and that's all there is to this card... I attached my stenciled and stamped panel on black base and my card was done! I tried to attach sequins and enamel dots and what not but those of you who visit me often know that I never know where to put them so my cards are almost always embellishment-free! That's good for CAS I guess! :)
I hope to see your card in the gallery. Happy crafting!
