June CAS Challenge at Happy Little Stampers!


Hello friends!
It's time for a new monthly CAS Challenge at Happy Little Stampers. Sadly this will be my last challenge in this team but I want to thank Kylie and my HLS teamies for inspiration and wish everyone all the best for the future! 



Our theme for the month of June is smooshing. This inking technique can look stunning but can be a bit tricky too! There's several tutorials on this in youtube if you are not familiar with this technique. The HLS CAS design team has made fab samples for you, don't miss any of them, click HERE!

I used two colors of distress inks for my smooshing. I did it several times but kept on being unhappy with the washed out colors so I ended up sponging those same ink colors on top of the smooshing through a stencil by STAMPlorations. This look I liked and I love how this turned out in the end! I stamped a sentiment from HLS Simply Said Stamp Set and added a couple of small sequins to embellish the card.


Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you playing along at Happy Little Stampers

I'd like to join:

Simon Says Monday Challenge: We are going around in circles
City Crafter: Out of this world 
(I think my patterned smooshed bg could be either a galaxy or a starry sky!)

  9. Your watercolor looks amazing. I love how she in the lower part gently melts to disappear completely. I also love subtle drawing on this beautiful background.
