Lots of Sprays




Jut a quick reminder of our fun CAS Challenge at HLS for June!




This time it's just, plain spraying. :)  ... no fancy techniques, no stencils, no resists, etc. I simply sprayed the background of my card with two shades of blue, cut out the three ferns with my Silhouette Cameo and sprayed them with two shades of green, and heat embossed the sentiment onto a strip of leftover sprayed card.  Easy, peasy card!

I made this birthday card for my friend, Vicki.  It was her birthday last month, and I wanted to make her something in her favourite colours. :)  Hope you had a wonderful day, Vicki!!

Come join in the fun at HLS and enter your CAS Sprayed card.  Use any type of spray (ink, glimmer, water), and join in.  We'd love to see you in the gallery.  The challenge is open until the end of June so there's still lots of time to play along.

Hi, Loll...first of all, I love your wonderful card. I think 'pop' is the word here, love how complimentary the colors are. 2nd, thanks for visiting my blog...I'm am totally embarrassed. I really can read but for some reason only saw CAS and your challenge blog is so appealing, guess I just jumped right on in. I will be back to play along sometime soon!
