I have made a card for the CAS and Christmas challenges to share with you today.
First, my CAS Challenge - Colouring card ...
I used the Watercolour Spritz Technique (that's what I call it) to colour my flowers. I coloured the stamp with water-based markers, spritzed with water and then stamped onto mixed media paper. This is the first time I've inked up with stamp ... so I'm heading over to join the fun at the latest NBUS Challenge.
Next, is a card for the Christmas Challenge - Holly.
I have created a CAS Christmas card that I made in only a few minutes ... gotta love that! :) I used a beautiful holly sprig die-cut that I borrowed from my friend Susan (Cardmaker's Garret). I die-cut the sprig in soft green paper and again in white, gluing them together to make a sturdy die-cut. I added a few red rhinestones for the berries, and then stamped the sentiment in soft green ink to finish the card. Easy, peasy and oh-so quick! :)
I hope you'll join us for these fun challenges. Our Guest Designer for HLS CAS, Riti (A Lil Piece of Heaven) has made another beautiful coloured card to share. Please click HERE to see her card, along with the reminder cards from a few of our wonderful Design Team members.
There's still a couple of weeks left for this challenge, so lots of time to play along if you haven't had a chance yet. Come join in the fun!! :)
