The start of a new month marks a flurry of new challenges over at Happy Little Stampers and today I'm here to tell you about the July CAS challenge. Here's the technique we would like to see used on your creations...
There are some video tutorials included over on the main challenge blog which will explain all about stamp kissing. It basically involves 'kissing' two stamps together before stamping on your project.
This challenge is sponsored by Happy Little Stampers and there is a great prize up for grabs too...
Here's my DT card...
I started with a white cardstock panel slightly smaller than my card base and sponged on a light blend of blue Distress Ink fading out from the bottom corner. I then inked up my butterflies by inking up the solid stamps and then kissing with a script stamp inked up in a darker tone before stamping on some white card. These were then cut out with their co-ordinating dies. The sentiment was stamped in black (I masked the 's' of the word 'friends' when applying the ink) and a white die cut leaf adhered to the corner before the butterflies were popped up on 3D foam.
