Happy Little Stampers April CAS Challenge (DT)



Hello everyone, I hope you're having a nice weekend and enjoying some sunshine.

It's time to start a new CAS challenge at Happy Little Stampers and this month the technique/theme is Stencil Monoprint.

The prizes are $30 Happy Little Stampers gift certificate for the winner and $10 HLS gift certificates for each of the Favourites.

I have to confess I wasn't in the know about this technique but after watching a couple of little tutorials, all became clear!

To make my DT card, I inked a chevron stencil using a piece of Cut N Dry foam and two shades of blue distress ink, misted lightly with water and pressed the stencil down onto a piece of card. I die cut a panel out of that, added a butterfly coloured with Chameleon pens and heat embossed sentiment.

Please do check out the short tutorials and DT inspiration at the HLS CAS challenge blog and we hope you will be inspired and join in!
