Happy Little Stampers February CAS Challenge (DT)

Hello everyone, I hope you're well.

This month at Happy Little Stampers, the CAS Challenge technique is
EMBOSSING FOLDER STAMPING - use an embossing folder as a stamp.

Our sponsor is Happy Little Stampers and the winner will receive one stamp set.

To make my card, I applied distress inks with a sponge to the raised side of a dotty embossing folder, spritzed lightly with water and pressed my card down onto the embossing folder. This was the first time I've done this technique so I was happy it came out OK. Added a stamped sentiment and flower and water coloured "hello" die cut.

I do hope you will join in - perhaps this is technique is new to you. We have some tutorials at the HLS challenge blog and lots of DT inspiration.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!
