Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Over at Happy Little Stampers, we have a brand new monthly challenge. As well our our Sketch Challenge, we now have a Clean and Simple Challenge which is being run by my good friend, Loll Thompson. Thanks so much for your efforts, Loll. You know I love you :)

On the 3rd of each month, we will have a brand new CAS challenge for you. Each one will have a different theme. Here is this month's theme -

Easy! Create a clean and simple card/project and use watercolouring.

Here is my card -

For instructions on how I made this card, please watch my tutorial below :)

I really hope to see you join in with this challenge.

Thanks for looking xx


  1. I LOVE your acrylic block watercolouring techniques Kylie! I used your first tutorial when I made my team card for the new CAS Challenge at HLS. This card is so gorgeous with the combination of soft blue and pink with the dark, chocolate brown - wow! And I love the twist of using the acrylic block to make splats ... so much easier (and less messy) than with a paint brush! :) xx

  2. Gorgeous card, Kylie! I love the contrast in your color palette and your splatters are so pretty! Thank you again for the video...I'm definitely going to try this technique for my card :)

  3. like the contrast between the card base and soft colours of the watercolouring x

  4. this is gorgeous Kylie, I LOVE that colour combo! Thanks for the inspiration! Hazel x

  5. Thanks so much for the video! I never saw anyone use an acrylic block to add splotches so I learned something new!! Your card is beautiful!

  6. Kylie, a fabulous card and thanks so much for the terrific tutorial. It was most helpful to see the creation process and I will be trying your acrylic block Splat technique. Thanks for that tip too! Hope your New Year was grand, and also hope I can find some time to join in with the HLS challenges later this month. Big hugs & TFS.
