HLS August CAS Challenge

Hello and good morning! I hope everyone is well and ready for a new CAS Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers!

This month we are concentrating on 



I love masking images and in particular butterflies as you can see by the card I have made.



I have used the new Butterfly Birthday set from Happy Little Stampers. Did you know that we have our own line of stamps now? I love the butterfly set (if I do say so myself, wink wink).

For this card, I embossed my first butterfly onto watercolour paper and then used a post it note mask to cover it up and embossed the next one. I repeated this step until I had my four butterflies.

To create the watercolours, I used brushos in my paint tray and added the first colour (which happened to be purple). I dried off the first layer then added a puddle of colour to the edges of that butterfly and misted it with some water so it would run off the edges. I repeated this step with the other colours.

I hope that you can join in the fun this month! We can't wait to see what you come up with :)


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -



Thanks so much for looking xx
