HLS January CAS Challenge

Hello! Have you recovered from New Year's Eve yet? Perhaps you need a quiet day in the craft room? Well, we have great inspiration (as always) over at Happy Little Stampers.

Today is the start of our January CAS challenge.

Here is my card -

This card was REALLY fun to make. I made up a bit of a twist from my usual ink smooshing. Watch my video tutorial to see what it is. I call this 'controlled' ink smooshing lol. Is there such a thing???


Happy Little Stampers sponsor all the challenges this year!

Hop on over to the challenge blog for tonnes of inspiration from the team :)
