HLS Craft Retreat Cards

Hi, me again!

I hope you have seen my post regarding the HLS Craft Retreats? You can find it HERE if you would like to see the fun we had :)

I would now like to show you three of the cards that I made. I actually can't remember how many I made all up - I even gave away some of my light up cards to a couple of kids :)

Anyway, here are my cards -

Card #1

I really love how this turned out. This was a demo card using Black Brusho and a Stencil (thanks to Gay for the use of her stash). Once I had spritzed my water through the stencil to activate the Brusho powder, I flipped the stencil and got this impression. Love it! 

Challenges -

Card #2

Another card using the above technique but using rainbow colours this time :)

Challenges -

Southern Girls - Anything Goes

Card #3

This card is a design that I love (thanks Sarah!) and shows how to emboss resist while smooshing with Brusho powders.

Challenges -

Cute Card Thursdays - Things With Wings
Moo-Mania - Heat Embossing
Use your Stuff - Heat Embossing

Thanks for popping in xx
