CFC168, CTS#211 and Happy Little Stampers

Hi, everyone!!!!!



Two cards to link this morning!!!!!!  First up is a card to link at the CAS-UAL Fridays Challenge Blog and I will also link it at the Happy Little Stampers watercolour challenge for March.




This is my card:




Inked up my butterfly stamp from Altenew, with my Kaleidacolor ink pad.  Spritzed my cardstock with water and stamped.  Dried with my heat gun.  Inked up the stamp again and stamped on the watercoloured butterfly.  Love the effect I got!!!!!
Sentiment stamp from the same Altenew set as the butterfly.  Heat embossed.
I didn't use the optional twist of smooshing, at HLS.





The second card uses the same idea of the Kaleidacolor stamping, but this time I stamped in black and die cut a butterfly from a piece of cardstock stamped in the same way as the watercolour layer.
I will be linking this card at CAS(E) this Sketch and the Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge for March. 


                                                                                                                                                          
                                         
My card:


Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.



I really like how these cards turned out!!!!  Hope you like them, too!!!!!



Thanks for spending some time with me!!!!!  Hope to see you again, soon!!!!!
