Challenge #101 - Ombre

Hello there, CAS Addicts! This fortnight, we have a 'Technique' challenge for you...Barb is our Hostess, and she has chosen 'Ombre' for our Code Word! Happy Little Stampers is our Sponsor, and Kylie is offering a $15.00 Gift Certificate for the winner!

Happy Little Stampers was created in 2015 by Kylie (owner of ATSM and ATCAS). Kylie wanted to bring out a line of stamps that were useful for every day crafters. From cute to whimsical images, from every day to funky sentiments there is something for everyone!

For this challenge, we are offering a few technique videos to further inspire you:

Also, we have an incredibly talented and well known Guest Designer for this challenge...Vicki Dutcher!

Hi all - Vicki Dutcher here.  I have been stamping for 20+ years, and I still love this hobby as much as I did when I first started all those years ago. 

I want to thank the team for having me as their Guest Designer.  I had fun.

Vicki has created this fabulous card to inspire everyone ~

And now on to our team:

Barb (Our Hostess)
