HAPPY Shadows

HAPPY Shadows

Hey & Happy Holiday Weekend!

Yep, it’s May Day weekend here in the UK, which means we get tomorrow as an extra day to our weekend! As it is hubby’s birthday tomorrow too, we have come away for a little family getaway and our first taking the beans anywhere overnight!

We are staying in Wrexham ‘just’ in North Wales (also hubby & the beans first time to Wales) and then we are off to Chester Zoo tomorrow, I can’t wait and it’s already been a wonderful adventure with memories to treasure 🙂

Anyway, last night I had a little time to create and made this card to share with you…

This is an idea I have been wanting to get on to a card for ages now, but never got round to actually doing. That was until I saw the new challenge HERE over at “Less is More”.

LIM #326

This week the challenge is shadow and it was the perfect time to test out my shadow stamping with the large HAPPY from All Occasion Sentiments #2.

Having a MISTI tool is perfect for this technique and makes lining up & stamping the sentiment and images a breeze! I started by stamping the HAPPY in Altenew Parrot Ink and then off setting the HAPPY slightly and stamping in VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

I repeated the process with the solid square from Background Builders: Squared which will be back in stock on Tuesday – YAY!

Ok, that’s all I have to share for today, I must make the most of an early night away and get some much needed beauty sleep 😉 I will be back tomorrow though with the first of the Uniko May Release Sneak Peeks!

Until then, thanks for stopping by!

    I absolutely must try this, Bev! Love the geometric shapes offset – it adds real dimension to your CAS design. The colour combo is fab too. I hope that you have had a great day at Chester Zoo and a lovely family weekend. Thank you for playing along with us at Less is More 🙂

    Bravo! What a truly brilliant design Bev. Absolutely love how the green mat has been offset to echo the green shadows on the geometric shapes and the sentiment. It really brings the whole card together. Fab colour combo too. Hope you all had fun at Chester Zoo (my one memory of going there is my eldest daughter going rigid so I couldn’t get her into her buggy! ha! ha! Good times!) . Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
