Happy Little Stampers January CASE

This month starts the new new year and a new challenge from Happy Little Stampers called the CASE Challenge.

Here is Kylie's beautiful card to kick off the new challenge and the new year.

Beautiful, right?

Now here's my CASE of her card:

I started by using Ken Oliver Color Burst Powder in Ultramarine that my dear friend Marcia sent me for Christmas. It was so fun to watch the magic happen when I sprayed my powdered panel of cardstock with water. Too cool!! Then I used all kind of dots in different sizes and stamped them using Momento's Wedding Dress ink, giving it a Bokeh effect. Then I cut my dried panel using MFT's "Love" Die-namics and added the rest of the sentiment using silver embossing powder.

Be sure to stop by the Happy Little Stampers blog to check out this challenge
and join in on the fun!

Your CASE is gorgeous. I am in love with your background. Not only the fabulous colors, but the Bokeh effect is gorgeous. I think the die you used on your panel is perfect. I would have had a hard time cutting into my paper, if I had made a background as pretty as yours. Happy New Year!
