Happy Little Stampers - March CAS Challenge

Don't you just love it when a challenge theme is really helpful? Well the new one at Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge is a real gift - who doesn't like to use a favourite technique!

Well of course the difficulty here lies in choosing a technique when there are so many, but currently I adore the effect of alcohol inks on yupo paper and that's where I began.

Having created the magical mix that alcohol inks produce I decided to stay on the same theme with my image. I stamped, coloured and hand cut the dragon and then added a sentiment on a banner.

Stamps: MFT, Magical Friends
Inks: Ranger Alcohol, sunshine yellow, raspberry, pool; Memento, tuxedo black
Pens: Copic, BG11, BG32, BG0000, V01, V15, Y11, E0000, E42, YG03, RV000; Wink of Stella, clear

How about you? What are your favourite techniques at the moment? I'm really looking forward to finding out and maybe discovering some new ones to try out.

Huge thanks for your time today, I'm really pleased you spent some of it visiting my blog.

And keep crafting!
