Things suck

Hi crafters. What a week?

I have a card for the CAS stencil and CAS mix up challenges. The themes are heat embossing and acrylic paint. I have been wanting to use the Round in dots stencil from Funky Fossil for a while and thought these were great challenges for it. I found a Fiskars circle template the right size and sponged 3 greens into it with the lightest in the centre. I blended them a little with my finger before the paint dried. I then placed the stencil on top and pounced the embossing ink pad on top. I embossed with Simon says Stamp rose gold powder. I did some stamp surgery and masking to Honey Bee Blah Blah Blah and Prickly Sentiments before embossing with the same rose gold powder.
Here’s the inside:

Happy Birthday CAS mix up challenge! Thanks for all your great challenges and inspiration.

My choice is heat embossing
