Addicted to CAS #90

Hello again friends and what a busy morning of posts I'm having and I hope you are
 keeping up. Now depending on Mr Blogger this could be my 2nd or 3rd post 
but either way I'm here to introduce the latest challenge at

Addicted to CAS

 Susan is our host for this one and she's chosen a fantastic, summer theme

It also happens to be the release day for the latest set of stamps from
Uniko which popped through my door just a few days ago so the 'full'
DT reveal, release and blog hop isn't until Saturday, 24th June although you
can purchase the sets HERE from today. 

Quite by chance the new sets are called Paradise and Paradise leaves and
in my imagination, Hawaii / Aloha brings visions of paradise to mind.
I'm not sure whether a Toucan is a native bird of Hawaii but I'd like you to
meet Bob the Toucan anyway!

The sentiments and images are all from the new stamp sets by Uniko
and the toucan is coloured using Zig Clear brush pens. I also used the pens
for my background sky with watered-down Wink of Stella to create a 
loose watercolour look which I kind of like. IRL there's lots of shimmer too!

I hope you feel inspired to play Aloha and there's plenty more inspiration
over on the main Addicted to CAS blog HERE by my fellow teamies plus
we have a super talented, cheery and happy guest designer joining us for this one.

Monika Reeck of Creative with Monika 
I'm sure you'll have come across Monika around blogland as she enters 
loads of challenges leaving lots of love and feedback as she goes!
