HLS May CAS Challenge

 Hi and welcome to our monthly CAS challenge!


There are many ways to interpret this challenge. 
You may instantly think of how to blend colours using distress inks and a blending tool. 
How about when you blend food or drinks (smoothies/cocktails)? 
Are you a coffee and/or tea drinker? Teas and coffee have 'blends'. Hmmmm.
Some words contain blends (consonant blends) where two letters are sounded as one - THanks, FLowER, etc. In fact, there are thousands of words you could use. 

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX :)

Our designers have wonderful examples to help inspire you -
