CAS Christmas December Challenge

Hi everyone.  Today is the launch of the last challenge of the year for CAS Christmas.  This month's challenge is being hosted by the talented Trina (Phamtastic Design).


NOTE:  December challenge will run Dec. 3 - 15
Thank you!

I used an artsy star image, coloured with markers, spritzed with water and stamped onto mixed media paper.  A simple sentiment is stamped to complete this very CAS design. :)

Here's a close-up ...

I hope you'll check out the challenge blog to see the beautiful star cards from our Designers and wonderful Guest Designer, Cindy (Escape to Stamping).  Then come play along.

The challenge is only open until the 15th this month to provide time off for our Designers during the holidays.  Hope to see you in the gallery!

This is such a simple, fun, and artsy star card, Loll! Fantastic idea to use rainbow colors for the scribble star stamp! I would have never thought of it. Wonderful job of dividing the rainbow colors cleanly and leaving an organic feel.
