CAS Christmas November Challenge

Hi everyone.  Welcome to the start of our last CAS Christmas challenge for 2020.  This month is hosted by the super talented Trina (Phamtastic Design).  And we are excited to have Vicky (Crafting Clare's Paper Moments) as our Guest Designer this month.  Welcome Vicky!

Trina loves to use non-tradtional colours for her Christmas cards and she wants us to do that this month as well.  I LOVE rainbow cards and I just got this sweet set from Lawn Fawn that was perfect for a rainbow card. :)

Stamped the image in black ink and clear heat embossed, then watercoloured with distress inks.  So simple, so fun ... and so happy with the results!

Close-up ...
I hope you'll check out the challenge blog to see the amazing cards by our Designers and special Guest Designer, Vicky.  Then come join us.

Another card using a new stamp set so heading over to the gallery at NBUS Challenge #20.

Ink:  Black (Memento); Distress Inks:  Fired Brick, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, Frayed Burlap (Tim Holtz)
