I Need Vitamin Sea



Addicted To CAS Challenge #137 is up and running with code word: SEA - a subject that is very dear to my heart! I am Host for this challenge.

To create my card, I die cut a panel of water color paper that I had previously smooshed with Distress Oxide Inks with the Ocean Swell Die from Memory Box. I loosely water colored the die cut with with Jane Devenport Markers. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Sail Away set, stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

Don't forget, as always, Happy Little Stampers is our Sponsor, and Kylie is generously awarding the winner with a $20.00 gift certificate to the store!

Wonderful and talented Claire of Life On The Scrap Heap is Guest Designer for this challenge.  Claire's awesome clean and simple style is so inspiring. If you haven't met her yet, please take a stroll through her blog. You will be so glad you did.

Please head over to the ATCAS Challenge Blog and see what Claire and the Design Team have created to inspire you. SEA-ze the day, and join us in the gallery for a chance to win!
