A Beach Scene with "Stars"

The new DRS Designs Challenge is to use stars.  Any kind of stars will work - painted, drawn, splattered, stamped, die cut, movie stars, etc.  I went with "star" fish using the new 4-in-1 seashells stamp. 


I sponged a little beach scene with some sand, waves, and clouds.  I used the DRS Designs Splatter background stamp to add some pebbles to my sand. Then I added the new Adirondack Chair image to the one corner and the starfish from 4-in-1 seashells.  I placed that layer on top of a larger die cut panel stamped with Lines O'Plenty Background and then sponged in the die. It still needed something so I stamped my base with the Script Font Background and added a banner made with the Woven Plaid stamp.  I sponged the base using SU! Crumb Cake Ink.

This week I made another beach themed card using the 4-in-1 seashell stamp as well - it was supposed to be for a CAS challenge at Splitcoast Stampers but it somehow morphed into a totally non-CAS card - lol!



Another super fun challenge at DRS - I hope you join in the Star Challenge with us.
