Week 350: WATER


We seemed to stump everyone with our last cue, so this week we hope to be a little easier on you!  There's nothing like a little water, whether it be as a beverage or something to play or relax in.  What do you think of when it comes to water?

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)



STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner $25 off their next online order!  While you're waiting, be sure and check out their FREE SHIPPING offer (US addresses only)!
