Gina K. Designs - "Stars" with gesso





For this ensemble, I decided to focus on CAS and gesso.  The stamp set is "Stars" by GinaK Designs.  Isn't that star border die so cute!!  It's by Sweet n' Sassy.  It comes as a combo with a heart one as well.  



The large star is from a stencil.





thanks for stopping by!

I apologize, right off, for such a late comment - usually I'm much better about getting around and seeing the submittals for our challenges at Opus Gluei! That said, this is a wonderful example of well done CAS. Which isn't as easy as some people think, but you do it marvelously. I think the pops of the red really make the sentiment stand out - excellent sentiment too!

Thank you for playing along with us at Opus Gluei, I hope we entice you back for more challenges with us!
