CAS and Delicious Doodles

The new Delicious Doodles Challenge this week is all about clean and simple. No added embellishments! I find this one of the most difficult types of cards. I always want to add something more.

This is the new Holly Sugar Skull from the pen of Teri who is Delicious Doodles
Starting off with a white card, I brushed "burnt sienna tint" pan pastel over it. CAS is about loads of empty space not loads of white space after all.
I needed a sentiment this is on the die-cut paper.

The sugar skull itself has been painted with perfect pearls for that extra sheen.
I did add a few swirls, highlighted with the same pan pastel. I couldn't resist it.

So it's bring those CAS cards to Delicious Doodles Challenges folks and show us how it's done - your way.

I'd like to enter this card into the challenge at
Through The Purple Haze - Winter Scenes optional animals or people in it


  1. Croms this is amazing! You'd never think a skull could be festive, but Teri's artwork is amazing! I love your take on CAS. The shimmer on the holly is beautiful - well done for catching it on camera cos that's so difficult.

    Thanks for joining us at Through the Purple Haze Challenges.
