Good morning, Odd friends!

Today I (Ellen) will show you something that’s a challenge for me. I’m sharing a ‘CAS’ card I made. ‘CAS’ means ‘Clean And Simple’. For me that’s difficult because I love making scene cards with a lot of sequins; for ‘CAS’ cards you need the opposite; a lot of ‘white’ or ‘negative’ space, maybe just a few embellishments and a smooth look.

To me, it seemed the easiest to start with a one-layer card. When I masked off some parts of the card I was able to blend the background with ink. After that, I colored the stamp and stamped the word “Merci” (from the Frenchie Gwen clear stamp set). Finished it off with three rhinestones and used a pretty paper from the Sunshine Sorbet paper pad as background.

What do you think, did I succeed in my Clean and Simple mission?
