Eureka Challenge #51 - Clean & Simple


Happy Monday!  It's time for a new Eureka Stamps Challenge - the theme this week is "Clean & Simple".  

Honestly, CAS aka Clean and Simple is not something I was every comfortable with because I didn't understand it.  I loved the CAS cards I saw - but I could never make one for myself.  I thought CAS had to be one layer and with lots of white background.  As I continued through my card making adventure, I learned that CAS isn't just a one layer lots of white showing card.  One day it hit me over the head when someone said that my style was CAS.  WOW - who would have known!  LOL!!  So now I guess I understand CAS a bit better because it doesn't have to be no paper/embellishments to be CAS.  I can't say that I completely understand what CAS is...and maybe I'm still a bit off base with thinking that my cards are really CAS.

For this card I used one Eureka Stamp:  the image is Mallard.  I colored the image with Prisma Pencils and the papers are from my stash.  I decided to leave off any embellishments.  Here's what I came up with:

 
I hope to see you over at Eureka Stamps Challenge  - you could be this weeks winner!

Thanks for stopping by...God bless you!!!
