CAS 201

I've been deeply mired in the craft room, making a ton of pretty trash, so when I saw the current Clean & Simple challenge:

I dropped everything (into the trash) and gave it a whirl. This is what came out:

 I had this idea to use some of my growing collection of Thickers for the sentiment, but it wasn't working for me. I used a piece of DSP from the SU Twitterpated pack, because it's mostly white and wouldn't give me conniptions about white space.  In the end, this one got a heart with a sentiment over the top.

I also tried it without the poppy layer, but I couldn't get past all the white, so it got layered.

This next one is a little closer to my original plan:

It's the reverse side of the first paper, and I decided those blue-green letters would work on it. I tried them on top of a white heart, but that failed me, so they got attached to the paper, sans heart. Again, it needed something, so I layered it with a piece of my precious Tim Holtz Kraft core paper.

It's still CAS, at least in my world, so I called them done. I also think I need new bulbs in my lamps. This came out really dark. Sorry about that.

I'm going back in to tackle a few more challenges. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. These are both wonderful but I really love the first one. That little red heart add the perfect pop of color.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
