It’s been several weeks now that the SCS challenges for Clean & Simple* cards have been given their own challenge in the forums and I’ve wanted to participate in them!
(*Definition: A clean and simple card has limited layers and sometimes just a card base. It leaves a lot of "open space". It uses little or no embellishments. Any techniques should be the old standard everyday kind like sponging, distressing and piercing. Limit the number of tools you use. Any colored images should be small and quick. Don't go overboard on tons of punches and embossing. CAS cards should be easy and quick)
Since I am so many weeks behind, I have one card I made to incorporated Challenges 2-5 and to be sure it was STILL a CAS card while doing this was quite a feat but I pulled it off – somehow this turned out to be one of my favorite cards!
Supplies: Gina K Designs Bold Flowers Floral Frenzy kit coordinating Marvy flower punches (love ‘em!). Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss ink & cardstock & Gina K. pure luxury layering weight white cardstock. Kiwi Kiss corduroy brads. Accented small flowers with Copic atyou spica pen.
P.S. John took care of purchasing the Serenity in Stamping Domain for me and linked my blog to it. This should be transparent to everyone but I will now begin to use http://www.serenityinstamping.com/ when I refer to my blog. If you would like to note the change you can, but you will still be able to access it the previous way with the blogspot address.
In addition to that, I am testing composing my blog posts in Windows Live Writer – so far I like it!!
