Default CAS09 - Distressing (4/6/09)

What is CAS?
The idea of CAS is to keep it Clean and Simple.

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.


Keyword: CAS09

This week we are adding interest to our CAS cards by distressing.
Examples: sponging, tearing, using a distressing tool, direct to paper with ink, crinkling the paper



Samples to help you get started with ideas:

Angela's Card

Carolina's Card

Susan's Card

Jen's Card

CAS09 Gallery


Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!


Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Great challenge, Jen. This one is going to be a tough one for me. I hardly ever do any type of distressing and I'm not sure why. I have to think on it for awhile and see what I can come up with.

I'm so behind on challenge cards, I decided to combine this great challenge with last week's color challenge. Plus, I'm really behind on the whole Easter thing, so I made two cards!

Here's one
and
The other

Yet another great challenge -- thanks a bunch! I've already seen a bunch of great cards!

My style is generally pretty clean, so I haven't done any distressing on a card in a long time. I kept it minimal on this card, but I think it adds to the softness of the image.
