CAS149 - Sketch by LilLuvsStampin (12/19/11)
Next week there is a time in the time the challenge will be posted due to the holiday. Rather than being posted late Sunday night, we will post the challenge Monday morning. The time has been undetermined, but it would be noon at the very latest. Thanks for your understanding. And the team wishes you a happy holiday season!
What is CAS?
CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple.
It's all about the design.
* not the technique
* not the tools
* not the embellishments
It's all about the design.
* lots of white or open space
* one main focal point
CAS Sketch Challenge inspired by
DT member Charlene (LilLuvsStampin)
IMPORTANT: Please read before or after seeing the card: The challenge is to use the sketch inside the cool shape but it can be a different shape. I'm guessing most people will choose a simple round shape or maybe a square card.
Anything but the standard A2.
You can see her card in the attachment or by this link.
It's also great to add the keyword: CAS so that you're in two galleries.
Leave some love for our tremendous & devoted design team! Here are some samples to help you get started:
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!

Okay, I admit to being dense...but I am not sure I understand the challenge. Is it to use some kind of tree scene on (or in) a shape other than the standard A2 sized card? Is the emphasis on placement (tall and short) or trees (branches, etc.)? Or is it on using an unusual shape with any kind of image? I am not trying to be difficult and realize there is a LOT of freedom to interpret things, but I DO want to play within the spirit of the challenge---I just don't quite get what it is. Can you explain, pretty please?
Ignore my post above--after going through all of the cards in the CAS149 gallery so far, I think I finally "get" it. See? I told you I was a little confused sometimes. In fact, I use the on-screen name of "state of confusion" on another site I frequent. LOL.
Now that I understand the challenge, I have run out of time before having to go to work--again. I'll try to come back later to play. All of the cards in the CAS149 gallery are great! Such talented people.
