Default CAS265 - Color Blocking with a Twist (3/24/14)

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 .
* Uncluttered
* lots of white or open space
* one main focal point

It's all about the design .

Clean & Simple

*********************************************

~~~CAS WEEKLY CHALLENGE~~~

March 24



CAS265: Color Blocking with a Twist
Once you have your color blocking done, add a die cut or punched shape to it.


This week's challenge was chosen by Mary.



KEYWORD: CAS265
It's also great to add the keyword: CAS so that you're in two galleries.


Design Team
Brenda (Benzi)
Doni (donidoodle)

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, showcase the CAS style and to get us stamping!

When I think of color blocking I think of Mondrian art so I went in that direction.

hey there! I haven't seen you in awhile.

No CASEing this week. Mary chose the challenge is all. We're color blocking and then adding a punch or a die cut to it.

Crazy busy week here, I'm sure no one else is in the same situation. Here's my card, with very subtle colorblocking - ombre style:
