CAS 187 Technique- Color Blocking (9-10-12)

Please keep the CAS challenges limited to cards only.
Thank you!


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

CAS187 Technique

There are many different ideas about what COLOR BLOCKING means....I just literally think it is "blocks" of color....any color! Go with whatever you think it is...Looking forward to seeing everyone's interpretations!

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

Leave some love for our BRAND NEW FALL design team! Here are some amazing samples to help you get started:

TrishG 09-10-2012 06:16 AM

I like the look of "color blocking". Great CAS technique!

I DID do color blocking on my card, even though it is really subtle and doesn't really stand out in the picture.

Thanks for a fun CAS challenge.

I miss you guys! 6 weeks since I stopped by here or made a card and I'm suffering serious withdrawal symptoms! DH has been very ill and is in his 5th week in hospital with no sign of him being able to come home anytime soon. I drive an hour each way every day to be with him (read, knit and doze!) and am very tired. He's had 2 surgeries, touch-and-go complications with kidneys and heart problems after septic shock set in, ICU and on a respirator, 14 units of blood transfused and now a wound that just won't close. (Infected artificial hip joint that's been removed but can't be replaced until the infection has gone.) He's on IV antibiotics 24/7 and is very weak and disheartened. It's tough. Anyway, I wanted to let you know that I've stopped by and seen all the wonderful CAS cards that you've been making with the challenges over the past few weeks, and I can't wait to get back to my craft desk when DH finally gets to come home.
