CAS 203 Color Challenge (1/14/13)

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



Back this week with some pretty colors! I can't wait to see a gallery filled with such a fun combo!

Color Challenge
SU colors- ruby red, kiwi kiss, bermuda bay, chocolate chip
(basic colors- red, lime green, turquoise-green, chocolate brown)

These colors may seem intimidating at first but give it a shot!

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

Check out these samples from our talented and dedicated Winter Design Team!

I made a card for this challenge which I feels fits the challenge BUT may not fit the definition of CAS ...... My personal CAS style is usually much simpler but I couldn't figure out how to fit all of the colors in a simpler way so......

At first I couldn't think of anything to do with this unusual colour combination, but I ended up making two cards using it:

Non-traditional Christmas Wreath
