CAS Challenge #4 - Accenting with Dots
This week we are accenting our CAS cards with dots. Whether you use a piercer or a marker, they are great additions to bring bring balance to a card or highlight a focal image.

Yes: Piercing, dots made with markers that looks like piercing
No: Cuttlebug dots, dotted patterned paper, pop up dots (You can use these, but they shouldn't be considered your accented dots on your card. Use a paper piercer or marker.)

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.


Samples to help you get started with ideas:

Carolina's Card

Susan's Card

Angela's Card

Jen's Card

CAS04 Gallery

Many of you have been PMing me about the location of the CAS challenge. New challenges start here and then get their own forum when we see that it will be successful. I think we're on the right track! I'm loving this and I can tell you are loving it too! Hopefully soon we'll have our own sub-forum with the other weekly challenges ;)

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!

Question about the Challenge
Are we to only use paper piercing or markers or anything with dots? For example paper that has dots or a swiss dots CB folder?

They are dimensionals to pop up a layer. You can use them, but they shouldn't be considered the dots on your card. You should be using a piercer or marker to make dots.

Milawi 03-02-2009 07:57 AM

OK thanx Miss Boo!
Then this card is ok I guess. ;)

You can see my card here: Long daisy.

lisahenke 03-02-2009 08:02 AM

okay, had to make this before it escaped me. glad I did, love how it turned out. thanks for the fun challenge and TFL!
