CAS09 - Distressing (4/6/09)
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.

Keyword: CAS09

This week we are adding interest to our CAS cards by distressing.
Examples: sponging, tearing, using a distressing tool, direct to paper with ink, crinkling the paper

Samples to help you get started with ideas:

Angela's Card

Carolina's Card

Susan's Card

Jen's Card

Great challenge, Jen. This one is going to be a tough one for me. I hardly ever do any type of distressing and I'm not sure why. I have to think on it for awhile and see what I can come up with.

I'm so behind on challenge cards, I decided to combine this great challenge with last week's color challenge. Plus, I'm really behind on the whole Easter thing, so I made two cards!

Here's one
The other

Yet another great challenge -- thanks a bunch! I've already seen a bunch of great cards!

peebsmama 04-06-2009 02:38 PM

My style is generally pretty clean, so I haven't done any distressing on a card in a long time. I kept it minimal on this card, but I think it adds to the softness of the image.

k dunbrook 04-06-2009 02:52 PM

Thanks Jen for another fun challenge.
