CAS13 - It's A Sketch! (5/4/09)
What is CAS?
CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple.

There has been some discussion on threads in the general stamping forum about the definition of clean and simple. Here is what I have learned from it…

There are different ways people view CAS. It is very subjective. There is no list of rules that will fit everyone’s personal definition. The following are possible guidelines, only. Please do not feel afraid of playing in the CAS challenge or debate with yourself if you’ve created a CAS card. If it is a CAS card to you, put CAS in the keyword box.

1. Clean: the design is uncluttered with lots of white or open space. Simple: having a clear focal point without a lot going on to detract from it.

2. simple in design regardless of the number of embellishments or how long it takes to color, stitch or to use a special technique

3. can be copied and mass produced fairly quickly… usually without a lot of coloring, layers, embellishments, tools and/or techniques

4. any combination of the above ;)


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

Adventures in stamping... It took me 3 tries to get this sketch right. :rolleyes:

Here are my first 2 tries. (I need to be careful about the size of my circles!) ;)
