For those who don't know CAS stands for Clean and Simple. A real challenge for me as I normally like to add lots of embellishments and layers.
I like to challenge myself though to craft outside of my comfort zone which is why I love joining in with the various blog challenges. The challenge over at Simply Less is More this week is lots of white space, but it can't be white! Well, now I'm even more outside of my comfort zone. And I chose Basic Gray - not a colour I would ever normally use unless it were as an accent colour.
But I forced myself to use no layers - I used Pool Party and Mint Macaron and an old SU colour Summer Sun - yes honestly. I know these colours look nothing like how they usually look. The Basic Gray really soaked up the colour. A touch of Wink of Stella though brought them back to life and made them sparkle. The birds from Serene Silhouettes seemed to be crying out to be inked on top and with the small sentiment from Banner Banter I'm calling this card done - gulp!

I'm also going to enter this one into the SUO challenge which is asking for Cute Critters. Not sure whether these birds really are cute though .. do they remind us more of Hitchcock's film The Birds? I don't really have any "cute" animal stamps.....yet! You'll find the challenge here
