Simplicity

This past week Joanne was our hostess at Stampotique Designer's Challenge and she gave us the theme Clean and Simple (CAS). She is the queen of CAS and does such a fantastic job. What do we mean by CAS? Minimalistic designs, empty spaces. Some people find this style difficult (like I did), but it can be very cleansing artistically so give it a try.
 
This was my 3rd try at created a CAS card, my other 2 attempts had too many layers on them to be considered CAS. I decided I really needed to simplify my card and so I swiped my ink spots against my paper.  I kept is very simple on this card and I really liked how it turned out.
