Color Blocked CAS Sketch

I'm on a color blocking kick! The Splitcoast CAS sketch (CAS153) this week led me right there. I started by stamping my background using an acrylic block in Crumb Cake, Pool Party & Lucky Limeade inks. Then, I stamped a flower from Awash with Flowers & my sentiment in Basic Black. I rounded the top corners & adhered the focal panel on dimensionals. It really doesn't get much easier than that.

Day 7 of the Clean & Simple Card Making class focused on "Plainly White" cards. Julie joked that when people hear that, they run :) I happen to LOVE plain white and have found myself using it more and more. Actually I need to stop using it a bit so I can order more before I run out!!! This card is an ode to plainly white cards, a CAS stampers staple!

Stamps: Awash with Flowers, Elementary Elegance
Ink: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Basic Black
Paper: Whisper White
Accessories: Acrylic Block, corner rounder

Maureen, Your color blocked card look gorgeous. I love that technique, in fact I just made a card for someone this morning using that same technique. I love the effect you get from it. Your colors all go so well together also. Thank you for sharing.

Very nice. I think I like it more than Jennifer's emboss resist style. Also the color palette is lovely.
