DT: Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge… water

Hello! A new challenge is starting over at Happy Little Stampers today for Clean and Simple with the theme of water.

So I decided to interpret that in two ways… with water splashes and with a boat on the water image!

Now let’s start with a reminder of the rules…

Clean and Simple design with one focal point, lots of white (or open) space and minimal layers and embellishments

So I went a little more complicated than I perhaps needed to but went for a die cut oval aperture with a frame and the image laid on the top, with the inking through the aperture.

Then the card looked too plain so I added texture by sanding some areas and the splashing water and ink.

I think even with the grungy finish it goes with the CAS feel though as I left enough white space.

The envelope I again did a bit of ink blending for the background and then stamped the image off the side.

Hope you like what I made. Something a little different anyway! The image and the sentiment were from a very old Creative Stamping magazine and I often use that image for masculine cards.

Happy crafting!

Catherine
