One layer card with Birds

With a CAS challenge ongoing at Craft-Room Challenge it has been interesting to see different people's ideas of clean and simple!    The challenge runs until 23rd January if you fancy joining us.

Checking THE CAS site 'Less is More' it seems maybe Chrissie and Mandi are also encouraging us to go back to basic CAS this week.   It's one layer week at LIM and the challenge is to include birds.

A5 card folded in half and one edge cut with the scallop blade of the trimmer.   Tanda stamp 'Cattle egrets in flight' stamped in DI Stormy Skies, the words 'Don't look for what you expect, see what is there' is a custom stamp Andrew made up for me.    Once stamped inked a paint brush with DI broken china and swiped it across the card with a slight upward stroke.    The fine edge of a dark blue Whisper pen used to underscore the stamping.

  5. Wonderful CAS card. I love the blue you have used. It looks great with the ink swiped across the card and blue is my favorite colour. A lovely bird image.
