Clean and Simple

Welcome Back!
Glad you could join me today!

Today I'd like to share with you what we have brewing over in The Crafter's Cafe!
So, grab your java, hot chocolate, cappacino or whatever your beverage indulgence might be and let me share with you about our new challenge which is...

"Clean & Simple...or CAS for Short"

I found this to be an interesting challenge as I don't usually do a lot of CAS cards.  
For some reason it intimidates me to leave a bunch of white space on a card!  LOL

So, let me share this attempt with you now...

My stash of Sympathy cards has been dwindling lately, so I thought this might be the perfect type of card to try out a CAS design.  I was so excited that our sponsor for the week was A Day for Daisies as they have gorgeous, clean hand drawings.  I chose the image Freehand Bird 5 to make my card.  
I wanted to make the image more like a decoupage layered image so I printed out the bird 3 times.  The first layer has been printed straight onto the card itself.  For the second and third layers, I just printed the image a tiny bit smaller each time.  The second layer included the head, wing and tail section, and the third layer is simply the wing on top of that.  I should have taken the time to take a side view pic of the card so you could see how dimensional this little bird really is.  It definitely added more depth and interest to do it this way.  The little birdie has been colored with chalks as I wanted a very soft feeling for this card.  I've added some blue sky to a portion of the card, again with chalk.  I love the softness and prettiness of images colored with chalks.  Lastly, I've added a Stamp'n Up sentiment.  I thought for not dabbling in this type of creation often, it came out ok!

It's your challenge now!  Don't forget to stop by the Cafe to see what the other DT members have created for your inspiration.  

Until next time...
