I once heard it said that clean and simple (CAS) cards means there’s nowhere to hide your mistakes. Oh, so true! What a challenge to use so few elements and use them well . . . without any product- or technique-fails! I’m not very skilled at CAS, so I invented something else: I call it SVCAS. “Sandy’s version of CAS.”
SVCAS cards often start out aimed at just plain clean and simple cards, but…they often take a left turn. A little more embellishing. A bit of extra ribbon. Some technique or coloring that pushes past the edge of the clean and simple purists, but for me – it’s as CAS as I get. And that’s what I have for you in today’s card!
I hope you enjoy seeing how I made this card. It’s an old technique but looks fresh using these Tombow colors!
Note that to give this even more of a watercolor look, you can spritz a little water on the stamp instead of huffing on it with your breath.
So….what’s YOUR favorite color combo when it comes to the pretty retro tones in this set of markers?
