ASM - CAS ...

... Good evening!  It's time for CAS (clean and simple) challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  A CAS card should have clean and crisp lines, minimal or no embellishments and lots of 'white' space.  Now the white space doesn't have to be "white", it can be any colour.  White space is a term used for the area of your card with no stamping, embellishments etc.  Here's my CAS card:

The Best - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Uniko Studio - Explosion; Avery Elle - Handwritten Notes
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black, Majestic Blue
Dies: PTI - Tipped Tops
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Cuttlebug EF - Diamond Plate; Copics; Clear Embossing Powder

This was fun to make!  I made the ombre card using three shade of blue Copics and blending well.  Then I stamped the explosion image, heat embossed with clear powder and cut it out.  I die cut two panel out of white card and coloured the edge of the larger piece to match the explosion shape.  I embossed the top panel with the diamond plate embossing folder.  I added "OMG!" to the centre of the explosion cut out and finished the front of the card with a simple greeting.  I've left the inside blank.  I'm submitting this card to Inkspirational - INK#58, as Sandie's challenge is to make a clean and simple card!
