Clean & Simple

Eureka Stamps has a new challenge and this week it's "CAS ."  I have used this great image "15302 Tree" and I have done something a little different this week.  I used a masking tape technique.  So the first thing I did was to tear off 3 pieces of my tape, one for each color of ink.  Then I placed the tape over each ink pad and rubbed across it with a finger.  I made 4 A2-size cards from 1 sheet of card stock so I knew about where I wanted my color to be and placed the inked tape on the cardstock and rubbed across it with my finger again.  Pulling the tape off to reveal the color.  After the ink was dry I was ready to print the image.  Again I printed 4 images and sentiments in the desired area.  After cropping the white cardstock I layered it with the coordinating colors and no other embellishments.  I thought this image worked great for a lot of  different cards and I choose to do sympathy and graduation.   I actually made a dozen cards it went so well.  I used Stampin' Up ink in Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, and Soft Suede and the cardstock is the same colors.

Come join our challenge this week.  Thanks for looking and have a great day.  I will be entering these cards in the following challenges...
