Feather Weight

Hello All,

For today I am entering challenges from CASology, Color Throwdown, and CAS Colours & Sketches. I have had this die cut for quite a while and wanted to use it for just the right challenges. Well, here we are. My card for today. Enjoy!


Lots of white space and some colors highlight the dimension of the feather.
This beautiful feather goes so nicely with CAS Colours & Sketches.
I used colors only in the boxes provided by the sketch requirements.
An illustration of using layers as a form of defining space.

I thought about this design long and hard. My dilemma, is this considered CAS or not? But, the more I thought about it the more I thought, yes, it is CAS. So, let's push the limits. Here is my argument... The design is mostly white space with splashes of color and it can be recreated lickity-split. My thought, of course, were the layers. The layers are part of the CAS design by using shadow and texture to define space and not exemplifying the layers. If anything I think all the white makes it look cohesive and as one, hence CAS design. It is a simple clean design where the layers are used with CAS in mind. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.

That die is gorgeous, Shawna, and I think the white on white layering helps keep it CAS. The pops of colours are fantastic to. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

Shawna, for what it's worth, I think your card definitely fits our CC&S challenge site definition of CAS. :) I like the pops of color behind the cutouts! Thanks for sharing your card with us!
