Shopping our Stash #199 - Opposite Day!


This week at Shopping our Stash we have a challenge that I found quite difficult - create something outside your usual style. Ack! We all have our comfort zones - and they are comfortable. We like it there. After dithering around for a while I decided the least-like-me thing to do would be to create a clean and graphic card. No splashes of colour. No embellishments. (yes, I'm feeling itchy thinking about it again). 


Supplies: stamps from PTI; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; black Sharpie for border

I masked off the sentiment frame to stamp the circles & splotches - but this is quite probably the simplest design I've ever made. I so admire those that comfortably and flawlessly execute CAS cards but usually that's not me ;)

So what kind of opposite day projects do my teammates have to share? Check out the SOS crew: 


And you have until Monday,May 4th to come play!
xoxo,
Jessi

Wonderful job, Jessi! I'm beginning to wonder if the idea of making a CAS or Fru Fru card isn't what made me sick! :D) You should do more CAS!

(And no buttons! :D)
It may be outside your usual style, but it is an awesome card! Nice masking work, too.
