It's in the air !




This CAS card was made to be very minimalist.  It's on a 4.5 x 4.5 inch white card base.  I have used a set of polymer stamps from Craftwork Cards of grasses which I have inked with TH Distress Inks in spiced marmalade, peeled paint, mustard seed & fired brick.  They were simply stamped in a line.





I then applied a strip of some fine maroon velvet ribbon with double sided tape along the base of the grasses.

The word plate was made by stamping the words with Archival black ink on white card and matting onto some maroon card to match.  This was adhered on foam pads to finish.

Easy to make but I think it's quite effective.  This fits the bill for this weeks new challenge from the Less is More Blog challenge for week 179 the theme of which is 'Earthtones'.
