Week 50: FREE

Are you free to play along with us this week?  We hope so because we're going to see what happens when you're given FREE for a cue word!  No, we're not really doing an "anything goes" challenge.  We're curious to see what this word means to you when you think of it's definition and synonyms!  For some of you, it may remind you of an upcoming holiday!  For others, it may bring to mind something entirely different!

Let's see what this word brings to mind for the design team and this week's guest designer!

Guest Designer:  Vicky

Shadow Stamping and the Rock & Roll technique are great ways to add dimension
without adding layers.

Try a new technique like water colour for your clean and simple card!

Use diagonal lines to add interest to a simple design.

Simple image + simple sentiment = CAS design.

Using a small frame grounds images so that they are not lost in the white space.
