Week 275: SHARP

It's time to look sharp this week in the gallery!  Clean & simple is the game!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

Let's see what the design team has created for inspiration!

Use a stencil to add a feeling of dimension without adding layers.
