Clean and simple is a style I enjoy, despite having been more clean and layered of late, so it was good to get back to a CAS themed challenge.
If you put me in a craft room or a kitchen, I know what I'm doing. If you put me in front of a DIY task or some car maintenance, then I'm about as much use as a wet paper bag. Consequently, I'm often helped out of such situation by others - usually men - so it's good to have some masculine 'thank you' cards on hand.
There's lots of clean, white space here and minimal layers or embellishments. I've kept the colours masculine: Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, silver and black.
The cluster is stamped, using the oil stain stamp from Geared Up Garage. The cogs are die cut in silver from the co-ordinating set then given a tarnished look by being swiped over with Stazon. The tool box is popped up on dimensionals after the ink has been spread a little with a blender pen.
And done! The perfect thank you for all those little DIY and mechanical jobs.
