Week 270: ODD

 

It's time for a new cue word!  You may find this one a bit odd, but as usual, it's open for interpretation!

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!)


Uniko Studio is returning as our wonderful sponsor and this week's winner will receive their choice of an in stock stamp set!  With a brand new release coming on October 16th, you'll want to go check out all the sneak peeks and inspiration happening over on the Uniko blog right now!

Let's take a look at what the design team & this week's guest designer created to inspire you!
