SOS199 - CAS Thanks

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called Opposite Day and we want everyone to try something that's opposite of their usual style.
I usually don't make these super clean and simple cards - but now I forced myself to not add any embellishments other than washi tape (which is also out of my comfort zone).
The sentiment (from this year SU sale-a-bration brochure) was embossed with clear EP and the I colorwashed the background using pool party and pistachio pudding inks. Then I colored in the word with aquapainter and more concentrated Pool Party ink. The papers are also pool party and pistachio pudding.

This is great, Alicia! I can't do CAS! Every time I try it turns out "butt ugly." I love your awesome use of color. It gives your creation a very strong voice!
