The Caardvarks challenge this week is being sponsored by Hero Arts and the challenge is Clean and Simple. So that started me thinking about what is "clean and simple" and I think that is going to vary from person to person. I was looking at the cards that their design team did and they are all great and they do vary a lot.
And this is my interpretation.
On an A2 size kraft card, stamped and embossed the floral image on the bottom corner. Colored with white prismacolor pencil and used a low odor solvent to blend the pencil. Cut out around the bottom of the flower.
I have two layers on this card but only because when I first stamped the sentiment it was crooked. So I stamped it again on another piece of card stock and cut out to layer over the crooked one. So a little less clean and simple than I would have liked, but the card was saved :).
Because I cut out around the flower on the bottom I wanted something subtle on the back on the inside of the card so I used a white dye ink and stamped the large canvas stripe. It turned out light enough that the inside message can be stamped and the background won't be overpowering. And this is a picture that shows how the card looks closed.
Hope you like my interpretation. And I would love to hear from you about what "clean and simple" means to you. Check out the challenge and join in for some fun and a chance to win some great prizes from Hero.
Thanks for visiting :)
