Clean and Simple
I have thought about this challenge for a couple of days and when I started working on this card, I still wasn't sure what I was going to do. What is the challenge you say? Well, it is to use 5 of something.... at Speedy the Cat and when I finished the card I realized that it worked for my next challenge at The Paper Players where they are doing Clean and Simple. I started with a piece of textured ivory card stock from the Rubber Cottage for my base...I sponged several colors of Tim Holtz' distress inks on another piece of the same ivory and then stamped leaves from Gina K designs set Illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger called A Year of Leaves along with acorns from the same set.I cut them out and after mounting a strip of fresh asparagus by GKD and a piece of her asparagus stitched ribbon I used pop dots on some of the leaves to change the dimension. Except for a few minutes cutting, this was a quick and simple card to make.
Hope that you like it...will see you all soon!
Oh, I meant to tell you to be sure and look at my new watermark...I got it at The Doodle Pantry and Laurie did a wonderful job on all my proofs and was super quick getting it out. I also bought some of other images. Be sure and keep an eye out for my cards using them. Take a look if you have a minute. Thanks!
This card won as Headliner at The Paper Players!
