Happy Tuesday peeps!!
Today I am sharing a card I made using the Clean & Simple challenge this week on Splitcoaststampers. I like how this came out altho clean & simple is not a style I tackle that often as I tend to embellishment to much.
The CAS challenge was a sketch inspired by the card shown using the color block technique shown in the sample.
I had never really tried this technique and I think most people do it by inking an acrylic block and stamping it directly on the paper, I tried that but really didn't like my results so I took a scrap piece of card stock and cut a square in the middle and used that to create my blocks. I sponged the colors into the opening using Marina Mist and pear Pizzazz.
I then inked up the flower image from the Stampin Up "Inspired by Nature" stamp set with some black ink and stamped it on the card stock.
The sentiment is from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set and is also stamped with black ink.
I matted this piece with some Marina Mist card stock and then added it to the base of Confetti Cream card stock. I added three silver pearls for my only embellishments.
Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and
