Am hosting another challenge this month at Crafty Cardmakers and for my second theme I have chosen Clean and Simple.
It's not that long ago when I dreaded doing these but now find them very 'soothing' to make - there's something about clean lines and no fussy stuff which makes a nice change when you just want to 'make' a quick card!
I chose as usual to make a card with linen textured cardstock.
I used a duster brush and inked a small piece of scrap card with Wild Honey Distress Ink first.
I then stamped flower heads and foliage in Memento 'Rich Cocoa' ink direct onto the base card, then stamped again once onto a white left over piece of the cardstock and once again onto the already inked piece.
With two circle nesties I cut out the tops of the stamped images and ran round the edge of the inked one with a sponge dipped in watered down 'Tea Dye' Distress ink to give a more definite edge, then 3d mounted both circles together lining up the design.
Aligned onto the card base and stuck with some 3d dots to raise it slightly.
The sentiment was also stamped in the Memento ink. I have long been an admirer of this blog and credit the owner with the inspiration for this card - well worth a visit - she makes some awesome cards.
Two great sponsors as always - hope you will join me again for the challenge this week - clean and simple, minimal embellishments, lots of white space - what can be easier???
