Clean and Simple (CAS) Challenge - 76 - sketch
So I haven't played along with the Clean and Simple Challenges on Splitcoaststampers for a while. I saw the adorable card by ravengirl that was being used as a layout for challenge #76 and decided to play along.
I realized that the layout would be an excellent opportunity to use one of my doilies (inspired by Christine Middlecamp and her doily project seen HERE) that I had made previously. I kept pretty close to the basic layout simply changing the shape of the desinger paper layer, the colors, and using the doily instead of a flower. As ravengirl did, I distressed around my designer paper which served to pull it together with my doily creation.
Supplies: Stamps- Wishing You, Polka Dot Basics II (Papertrey Ink), Watch Trio (smARTworks); Paper - Whisper White (Stampin' Up!), Winsom from the Ambrosia collection (Papertrey Ink), aqua paper (unknown); Ink - Jet Black (Ranger), Broken China and Peeled Paint (Ranger); Other - transparency, button (Hero Arts), white doily (Martha Stewart), white crochet thread, clear embossing powder (used to make the polkadot background as it was emboss resisted with the 2 ranger inks), dimensionals, sponge.
Well, that was fun for a change!! I sure have been prolific today ... 3 posts!! and I have a bunch more ready to go for the rest of the week. I think I am back in the swing of this stamping :-) That makes me smile!!
Have a great evening!!
