I am not really apologising - it's just the title of my latest cards, so forgive me if I have tricked you in to reading my post. The thing is I have been dreaming and planning this design for over a week and have had days trying to get the design right - I nearly gave up !!
The problem with clean and simple designs is that they are really hard to get right and I admire those crafters who 'get it right' constantly. I am in awe of their work (I will not name names but I follow them).
Anyway, these are the first cards I have made which I think truly come under the heading - Clean and Simple.
I really struggled to get decent photos that show the true colours which are very pale, duck-egg blue and greys. I also resorted to showing both cards together as they are virtually the same with just slightly different shaped flowers.
I used the Shapeabilities Fancy Tag dies to cut and emboss an aperture in the white card and then I stamped the sentiment using one of the lovely Waltzing Mouse fancy phrases stamps on to the cut-out tag which I also embossed.
Around the aperture and the tag I applied a matching blue chalk and to complete the design I added clear gems and a stitched button..
I hope to enter this card design into the following challenges :-
1.SCS Challenge 99 - Clean and Simple
2.My time to craft challenge 106- Jewelled
3.The paper players challenge 14 - Clean and Simple
Two Mixed Media projects...
