Join the new Clean and Simple challenge at Sentimental Sundays! Our new challenge starts today and is sponsored by 2CuteInk stamps – possible the cutest stamps I have ever seen 🙂
The DT were offered a choice of three stamps for this challenge (I’m glad I didn’t actually have to make a decision from the whole collection, I never would have been ready on time for this post!!). I chose to use Balloon Birdie, and could see the card before I even put ink to paper 🙂
I love clean and simple designs, they really are my happy place! I knew that I wanted to pop this cute little birdie on a cloudy sky background, but wanted to keep the number of layers down. So I traced and detached the image in the Silhouette software, which allowed me to pop him into a centre panel background with blue sky and fluffy white clouds. when I printed the image, I just had to colour the birdie and balloon using Pro-Markers. I wanted to create a little depth, so I printed another copy of the bird’s body and the balloon, then coloured them and added it to the card with 3D pads, along with another layer of clouds cut from a hammered card for texture.
For the base mat, I embossed a piece of white cardstock with the Darice clouds folder and popped this layer behind the main centre panel. The sentiment was simply printed onto white card and mounted on a layer coloured in with a Crimson Pro-Marker to match the balloon.
Is Clean and Simple a style you love or hate? Style does tend to divide opinions! Either way, whether in or out of your comfort zone, make sure you head over to Sentimental Sundays for a peek at the other DT creations and share your CAS makes with us – don’t forget the sentiment!
