Another rainy, gloomy day in Georgia! It has rained every day this week! I am in desperate need of some sun beams!
I wanted to share a card I created for the The Card Concept and the Pals Paper Arts Challenges! I loved the sketch and wanted to step out of my comfort zone and create a graphic, clean and simple card. Clean and simple are the most difficult cards for me. I love layers and bling, so this card is very different for me. I am pleased with the result and I hope you will enjoy it, too!
Make sure to stop by each site to see what the Design Teams created. Their samples are amazing! Lots of great ideas and inspiration every week for you to enjoy!
The first thing I did to create my card was use Pickled Raspberry Distress Ink by Tim Holtz. I applied the ink to the back side of the stencil, sprayed it with water and then turned it over on a piece of white paper to get the top panel. I really like this look. Such a quick and simple way to make your own Designer Series Paper.
The base card is white (10" x 5") scored at 5". I used Melon Mambo paper for the next layer. The gray triangle paper is from Heidi Swapp. I backed the watercolor panel with Melon Mambo, too. I found this THANKS die in my stash. It is from Taylored Expressions. It might have been a freebie in an order. I really can't remember. I cut a 1" strip from Basic Gray paper and clipped the ends to make the banner and the die was cut using Smokey Slate paper. The two silver brads are from Jolee.
Thank you for taking time to stop by my blog. I would love to hear your thoughts. Please leave a comment!
Wishing you a fabulous weekend!
