When I showed my in-house critic the results he said 'Love them, very clean and simple. Less is more works'!! Ahem, for ages he's been saying that white backgrounds look too stark, and once I closed my mouth that was agape with shock, I now know he meant white backgrounds behind certain stamped images. And as for using CAS and LIM in his comments, I think that guy has been doing some blog-hopping on the quiet!
This is what I came up with, two cards with the matting card, sentiment stamp colour and ribbons switched:
- 6" square plain white cards
- Image - Hero Arts stamp from the Watercolour Petals set (fab set BTW!)
- Sentiment - Elzybells
- Blue and green backing card from my snippets (Yay!)
- Inks - Tsukineko Brilliance - Pearl Thyme and Mediterranean Blue
- Ribbons - from my stash
As I used snippets here, I'm entering this into Jules Crafty Snippets Challenge Week 34 - just in case I don't get round to making the other card I had in mind for this week!
p*ssing lashing it down with rain here today - nothing for it but to play some more, oh, and make the Victoria Sandwich cake I've been promising the Boss as a rainy day bit of indulgence. His kind comments yesterday deserve a reward!
If you're sneaking a peek at this whilst at work - your boss has just walked up behind you!! And don't fret 'cos you're as well off there as anywhere today, except your craft room I guess :)
Have a good day!
