FTL #113

It's been ages since I took part in a Clean & Simple sketch challenge! Apologies for the crummy photo, I haven't the time to take another until later in the week but I'll try for a better one.

The flowers were stamped in Whisper White ink and coloured in using copics, an idea that came from Nichole Heady (3rd card down). I originally planned on using PTI's Linen & Canvas impression plate, but accidentally used one that was already on the Big Shot from a previous card. I only realized it was the wrong plate when it was about half-way through! D'oh! There wasn't time to make another, so I stuck with it. Thanks for stopping by!

One layer card

Hello everyone! Apologies for not updating the blog for a while, I've been a bit lazy! However, I've made lots of stuff, and I'll slowly start posting them.

I absolutely LOVE some of the new Stampin' Up! colours, notably Daffodil Delight and Peach Parfait. I still think the names are corny, though. :) I teamed Daffodil and Peach with Pumpkin Pie to make my first ever one layer card. Go me! This is the 4th (or 5th?) version of this card, and I really like how simple it is. And did I mention I love the colours?

Let me just say that I found the stamp-a-ma-jig absolutely essential! I tried stamping without it, and it was a disaster! I'd really like to try this with more colours, but I have to sit down and figure out which monotone colours go well together. Thanks for stopping by!
