The challenge at Stampotique Designers Challenge is clean and simple, so I decided to have a go!
Seriously, it's not polite and I can hear you sniggering from here.
I know clean and simple isn't something that comes naturally to me (have you seen my house?), but it is certainly something I aspire to......well, if not aspire to, it's something I admire in others. Particularly in card making.
I can still see your shoulders shaking, you know.
Anyway, talk about out of my comfort zone... my work, as you can probably tell is usually messy, inky, layered and bright. Over the top, some might say, everything but the kitchen sink, but it's what I like to make. So this was one hell of a challenge. You get the picture, right? So, I'd better show you the picture....
Hopefully you're not still laughing...... I'm really, genuinely chuffed with it. I had the idea floating around my brain all day yesterday, so I got up and whipped it up in 5 minutes flat this morning. Quickest card EVER! The most difficult bit was holding the sequin waste in place whilst I found just the right shade of yellow ink (it pays to be prepared kids). In case you're wondering, Impress ink lemon yellow over the top of chartreuse green.
I am so proud that I have resisted the urge to glitter, add ribbon, distress, stamp, ink, rip, tear or otherwise gussy it up.
