Before I get to today's card I wanted to share that I made the "Cut Above" for my card featured HERE for challenge #594. It's always a fun surprise when you receive good news like that.
Now on to this weeks, Clean and Simple challenge. Something that is totally out of my comfort zone. - Clean and Simple is hard for me to start out with but combine it with a, One Layer card and yep, I'm a little intimidated.
I decided to give it a try though. I'll also be posting this as an NBUS#39 card since the stamp set I used is brand new and this was it's first use along with the Distress inks that I used.
Here is my card:
Card base: White Card Stock - This was a thicker card stock that I believe I purchased from Papertrey Ink many years ago.
I used a stencil from Tim Holtz Halloween set and sponged on,Spiced Marigold, Mustard Seed and Crushed Olive Inks. Next I stamped the drink stamp (Unity - Itty Bitty - Chillin) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with colored pencils blended with gamsol. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed with Basic Black embossing powder to complete the card.
So how did I do? I'm still not sure that this is a style I'll grow to love but at least I gave it a try.
