Today's challenge was to make a birthday card using the color orange.
When I was thinking of the color orange I kept thinking of these flowers. Even though my card doesn't have a lot of white space, I'm thinking it's still clean and simple, well I know it was simple...LOL
I also made this card for today's try a new technique challenge. This challenge was to take one of our cards and either make it a more clean and simple card or make it a 'more' card. I chose this card from my splitcoast gallery and I made it a more clean and simple card. In making it a more clean and simple card I decided to eliminated two layers, one flower, and the buckle; although I did add the sponging.
This is a super easy card that can be made in just minutes. I simply colored the flower stamp and then stamped it onto my card stock.
Next, I stamped some of the grass, but after I inked up my grass stamp I stamped it off onto scrap paper first and then I stamped it over my flower image. I wanted the grass to appear a little lighter.
I was going to leave my background blank, but then I changed my mind and I ended up sponging my background. My clouds were made using a punched scallop circle and I my sponge. I didn't even do any masking with my sponging; I just sponged around my flowers, super quick and easy.
