Good evening! I decided to see what the Clean & Simple challenge was on splitcoast stampers and it was a sketch challenge- my very favorite of course and so here is my card for the challenge. I turned the sketch sideways.
This is an oldie set, huh? I was sorting through my stamps trying to rearrange the 'soon to be' retiring sets from the current ones and I happened to stumble across this set.
I stamped the cat image and then a crown. I cut out the crown and placed it on the cat. Next, I added three small basic pearls for her collar. My cat image has dimensionals underneath it. I didn't have a larger circle punch to layer and punch out a black circle so I decided to use the same 1 3/4" circle punch and punch out two black circles and layer them underneath my stamped cat image. It worked pretty- you may have not even noticed.
My pink designer series paper is retired paper (sorry I can't recall the name of it). I decided to stamp some black flowers onto my dsp so the paper is normally pink with lighter pink polka dots- not with the black flowers. This is the first time I ever stamped on dsp and I think it turned out great! I probably wouldn't stamp on a busier dsp pattern, but here it worked out.
I used my scallop trim border punch along the side of my dsp and on the other side I decided to add three small ribbon tabs- that's something I haven't used a quite some time, but I couldn't figure out how else to add a small bit of ribbon. Ribbon tabs are great if you have lots of scraps to use up!
Well, that's about it for tonight. I'm off to bed and remember to check back tomorrow to see my card for the Twisted Tuesday challenge. Actually, I made to cards for tomorrow- it's a fun challenge!
