I really love this quote. It is so true.
So, in an ongoing effort to get my mojo kick started, I was thrilled to see that Pals Paper Arts challenge this week was to make a KISS (keep it simple, sweetie) card. So, in essence, use stamps/ink/paper and limited embellishments.
I started with a Basic Black card base and layered it with Whisper White. To the left side I added a strip of Old Olive which I’d stamped with Itty Bitty Backgrounds.
Over the seam of the Old Olive cardstock, I added some 5/8″ Brocade Blue grosgrain. I tufted it a bit at the top and added a “genuine” brad from my Styled Silver HodgePodge Hardware.
On the far right, I stamped the peacock feather from Nature’s Nest. I inked it up with Brocade Blue ink then used my Old Olive and Basic Black markers to add various shades. I stamped the saying from Hope Happens in Basic Black.
This card is elegant in it’s simplicity. And, what’s more is that I came up with a bunch of ideas for upcoming projects while I was doing this one!
