Happy Wednesday, yall! I hope your week is going great so far. I did manage to get my stamp room semi-clean (hey, I can sit and stamp!) so I sat down and made a couple of Bella cards last night. I don't know about you, but I keep hearing all about this Clean and Simple business...so I decided to give it a whirl. I did get 2 cards done, but don't let the "simple" fool you...they still took me a bazillion hours. *sigh* Here's the first one, where I used this week's Color Challenge and CAS Sketch.
Funky Clothesline image the cutest? I have had it for quite a while and just now inked it up. I stamped it in Brilliance Graphite Black on Neenah Solar White cardstock, then colored it up with Copic markers. I cut and embossed the image with my Rectangle Nestabilities, then matted it on a black panel with a scalloped bottom edge. The sentiment was stamped in Brilliance Black as well, and the rounded corners were a perfect finishing touch.
For the next card, I tried to keep that Clean and Simple theme going...look! I did pretty good!
Kinibella that I already had in my stash of colored images. She was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics (yes, AGAIN! I promise I will do some more watercoloring soon, k?). I just gave her a little black mat to sit on, then popped her up onto a Cool Caribbean layer embossed with Swiss Dots embossing folder, and sponged with Taken with Teal around the edges. Whew! For clean and simple that's a long sentence! *grin* Anywho, I tried stamping the sentiment right on the card, but it just didn't show up, so I added a little white banner thingy. The flower was one that didn't make it onto the first card, and I thought it looked cute on this one. Super easy (still took me an hour...HMPH).
Anywho, I gotta sign off now. Don't forget...you still have time to make a card for this week's Bellariffic Friday challenge! You can see it HERE. Have a wonderful day!
