Well very nearly the end of November, will soon be Christmas. Have you done your shopping yet and made your cards. Most of my cards are done and I have managed about half of my pressie shopping. We are a large family so lots to get. Just wish my dear husband would give me some idea of what he might like for his pressie. Not a clue at the moment. My daughter is doing the big family get together this year so that eases the workload a little, we do love Christmas.
Anyway I have just completed my card for this month's challenge at Claritystamps, the theme has been CLEAN and SIMPLE. I quite like this style of card although I do love embellishments so had to hold back a bit. I had a few ideas but finally settled on the one I am sharing with you here.
I started by blending three colours of distress ink over a piece of card.
Next I stamped the single Funky Flower twice over the blended colours. The stalk was not as long as I wanted so I used a Black micron pen to extend it a little. I also heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder so that it stood out well. Also meant I could use my pro-markers to colour it.
I also stamped some script randomly over the card with second generation ink, just to give a little bit of interest to the background. Then coloured in the flower heads.
Before mounting the image onto some black card I added a small piece of black ribbon across the stems. A final sentiment finished the card.
I think this fits the challenge theme ok and I hope you like it. Back to finishing those Christmas cards now and if you have time please leave a comment. Thank-you. xx
