Today's card was created for the CASology Cue Card and the CAS(e) This Sketch challenges. Now, I have to admit that I struggle with clean and simple. It's just not in my nature so I really have to constrain myself to not go overboard with embellishments or too much layering but I like the way this turned out. I started with some textured aqua cardstock and layered on some kraft and added some dashed lines using my Signo uni-ball white gel pen. I stamped one of the flowers from the Stampin' UP Flower Shop stamp set using Memento tuxedo black ink and punched it out using the coordinating punch. I colored the flowers using Copic markers in the blue and blue violet family to create a nice variegated look. I added a few white dots using my gel pen and then added some small white pearls from The Paper Studio. I heat embossed the Wishing You sentiment from the Verve Stamps Wishing You stamp set using clear Versamark ink and snow white detail embossing powder from Recollections. I added a pearl to the I in the sentiment to tie it in with the flowers. I popped the flowers up using some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals for a bit of dimension and called it done. I hope you like it!
