Get Creative October 17th Challenge ” Clean and Simple “

Yes me again just couldn’t stay away !!! This month over at Get Creative we are celebrating our second birthday and after the resounding success of last October’s month of card making we have decided that this will become a firm fixture on our calendar , that means that the thirteen team members will each be hosting their own challenges and they will also be responsible for choosing a winner and offering a lovely prize. You can enter as many times as you like as long as your card is for a specific challenge .

For my challenge I have chosen Clean and Simple  (CAS)  I seem to be stuck in that mode at the moment, to be honest I’ve been stuck in it for a while and am thoroughly enjoying it !

Your entry MUST be Clean and Simple. This means that clean and crisp lines, minimal or no embellishments and lots of ‘white’ space should be used.

 White space does not need to be ‘white’. It can be any colour. White space is a term used for the area of your card with no stamping, embellishments etc. So come and see what I made

I used this lovely stamp by Inkylicious with black archival ink and coloured the eye with a blue copics marker. I placed over the eye an oval beveled glass dome to give dimension. I had a bit of trouble with the lips as due to the intensity of the black ink every time I colured them red they just look very dark and I wanted something bright and luscious. I ruined loads of images untill I finally had a brain wave. I used glossy accents to go over the lips and when dry coloured over the top with red copics and got exactly the look I was going for. I created  a frame with my cameo to encase the eye and popped it if with some foam , the sentiment was computer generated. I really enjoyed making this card so made another using the same stamp but using yellow leather this time as a base

I really love the effect of stamping onto leather and this image was a joy to work with ,  for once I can actually say that I  really like how they turned out .
We would love to see you over at Get Creative and if CAS is not your style then there will be twelve other themes to choose from and each one has a gorgeous prize , which reminds me nearly forgot to show you what the winner of my challenge will receive.

Graphics 45 12 x 12 Little Darlings Paper Pad, it’s absolutely jam-packed with beautiful retro pages , to be honest I wanted to keep it for myself !

You have until the 29th of the month to upload your card …….so on Get Creative
