I had to laugh when stumbled across this blog! Clean & Simple. So NOT me. I'm so NOT...well organized is a better word than "clean". And simple...nothing simple about this country girl trapped in a sub burb of Chicago! lol~
When I went into my studio, I just kept saying clean & simple, clean & simple, clean & simple. And you know, when you start out with the impossible, it is impossible! ;) But after much RESTRAINT and chanting those 3 little words, I CREATED SOMETHING CLEAN & SIMPLE! I am still in shock!
Of course, I had to break the rules a little! It was a nearly impossible challenge, as I mentioned before. And the only way I was getting it to work was to use this calming DSP. Now how do you find an image you already own that goes seamlessly with this paper??? Well, I got to thinking about a saying or phrase I could use...Thank You is perfect...clean & simple right? Yup!
So thanks to my handy dandy lap top, I used charcoal ink and printed the phrase on SU! cs. I found some coordinating SU! paper, ribbon and a button I cut off a coat of mine that I threw out last year due to a hole from a rake. Perfect match, clean & simple :)
I so love this card and feel that every element on this work of art contributes to its success. It is just as it needs to be, clean & simple! LOVE IT!
