Creative Card Crew Challenge 90 - Clean and Simple (CAS)

Even though this Creative Card Crew challenge is a CAS challenge, it was probably one of the more difficult for me to tackle. I wanted so much to add layers of patterned paper and embellishments, but I stuck with a simple colored image from the Floral Tea Set digi set from Imagine That!
I decided to step away from my Copic markers and try my hand at colored pencils. I'm not sure I achieved the look I was going for, but I don't think it is too bad for my first attempt.

I layered the image panel on a piece of DCWV pink glitter paper and then popped that panel up on a piece of Basic Grey cardstock from Stampin' Up. 

That's it, clean and simple. Now for your chance to participate and possibly win some free digital images of your own.

This challenge is sponsored by the fabulous Kris of Imagine That! Go there to see lots of cuteness!

I want to add a little note to say I will be posting tons of mini album and cards for sale in the "For Sale" section of this blog. I'm also moving my craft room (just can't make my current space work) to a smaller room in my main living area. So I will also be posting some destash items there as well. Keep you eye out for some crafty goodness.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Creative Card Crew Challenge #89 White on White

Our next challenge over at Creative Card Crew is White on White. You can use only white with no image or have the image be the only color on the card. I chose the latter.

The White on White Challenge is Sponsored by,

I began by printing this beautiful Sabrina image by Saturated Canary on Copic X-Press It Blending Card. I colored the image using Copic Markers. Since the image only had a couple of dots for the nose, I tried a new technique that indicates the bridge of the nose with the light coming from in front of the image. I even impressed my self, it wasn't as hard as it looks. I really like the results.

I embossed the base card using a Cuttlebug folder that has clean strips. I cannot find the name of the folder anywhere. If I do, I will link it below.

I die cut the image using Spellbinders Twenty. I used various dies to cut all of the other components (see supplies list below).

I used the flower dies from MFT's Blueprints 5 to cut multiple flowers. I stacked them and added a pearl brad from The Paper Studio. 

Honestly, I was a bit intimidated by this challenge. I've never attempted a one color card. These types of cards rely on texture to make them pop. I'm not sure if my first attempt was the best, but I love it.

Please join us for the White on White challenge over at Creative Card Crew. Until then, thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.
