With everyone back to work, I started prepping Alyssa's bedroom. I'll be painting tomorrow. All the stuff from her bedroom is currently in my living room. You can barely walk in there right now. I want my room back!!! Hopefully by the end of the week, most will be gone. That's my plan.
I made this card for a swap. The catagory was Clean and Simple cards. I love this style of cards. It looks very simplistic, but there is quite a bit going on too.
First, the background was sponged with Bermuda Bay. The flower needed something to ground it otherwise I was afraid it would look like it would just be floating around. It doesn't need a lot, but definately looks great.
Second, the flower is colored with Stampin' Blends. I used both light and dark Bermuda Bay and just the light Old Olive. Once colored, I used Wink of Stella on the flower.
Third, it needed just a little bit of bling. I randomly added some rhinestones around the flower for that reason.
Like I said, there's a lot going on in the little part of the card. But it gives the look of a simple card. So remember...looks can be deceiving.
