The Creative Card Crew have been setting some brilliant challenges and have also had a blog hop going on with candy ... I have followed the clues around the DT members' blogs, and now all I have to do to be eligible for the yummy prize is complete 2 out of 3 challenges. I completed challenge #8 but alas didn't manage to do challenge #9 as I was ill all week ... but no matter - now it's time for challenge #10!
The theme of this week's challenge is minimal ... hmmm .. just how minimal are we supposed to go lol?? I used my brand new PB stamp "Fanfare" which I bought on Saturday at Port Sunlight, having been inspired by a birthday card I received last week from my lovely friend Sue. It struck me as a fairly simple and elegant design. I watercoloured the stamp with Marvey brushstroke pens and then dusted liberally with Glamour dust, as this was going to be my one and only decoration on the card. i still felt the need to use some paper, but just one simple piece. I stamped the sentiment straight onto the base card, and voila! ... no brads, flowers, feathers, ribbons, lace, gems, swirls, punches - I think I need to lie down!
