Clean and Simple Card


Grabbed a little time this afternoon to disappear into the loft, put the radio on and "play". Decided to use my new Lavinia Stamps and do some cards with a clean and simple design similar to the ones that were displayed on the Lavinia stand at the Happy Stampers Fair a few weeks ago.

I used Versafine Smokey Grey Ink pad and then dabbed on some coloured chalk to the flower heads and stalks for just a hint of colour. Added some glitter around the flower head. Added tags and ribbon from stash. I love the textured card on the single flower card although you can't see it very well on the photo. I should have used it on both as it makes the card look a bit more special.

Had to put my little heater on up there today - can you believe it at nearly the end of May? The wind was howling around the roof and I could hear the rain falling on the roof outside.Bbrrr. Still if the weather had been nice I might have felt guilty for not been outside doing the garden and it soooo needs attention.
