Plain and Simple


We are looking for plain and simple cards at Totally Gorjuss this week, and we are sponsored by Heather's Hobbie Haven. Now I interpreted this a bit differently to clean and simple and made a card with the minimum of embellishments for me anyway.

I've used one of my new Simply Sassy digis from Sugar Nellie, Number 1 Fan. I've always loved this image and when he came out as a digi just had to buy him. He has been coloured with Promarkers. Quite a challenge to colour as the lines are very light but I do love spending time colouring. I love how his jeans came out looking bleached and I didn;t use the blender pen, just 3 Promarkers. The papers are a mix of MME Miss Caoline and Echo Park a Boy's Life. I used a Sizzix Primitive Star die and a paper crimper.
