Yep, a new challenge is going on over at 'hereisaplacetostart' and we would love for you to come and join in the fun.
The theme this month is 'anything goes', so no excuse to have fun and get creating.
For my DT make I opted for Clean and simple style (CAS). The first being a simple card and then a basic bookmark.
The stamps I used are from two sets by Aall & Create, set #83 designed by Fiona Paltridge and set #154 by Tracy Evans. The little girl character is called Lilith and I fell in love with the childlike qualities and couldn't resist using her or part of her on each creation. The sentiment that comes with her is a must have 'believe in the magic of a smile'. As card-maker's and crafter's we know how much making and receiving a card means. A simple card with such a beautiful sentiment would mean a lot to anyone, especially out of the blue.
The simple card is using one of Tracy's flowers, combining the beauty and simplicity of nature along with a smile is a perfect combo in my book.
For the background of the bookmark I simply added some distress oxides and water to blending mat and 'smooshed' the card over it. The colours I used were; worn lipstick and dusty concord - both from the Tim Holtz Ranger series.
I hope you've enjoyed my simple creations and I truly look forward to seeing your work. Happy crafting everyone.
