Sometimes, simple is better…

I can’t say enough about how much I love clean and simple cards. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love making detailed, complicated cards (like the last one I posted!), but sometimes, simple is better!

I achieved the mottled effect on the flower image by first stamping the flower head itself in Melon Mambo ink, then taking my Rich Razzleberry In Color Marker (helllloooo! In color markers!!!) and “thumping” it over top. I finished the flower off by inking the stem of the flower with the Old Olive Marker.

I started to use ribbon on this card, but I just wasn’t feeling the way it was looking. So I took out the new Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series paper, and from the one striped sheet, I cut out the pink and white flowery stripe and applied it. I really like the effect is has as “faux ribbon”!

    Wow! I love this card! That flower is gorgeous and I like the idea of using the stripe from a striped paper 🙂

    Fabulous card! I am loving Melon Mambo and love how you used the Razzleberry marker to add more color to the flower!
