With a Cherry on Top


Today's Clean and Simple Challenge is based on a great sketch. This is a 4.25 inch square card, made primarily with scraps. The base is Basic Black, the red is scrap, the white is scrap and so is the ribbon. I stamped the images (Inque Boutique) with Versamark and then colored them with Prismacolor pencils and blended them. I stamped with Versamark because I wanted each part to have it's own color without a contrasting outline.

So many things can be done with this sketch, I have a lot of ideas floating around my head. I may go back to create more later. For now, I have to get cracking on those Father's Day cards!! Hopefully I will be back later with more posts.

I hope you all had a good weekend. We were busy with DS's last soccer session, and setting up the swimming pool we bought. It's very small, but will be perfect for DS for a few years. And since I'm due with baby in September, it's going to feel great for me in this long hot summer!

This week will be filled with preparations for going away again this weekend. Graduation party, Father's Day and travel. Have a good week everyone!

Cute card! I like the red and the sentiment. The technique you used worked really well! I'll have to try that sometime.
