Creative Confetti: Keeping it Simple

Hello friends and happy Tuesday! I hope the week is off to a great start for everyone! Lisa here to bring you this weeks Creative Confetti and we're going to keep it simple!

Life is a bit crazy for me right now....I work for our local school district and our kids are headed back to school on the 19th so we're busy getting ready for them. Plus, after 11 years of working the night shift, I'm switching to days. So, I'm trying to balance work, family time and crafting time! I'm always about keeping things simple but I really need to simplify things as much as possible right now. Hence, this week's theme. Let's create cards with lots of white space and not much fuss. Let the image do all the talking!

HOW TO PLAY: Create a clean and simple card. This means plenty of white space and a nice streamlined card without a lot of elements to draw your eye away from the image.

On to my creation...

Power Poppy has such wonderful images with fabulous details that it's really easy to pick one for a CAS card. Since I have winter and Christmas on the brain  I decided to ink up the set Let Your Heart Be Light. I am drawn to images that have an old fashioned feel to them and this set definitely has that feel. My grandmother was a retired florist and she used to have the most beautiful Christmas centerpieces on the kitchen table and this set makes me think of those.

To start, I die cut my white base so I would have some pretty edging around my image. After getting the 2 pieces arranged to where I wanted them (the top and bottom image panels) I stamped them in black and then used my copic markers to color in the image. For a little extra pop, I used metallic gel pens on the leaves and berries. I then adhered the white image panel to a cherry-colored card base and voila, easy peasy clean and simple card! It took me less than 15 mins from start to finish!
