We have quite the challenge for some people this week at #tgifc211 - Just a card, no layers. Me being one of those people! Since I tend to throw the catalogue at my projects most of the time, paring it back to the absolute minimum was always going to be a challenge!
When I do want to do simple, I tend toward colouring in. It's my first love and my happy place. If I do a good job, then I don't need to add anything more. The Free As A Bird stamp set (coming to a catalogue near you in June), was perfect for what I had in mind. The open line art images are perfect for all you colour in-ners out there!
I wanted a really soft look so reached for my Water Colour Pencils, but I didn't add any water! I just sat down and pretended to be five again with my favourite colouring book and pencils!
I admit, I was tempted to add twine or rhinestones or sequins, but I stopped myself and just let it be that simple. I did, however, make a bunch of them as thank you cards for everyone who ordered online with me last month. One might have your name on it?
Is this a challenge that inspires you? Then we would love to see your creations as well and you might just get a mention or be picked as our winner for the week. Just click HERE to come join in!
