So for my first card back, I pulled out some of the new Holiday collection cardstock by Jillibean Soup...totally love the colors on kraft...just makes me happy. This one also combined up the Clean and Simple Challenge #94 (this week: sponging) and the Clean and Simple Challenge #93 (last week: sketch). This is definitely clean and simple for me and I like it...don't know if I can do it all of the time, but it felt good.
I stamped the Moody for Presents from Paper Makeup Stamps in Chocolate Chip ink on Kraft cardstock. Then I used an aquabrush to color in just the hat and sweater with Bravo Burgundy and Whisper White ink. See the Moodies don't have to be completely colored! And oh how I love how that white ink went onto the kraft cardstock...just perfect! After I cut her out I sponged around the edges with some Chocolate Chip ink. Then I used a strip of the Jillibean Soup White Sugar from the Christmas Chestnut Soup on Kraft collection and some colored twine I had on hand. The greeting is the FREEbie sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps from any order during November. I also sponged around the entire base card too.
The other cards I made I don't think I will be showing for awhile...one is my Christmas card this year and the other I may submit for publication...so we shall see. Well that is all for me. Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
