Simple challenge


Challenging myself is always an adventure. This card is for the Think Simple challenge on the A Muse Lounge. Wanted to do something different so I tried a technique we learned at the Copic marker training in Seattle. We learned that you can color directly on the stamp with Copic markers! I know! You thought you couldn't, didn't you? You color on your stamp with your marker, then spray the paper with the colorless blender solution and then stamp. Easy peasy! It worked great. Now what to do with the stamped image on a simple card? Just used my Cuttlebug embossing borders set to make the yellow strip and voila, a simple card. Thank you, Jennie for a great challenge. It was harder than I thought it would be, but fun to do. Will try another simple card soon.

Classy and Simple! Very nice card. I like the border. I'm looking to get some borderabilities...or whatever they are called. This is very inviting!
