DAISY DELIGHT - CAS COLOURS AND SKETCHES

I always like to challenge myself to do the Clean and Simple challenges - because so often I like to puts lots of things on a card.

The challenge #222 over at CAS colours and Sketches this week is a sketch


 

 How Clean and Simple is this sketch - was I up to the challenge? Let me know if  you think I was.  

I decided to go with the new Daisy Delight set because I think the images on this are so simple but effective.




I masked off my Whisper White card stock three ways - the left hand was inked with our new Powder Pink ink - the right hand side was inked over with Calypso Coral.  The daisy was simply inked with Pear Pizazz for the stem - Pink Powder for the first stamp for the daisy and the new Fresh Fig for the stamping detail.  The sentime, inked in Fresh Fig is also from this set.

Then I had to walk away.  Gulp - no ribbon, no embellishments, no glitter - I kept it Clean and Simple with lots of white space just as asked.

I love its simplicity - it allows the Daisy to take centre stage.

 BUT.... then I looked at it and just had to fiddle - it was crying out for some DSP and what better than the Daisy Delight Designer Series Paper - oh and then it needed some bling so I had to include a few of the lovely new Glitter dots!! I won't include this in the challenge as I don't think it has enough white space but I love the fact that you can give the basic card a make-over!
