I'm taking the Online Card Classes, Clean and Simple One Layer Clards with Jennifer, Kristina, & Julie.
. However, my cards are not clean and simple. I really have tried. LOL
I am going to do another scene and use only part of a stamp scene to make more of a white space. Without further ado. DAY ONE: This is indeed a one layer paper card. I die-cut the three ornaments out of that lovely blue tinted paper pattern and then die cut the blue panel. I lined the back of the cut out blue panel with regular copy paper covered with adhesive. I then placed each patterned paper ornament into the blue panel where the missing blue ornaments came from. Adding some metallic twine was perfect with just an addition of 2 clear gems and Stickles Glitter Glue. I really like the way this turned out, but I don't think it's as Clean and Simple as should be.
I never used this Penny Black San Francisco scene before and really wanted to use it. I couldn't find anything smaller yesterday and decided to go with it. I'm happy with it, but indeed, there should be more white space for a true Clean and Simple card. I really just hit some portions of the stamps with color (Copic markers) and used T0 and T1 on many of the buildings. I could see my girlfriend and I sitting at a table in San Francisco having tea and chatting about what we want to do in the City. We haven't been to the City in 8 years to shop. It's only two hours away. Yes, we do NEED to GO.

Can't wait for time to do more! Hope you have a great end of the week. I'm entering this card in Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog.
