It's quite easy to get overwhlemed with elaborate art techniques, processes, images and gadgets in the papercrafting world. Sometimes it's the simple solutions that work the best to recharge your batteries and re-inspire creativity. Basic art and design principals are always good to fall back on; especially relationships of color and simplicity.
All four of these cards illustrate 'variations on a theme' using the Brush Stroke flower from Savvy Stamps and four white Inchie Squares. This stamp works well to use with a variety of rich pigment ink colors because it is a solid image and really puts the emphasis on the ink color. We used 5 different Fresh Ink colors to choose from including: French Lavender, Feesia, Island, Celery and Sicilian Blue. The sentiment is also from Savvy Stamps.
We save all our scraps of paper and keep them in bins by size....tiny, small, medium and full sheets. The bins of the smaller scraps are just with reach to easily pick through and find the perfect coordinating or matching paper.
Only two ink colors were used here, to coordinate with the pattern paper and Inchie Note card from the Wild Sherbet assortment. The bit of bling at the flower centers are 3mm White Glitter Dome dots from Crystal Stickers.
