Colour & Contour – Live with Michele

Today I’m taking part in the Just Add Ink ‘Clean & Simple’ Challenge and I am using Stampin’ Up!® Colour & Contour Stamps and Scalloped Contours Dies from the Annual Catalogue.

Just Add Ink #665

What is Clean & Simple?…Below is the definition by Just Add Ink, for some it’s just “Stamps, Paper, Ink”

What is “Clean & Simple”…Minimal accents and layers, clean colour pallets, nothing overly fussy…Basically the less is more concept!

Others say…there must be ‘White Space, Minimal layers, clean lines and shapes, few embellishments and they must be small, Patterned, Designer, textured, glittered and metallic paper to be kept to an absolute minimum’

Make sure you head over to Just Add Ink and check what the Design Team have created, make sure you also look at the other entries….better still create a project and add it to the challenge, have fun!

Colour & Contour

This card I used a very simple design to keep in with the ‘Clean & Simple’ theme….I have a Card Base and a Card front, both in white. The Card Front I added texture by using a mask from the New Abundant Beauty Decorative Masks (available in September to Order) with Smoky Slate.

The card front is adhere to the card base with multi purpose glue, making the two layers as one. You could very easily make this card with out the card front.

The flower image from Colours & Contours is a very simple design but has a beautiful flow to it with the curves lines of the flowers and stem. It is a two step stamp where there is a second stamp to fill in the petals of the flower heads and bud. I used Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp my image and Bubble Bath to colour the petals and bud.

I finished of this card with just 3 Classic Matt Dots.
