Clean And Simple Challenge #136


Guess What we did today? We visited a local college campus with our son who is graduating from HS this year. Scary. We will be empty nesters. Yikes. It was a very enjoyable experience today. Love to see Alek's excitement for his future.

Leaves! Yes leaves. That is the theme for this week's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE #136. This is one of my favorite challenges and I make an effort to play in it every week.

So here is what I came up with for the challenge. I used PAPER SMOOCHES set HANG UPS. The word "hi" comes swoopy like this...I just stamped the large leaves against the swoop. I colored them on the white cardstock then I stamped five more leaves on separate white cardstock, colored them, cut them, sponged their edges and popped them up. Simple. Just added a clear crystal sticker to the dot on the "i" for the finishing touch.

RECIPE:
STAMPS:Hang Ups (Paper Smooches)
PAPER:Cottonball White, Worn Parchment (Clear Dollar Stamps)
INK:Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain, Copics Y17, R29, YR07, E37, BG15
ACCESSORIES:Spellbinders Nestabilities Circls Labels, Scotch demensional tape, Tim Holtz Blending Tool
TECHNIQUES:Distressing, CAS

THANK YOU FOR VISITING TODAY! ENJOY YOUR DAY!
