Finally Friday 5/25/18

Finally Friday!
This Friday..Sometime's less is better.
Clean and Simple.
That means, no bling, no bows, and no badabing.
You can use layers for the background but keep the face of the card simple.
The Beauty of this kind of card, you can make a lot fast.

I used Stampin write makers and my aqua painter for this card on watercolor paper.
I love how it turned out.
I used one of my favorite retired stamp set Moon Lake. So if you buy sets and they retire, YES they are still good for a lifetime. Some people think because the stamp set is no longer for sale they need to get rid of it. Not true..

OK so now show me how easy it is to make a Clean and Simple card.

Finally Friday!

This Friday all about mixed media.
Search your house for different things, buttons, clips, a piece of material, string, feathers etc. Use your imagination when searching for things.
Now choose a stamp set and go for it.
there's no right or wrong way to make a mixed media card.
Here's mine.
I combined burlap, buttons, paper flower and paper clip along with Stampin: Up! Touches of texture.
