Keep it simple...

sponsored again by 

I still struggle with this concept for card making.
Being into mixed media and doll making I am all
about the "detail", finding something new each time I
look at a piece.
With C & S it seems to be more about the immediate impact.

 I chose to use a slightly textured card stock
and added a faded green patterned paper
(Crafter's Companion Beatrix Potter cd)
 I made an embossed frame from the same
 white textured card as the base...
then used Bundled Sage DI and Pastel Beige Promarker to
add a little colour.
I coloured the man image and cut her out before 
gluing her onto the background...
Then it was just a matter of adding the frame
(on thin foam pads)
a bit of ribbon and a sentiment :D
...and that's about as C & S as I can manage lol

Enjoy  ;D XXX
