Simples at Crafts & Me

This week it was my turn to choose a theme at Crafts and Me and I've chosen Simples - That is with little or no embellishment.  I dont go for Clean and Simple much, I like my papers and colours too much but you can do a CAS if you like so long as your card is pretty simple with few embellishments.  For this I used one of the new digis called Autumn by Sara Burrier.  She's coloured in with a variety of Letraset items - promarkers, flexmarkers, metallic markers and ultra fine nibs, I was just enjoying experimenting lol!  I used distress ink around the edge and on the papers to distress it and simply added some metallic gems to finish.  The sentiment I used the green metallic marker and coloured in the stamp.  (I have some of these to give away shortly too!)

Hope you enjoy my simples challenge and join in!

Ooh, she's beautifully coloured, though I should expect that by now, lol. I much prefer this style of card but you know me - I like to see the inks without much embellishment, lol. I know, I'm weird but I don't care x

Gorgeous Vix. I think clean and simple gets overlooked because everyone embellishes to the hilt these days. This shows how gorgeous it can look when done well.
