Something Simple

I can't seem to get my head around anything today...the devastating news about the bushfires in Victoria is occupying my thoughts. A tragedy like that just makes everything else feel so trivial.

So, just a super quick and simple one from me today. A couple of pieces of Bali Breeze patterned paper, some co-ordinating cardstock, and voila, a card. I used markers to ink up the stamp, colouring direct to rubber,so that I could get the 2 different shades. After I put it all together, I did a tiny dot of Crystal Effects in the centre of each blossom. It's hard to tell in the pic, but it really makes all the difference to an otherwise simple card.

Materials (all Stampin' Up!)
stamps: Eastern Blooms
ink: none!
card: Old Olive, Taken with Teal, Whisper White
other: Old Olive marker, Taken with Teal marker, Old Olive Wide ribbon, Crystal Effects, Bali Breeze DSP

  1. It is a beautiful card Marelle. I love the colours you have used and the stamp set is adorable and such a fab summer set.
    I agree. The news is just continually reminding us of the horror in Victoria, and I cannot contemplate the events. 128 individuals have lost their lives there, and I suspect that there are many more to be accounted for. It is a tragedy indeed, and my heart goes out to anyone who has been touched by it. I think the entire country is feeling it. It really makes you feel lucky to be alive. <3
