This week Cath at Moxi Fab World is hosting card style week to celebrate the publication of the new special issue from Paper Crafts magazine, Card Style. I have not been feeling the creative spark, but last night Dawn at Wplus9 Studio posted her submission for Clean & Graphic, and I was inspired. Thanks for the jump start, Dawn!
After I finished my Clean & Graphic card, I decided it also worked for Fun & Cute. How cute are those whales? I debated where to submit and ultimately picked Clean & Graphic. Here is why,
1. A lot of white space.
2. A simple design and elements.
3. A quick and easy message.
Why don't you try your hand and submit for the challenges. Pushing past a creative block or out of your ocmfort zone is always a good thing. For instance, I did not distress a single item on this card. Lately, my Ranger distressing tool has been glued to my hand. Literally after the diamond glaze spill last night, but that is another story. So this forced me to put it down and step away from the Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
Short and sweet today, or should I say Clean & Graphic?
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest creation. I'd love to hear from you so leave a comment or ask a question.
