Clean and Simple example

Here is the first of a couple of examples I will put up to show you what I think of when I hear the term 'clean and simple'.  Keep in mind that your interpretation may be a bit different and that is ok.  I guess what I think when I hear of it, is an unfussy card (or scrapbook page), not too many layers, clean lines, just a couple of colours, small amounts of embellishments, neutral base (although not always the case), and a bit of 'white space' (this is the blank space that occupies your card or scrapbook page).

I will load another example on here later today.  If you click HERE, you will see that the butterfly card also subscribes to the 'clean and simple' look

Remember, the competition kicks off tomorrow morning at 7am and runs through until Friday 5th August at 11.59pm.  And there will be a prize!  So get your entries in!  Simply load your imagines onto your own blog or through an online photo album such as Picassa and link it to here by using the inlinkz link provides in Saturday's post.

Materials used:
Stamps - Funky Four, Apple Blossoms
Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery
Ink - Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip (marker)
Other - Button (Brights pack)

Edited To Add:  Have returned with another example for you....

the 'fussiness' of this card comes really from the patterned DSP.  The rest of it is pretty simple.

The only tricky bit that added a bit of oomph to the card, was that the disc in the middle is actually recessed in.  The image was stamped on Very Vanilla, coloured with markers and then adhered to the back of the cardstock and DSP (which had been pre-punched).

Materials used:
Stamps - Every Little Bit, Short and Sweet
Ink - Concord Crush, Basic Black, Pretty in Pink (marker), So Saffron (marker), Regal Rose (marker), Melon Mambo (marker)
Cardstock - More Mustard, Concorde Crush, Very Vanilla, Subtles Pattern Stack DSP
Other - Modern Label Punch
