A couple of 'Clean And Simple' (CAS) cards today.
The first is a touch of red for Less Is More challenge #9.
The red is Barn Door Distress Ink on a Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden stamp. It's an acrylic stamp which isn't usually happy with Distress ink, but I had already inked it with a chalk ink pad that was running out. I decided it wasn't dark enough and inked again with the Barn Door colour without cleaning in between. The result of all this was much better coverage with the Distress Ink.
The second stamp is an old DoCrafts one that hasn't seen the light of day for a very long time. Black ink was too dark and in the end I went for VersaMagic Ocean Depth, I do like my chalk inks!
Less Is More #9 - A touch of red
Creative Cottage #36 - White/blank space
My second CAS card is for the Daring Cardmakers challenge which is to use one of the flowers for April - either Daisies, Sweet Peas or even both.
I found this ancient DoCrafts stamp lurking with the one I used on the card above. It's stamped lots of times in Versafine ink along with a message from a Cardmaking and Papercraft free stamp set. I've coloured just one flower with Wild Honey and Spun Sugar Distress Inks.
