Saying goodbye to losing weight!

This month, the Dreamweaver challenge has been challenged to lose some weight by creating Clean and Simple cards. Usually all of my cards and clean and simple. That's just who I am. I like symmetry, clean lines, color definition and contrast.

A couple of weeks ago, I shared with you this simple Embossed Strie card that uses the new Dreamweaver LJ 927 Floral Dots stencil:




And so today for my last post for this Clean and Simple challenge,  I thought I'd share a card featuring the same stencil, just created using stencil paste and then colored with paintstiks once the crackle paste was dry. This cards is somewhat unfinished intentionally so that a sentiment can be added at the last minute for one of those I need a card NOW moments.


One of the things I love most about Dreamweaver stencils is their versatility. By just changing up the colors and/or technique, the stencil takes on a whole new look and feel.

I can't believe we're approaching the end of January. Where did this month ago? If someone has any tricks on how to slow down the hands of time, please share them with me. I certainly could use some tips!

Beautiful! Hard to believe the two different looks came from the same stencil! Very nicely done!
