LSS - Posh 'n' Trendy

I think my very favorite cards are the clean and simple ones.  When I first began using digi's .. for me it was all about the images.   As time went on I added more stuff and am now back to the less is more frame of mind.  I attempted a one layer card but wasn't real sure what constituted one layer.  Is the background considered a layer?  I am thinking yes.  Are embellishments such as ribbons or gems a layer?  I have no idea ....  but I'm thinking no.  Hopefully some of you will share your thoughts.

Anyway ... after all of that  (LOL) here is my attempt at a one layer card:

I just printed the image and sentiment out on the card base.  This is one layer ... right?!?    This image is from one of my very favorite digital stamp sets "Posh 'N' Trendy" from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  You can find it at mygrafico Store.  The sentiment is from Raindrop Echoes HERE.

My card this week for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff features an image from "Fancy Flowers" Stamp Set.  This is an awesome set.  Here is my card:

Isn't this a pretty image?  I just love it.  You can pick it up at "mygrafico".  I have a real hard time coloring outside the lines but wanted to try with watercolor pencils and an aquabrush.  I always liked the look when I see others do it.  I like the way it turned out.

Visit Lindsay's Blog .... The Frugal Crafter ... and see what she has for you today.  I know it will be something awesome.  And pick up her freebie for the week.  On Friday she'll have a round-up of all the DT cards.  You can find their blogs on my right side-bar.

Come Fly With Me

I am still having internet issues so I am doing my free week card for Daisy Doodles today.  I had actually made this card to be poster earlier but between internet problems, and a busier work schedule and my hubby landing himself in the hospital I have been a little preoccupied with life ...   Anyway I had been dying to use "Up, up and away"  from Daisy's Digi Doodles.  It has digi paper with it, too.

Here is my card:

This was such an easy card to make.  I used a light gray card base, then the digi paper mounted on black.  I colored the plane with prismacolor pencils and oms and inked the sky.  Mounted it on black and the light gray. Attached it to the card along with a computer generated sentiment and done.  Pretty simple!  This was a fun one to do.
If you haven't entered the challenged yet there is still plenty of time.  The theme is May Flowers or Mother's Day.  Go to Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges Blog and join in.
