Clean and Simple??!!!

This week, the challenge over at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is to create a clean and simple project.  At first, I was shivering in my boots…lately, I have been all about the layers, layers and more layers, so the idea of simplifying was a bit scary.  But then it hit me…make it all about the stamp…think about what the stamp is all about and just make it the center of attention!

So, I picked out the adorable Alice stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie, mostly because it has so many amazing detail to showcase.  I coloured her up and then added one strip of paper, a sentiment, a little bling and voila:


Alice-angledI chose the strip of back paper to accentuate the “falling” feeling that I get from the stamp!  That black provided a simple contrast to all the details in this amazing stamp. I fussy cut Alice and used some 1/4″ foam adhesive to attach her to the card to give a bit more definition.

Not to long ago, one of my scrappy firends asked if I ever thought about sharing the actual colours I use to colour the stamped images.  Now let me be completely honest, I have thought about that, but have been a little too lazy to keep track of each colour as I use them.  But, since I also appreciate it when others post their colours, I thought it was time I did my part.  So Rachel, this is for you:
