Dare to Get Dirty: Embrace the White Space


Happy Sunday! Hope you are having a great weekend and staying cool! It seems to be hot everywhere!


Have you heard about the Dare to Get Dirty challenges over at Splitcoast? There are fabulous challenges all week from the Dirty Girls for the Fan Club members, how fun!


I made this for the "Embrace the White Space" challenge...limit your layers, leave white space showing, try a minimalist approach. I just had to add a little pop of patterned paper at the bottom though. The stamped image and the sentiment had been laying on my desk back since the Gallery Idol contest, my first...and then abandoned...endeavor for the Creativity Heals challenge to make a "thinking of you/get well/inspiration" type card. I did create the sentiment myself on my computer using Word, I was happy with the way that turned out, just never could get the rest to come together, until now! ha!


So, did you hear my BIG news (No, not that I just turned 44 today, yikes!) for the day?! Laura and Kazan asked me to be on 2S4Y design team!! Imagine my happy dance here...sort of like Elaine's...I told Laura I almost threw my hip out dancing around the room when I got the news! hee! hee! I've been playing along at 2S4Y every since their very first sketch challenge, it's such a great community with so much talent, I'm super excited!


Okay, off for exciting things today...like brunch (something to act as a vehicle for my syrup, YUM!) and Inception and maybe a little shopping! Well worth a shower and hair wash, wouldn't you say?! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

What a big day! Happy birthday and congrats on your design team! How was Inception? I just read a great review on it and it has me intrigued.

I love how you take pieces of stamped images and things you didn't use on other cards and use them on future projects. I need to do more of that. This came together beautifully!

Stephanie said...

Lots to celebrate - hope you had a great birthday! Love the card, the color combo is unexpected (I always associate rain with gray or drab colors) and I think it really pops the image that much more.
