One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Clean and Simple Cards 2 Day 4 - 2

Did you know that "white space" doesn't necessarily mean "WHITE"?  I think the point is to have 'space' Julie used the same stamp but used it on a dark blue paper using white paper ink.  I used the Lace Bouquet again and used some colorbox white ink...after it dried it really muted out...not happy with how it looks...and it didn't keep all the lines from the flowers crisp...might have to dry another kind of white ink!

Paper:  PTI Raspberry Fizz
ink:  colorbox, versamark,
Stamps:  PTI Lace Bouquet, think Big # 22
misc:  white filigree embossing powder


  1. Hi Colleen - thought I'd pop in as a fellow "classmate" and say HI! I love the stamps you chose for this technique, I think it's nice how it turned out so don't be hard on yourself!

  2. This is gorgeous. Great stamp choices and beautifully crafted!

  3. I tried this too but my white ink isn't very good and I wasn't pleased with the results. Your card is still lovely though! C x

  4. I love both your card using Julie's techniques. They turned out so lovely.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
