SSIC and Grab and Go #10

Every once in a while I grab my stamps by Judith.  She has fun little stamps that just make you smile.  They are interactive meaning you can make a whole scene out of several different stamps.  Like here, I used the fence post, the two bird houses, the flower stems, lady buy, dragonfly, and the pink flower. Put altogether it makes a nice little scene. I also used a cloud stencil on this one and colored the scene with my Staedler Water Pencils.  I forgot how much fun they were, we get so used to the markers nowadays. This is for my friend Molly who just found out she will have to do an extensive round of Chemo and I thought it might bring a smile to her face on a day when she may not be feeling to well.
SSIC this week is a one layer card.  It's supposed to be KISS keep it simple sister but one layer cards are never that simple for me.  They always look so bare!!  I keep trying to fill up the white space.  That's why I stenciled the clouds, then added the foreground flowers, then sponged the green and on and on.  LOL!  And it's no longer a "simple" card.  :)

  1. Your card does not look bare to me. You created so much intrest with your stamps and colors. I usually use stamps as just one focus point. Your card is making me think I should rethink some of my stamps. Thanks!
