A Clean and Simple Happy Thing

Yesterday afternoon I held an Introduction to Blendabilities class.  This was a great opportunity to come and learn some basics about these fab markers whether you had just earned some through Sale-A-Bration or were getting a set offered with the class.  After coloring a bit to get the feel of the markers and how to blend, I pulled out some of the wonderful line art stamps that are available in the two catalogs and Sale-A-Bration brochure so that we could practice our coloring on one of the stamped images. Everyone left excited to color more.

As one of my demonstration pieces for the class, I had colored the lemon from A Happy Thing. This morning, I decided to turn it into a Clean and Simple card.

I cut out the lemon that I had colored yesterday and then stamped a second one on the focal piece of Whisper White.

I used my Simply Scored Stylus to give some shape to the leaves and lemon of the cut out image.  This shaped piece was then layered over the image stamped directly on the focal layer.  It adds a nice bit of texture while still leaving a nice clean look to the card.

This fresh image was just the thing today.  We’re enjoying another cold day here with the threat of snow.  I don’t know about you but lemons always make me think “summer”.  Maybe that’s why I keep wanting to call it a happy day rather than “A Happy Thing”.  Who knows?  Doesn’t matter as that cheery, yellow lemon works for me regardless of the name.

Create something today.  And if you haven’t tried the Blendabilities yet, grab a set or two free as your Sale-A-Bration choice.  They’re addicting!
