Plain and Simple

Happy Saturday
It's a little cooler today in the South West of England, we have had a scorcher of a week so nice to get a little breeze and some cooler air.

This week I have been very frugal using lots of my scraps of paper/card from my box where I put any waste I have in it there is quite a lot of black , half sheets here and there so I pulled a couple of those out to use,

I started by cutting our 2 white card blanks 12 x 6 inches
Scored down the middle
I cut the black card   and matted up
then cut white card and matted that too
(I added a ribbon to the white card stock on card 1)

Card 1
I used a dandelion stamp (love dandelions) and stamped it twice using Tuxedo Black memento ink - The sentiment was also stamped in this - I then added those cute two little birds using Paris Dusk Memento ink . Added a few tiny pearls and card 1 was made

Card 2
I adore this stamp , simple but contains so much detail , I was going to colour it in but I loved the black and white look, so I stamped a butterfly and coloured that very pale pink with my Graph'It Markers, then added a few pearls here and there and a sentiment to finish off.
The main stamp and sentiment I used Tuxedo Black memento ink and for the butterfly London Fog Memento ink
