Just Add Ink Challenge #12

Well I managed to find some time to participate in this week's Just Add Ink Challenge #12 which was a simple sketch challenge. I think it is nice some times to make something clean and simple rather than having lots of embelishments or clutter on a card (although I like doing these as well). Anyway here is my entry for this week's challenge:

A close-up view:
Stamps: Garden Whimsy (a favourite of mine)
Ink: Whisper White, Orchid Opulence
Cardstock: Orchid Opulence, Elegant Eggplant, Going Gray
Accessories: Elegant Eggplant Grosgrain Ribbon, Stamp-a-ma-jig

I made this card by first stamping my butterfly with Whisper White ink and then using my Stamp-a-ma-jig (great for aligning stamp images and text) I stamped my butterfly again using Orchid Opulence ink slightly to the right of the first stamped image to create a 3D type effect. I mounted the stamped card piece on Elegant Eggplant leaving just a thin border edge and finishing it off with a simple piece of grosgrain ribbon. I liked the simplicity of this card and so mounted it on Going Gray to maintain the plain soft effect I was creating. What do you think?

I'm all for simplicity... mind you, it still takes me as long to create as any other!! I think this is beautiful, Mae. :-)
