Neutral Coneflowers - Stampin' Up! Nature's Harvest

   I always have fun designing projects for my Quick & Easy card class and really focus on some easy techniques that might get overlooked for all the new bells & whistles.  For this card, keeping to a neutral color palette and adding just a little bit of highlighting with a white colored pencil makes for a nice and clean card but definitely not boring!

  I started with a Soft Suede base and then added a layer of retired DSP in a checked Crumb Cake pattern for just a little bit of easy detail.

  Then the coneflower from Nature's Harvest is stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock with Soft Suede ink.  Using a white colored pencil, parts of the image are highlighted.  A bit of Crumb Cake ribbon is wrapped around the layer and anchored with a sentiment label also stamped in Soft Suede.

  Keeping with the neutral tones a few Elegant Faceted gems are added to the corner.

  See....Quick & Easy.  You can do this technique on any open line art image and it especially looks nice on leaves, trees and flowers.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
