Totally Papercrafts ,,,,,, Clean and Simple

Good Morning all :-) Hope you are all well and looking forward to a lovely weekend :-)
Thanks to everyone who joined in with our 1st Birthday celebrations and if you pop by the Totally Papercrafts Challenge blog there is a long list of winners :-)

This week it was Anne's turn to choose the theme and she chose

CLEAN AND SIMPLE :-) so keep embellies to a minimum :-)

We are sponsored by Meljen Designs and one lucky winner will have a choice of 4 fab digi images

For my card I used this cute Meljen Designs Happy Panda image I wanted to keep it as simple as possible so I stuck to a Black/ White combo. I coloured the image with Copics and the papers are mainly just plain white card ,I embossed a panel with a distressed stripes folder and added a strip of spotty Doodlebug. The gingham ribbon is Papermania. I added Star Dust Stickles and a few drops of Black Enamel accents for faux pearls ,, I also dotted some Glossy Accents on his nose :-)

Challenges :

Less is More ,,,, Black/White/Pink ( he has pink feet and cheeks ,, does the green disqualify me ?? if so please just scrub me off :-)
CCEE Stampers ,,,, Dry Embossing
Lexi's Creations ,,,,, Bears
Copic Creations ,,,, Cool Colours
Little Claire's ,,,,, Anything Goes

The DT have made some gorgeous CAS cards so please pop by the TPC to see them :-)

Awwh, you just want to cuddle him! Ace card Lols, the B&W is amazing girl, wish I could do it half as well, and the embossing is an inspired touch - the distressed stripes make me think of the bamboo Panda would be munching. Brilliant. Hugs, Sxx

Your card is gorgeous Lols, beautiful cute Panda.

Chrissie said...

This is a really lovely card Lorraine, albeit much layered for a traditionally accepted Clean and Simple style. I can just about see the pink, so maybe we'll forgive you for the green!
Come back next week for the One Layer Card challenge, it should be fun!
