Wendy Weixler's blog. Her projects are always so gorgeous and creative!
So, this month's theme... Simple, as in not many layers, but with style. Elegant is a bit tougher. What is elegant? I often think of vintage or flowers.
For a project with a little bit different look, I frequently turn to a mixed media challenge. The Mix-Ability #61 challenge, Not Monotonous, calls for different shades of a single color, which I find to be very elegant. I also followed the Pointillism tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.
Stamps: Regarding Dahlias, And Many More; Paper: Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Confetti Celebration DSP; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Smoky Slate Blendabilities, Black Stazon fine point marker; Accessories: Smoky Slate chevron ribbon, White baker's twine, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Bitty Banners framelits, Big Shot, Dimensionals.
Here's a different interpretation of elegant, as in an elegant way to add colored card stock to a card without adding layers. I recently learned about fun, new (to me) technique called inlaid die-cuts, which I wanted to try. I started off with some happy, warm colors for my card.
