Clean and simple inspiration

Sometimes, less is more.  I thought I'd have a rummage through my stamps and see if I could find any that I hadn't used in a while.  I liked this simple orchid stamp because you could colour it in, or leave it as line art.

I used plain white base card stock, and embossed two thin lines down the righthand edge.  I think red stands out nicely on white, so used that as my contrast colour.  The highlight in the flower was done with a red Sakura gellyroll glaze pen.  Having said that, I think it would work superbly as a monochrome black and white combo - super easy if you need a card in a hurry!

Also, don't forget there are only a few more days left before a blog reader can win the fabulous free software from My Memories digital scrapbooking - all you have to do is call in at my previous post and find out what you have to do...

You can make some cracking scrapbook pages with it - even me (and I am a complete novice!).
