ABC Challenge - K is for ......

....... Keep it Simple!



I've got to admit that I was a bit stumped by this one at first. I'm so used to playing with lots of embellishments and nice papers that I didn't know where to start! Anyway, I think I've managed to "keep it simple" - I hope you like it.

For this card I've used a Miss Anya stamp. I have to say a big thank you to Tracy from Dies to Die For, not only for her excellent fast service but for getting these stamps to me - I've been searching for them for ages.
Gosh, I'm waffling today lol! Back to the card.
The image has been stamped onto a shape cut from the Accent Essentials cartridge on the Cricut and then coloured with Copic markers. The cityscape has been cut using the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge with black gloss card. I've used a sentiment from the "Say Charge" set of stamps by My Favorite Things. I've finished the card by adding just a small amount of gems.

I hope you can join us at the ABC challenge this week, I look forward to seeing your interpretation of the theme.
