When I first started cardmaking, I was clueless as to styles and genres and it was only after I started my blog that I settled on my preferred style which is Clean and Simple. I bought all sorts of bits and bobs, and lots of the designer papers I bought have since been donated to a charity shop which has a craft section. I guess it took a period of experimentation to discover what really appealed to me. Now that the shops are opening up again following Lockdown, I shall probably be taking another contribution of stamps, dies and punches etc to the shop. I really need to de-clutter! I wish my room looked as clear as my cards!
For this one, I began by making a watercolour background, by splodging a little paint with some water on watercolour paper. I die cut a few delicate sprigs in plain white card and just one in gold. I wanted the sentiment to tie in with the other die cuts and so chose this one from Simply Graphic, a company in France (... hence the language). I think that the thickness of the lettering matches well with the delicacy of the stems. I don't remember the make of the foliage and I can't put my finger on the packaging either. I think that it is possibly Alexandra Renke.
