Simplicity at its Best

The challenge at The Paper Players required very little supplies!  This is great when you go to put everything away. :)
I found a cute card from demonstrator Ginger Rabesa where she had sponged inside the bird punch to make her birds. I thought this was a fabulous idea and wanted to use that technique. For some reason it will not let me link to her card directly, but if you enter Mojo304 in her search box it will take you to her lovely card!  I love the black and white and all of the layers she used.  No layers for me though!
This was so simple to make!  I just punched out my bird and cut out a heart with a framelit and used the negatives to sponge inside.  I really wanted to add some bling on there, but I restrained myself to keep it as CAS as possible.  Hard to tell, but I did a little bit of dry embossing at the bottom too.  

Stamp Sets: Countless Sayings 2

  3. Shana this is fabulous! What a great job you did masking and sponging. I never thought to use the bird punch as a stencil. Thanks so much for playing along with my challenge this week at The Paper Players!

  4. This is just soft and feminine and the embossing adds a beautiful touch. What a great one-layer creation! Thanks so much for playing with the Paper Players challenge this week, Shana!
