Clean and Simple Card Set

When I saw the Stampotique Challenge to make some Clean and Simple cards I thought it was the perfect chance for me to try this style that is so... well, not my style.

I imagined classy and I made this:


Yeah... missed the mark a bit.

But it was so much fun that I made a whole set - slightly less bloody but coordinated.



She has an umbrella so I made the ground wet. Makes sense, right?

This chick looks like she's vouge-ing at an art gallery:


So I gave her some abstract art to pose in front of.

Clean and simple is a hoot! 
I loved not worrying about adhesive and layers and gobs of stuff. 
This was just pure self-expression. 
It's good for the soul.

Here's the set:
