The title of this homework assignment is Clean and Simple Boutique. I was not sure what the title meant and how I was going to plan and create a card for this homework task. I had to watch again all of the videos to get a better understanding of the task at hand. That was very helpful. Then I had to research and decide which Altenw stamps and inks I was going to use for this homework assignment. I selected the Leaf Cluster stamp set to use the solid image cluster stamp. I used Tim Holtz oxide inks in salty ocean, peacock feathers and iced spruce for stamping and a light green ink for stenciling. I stamped each leaf cluster overlapping the middle image. The ink colors were vibrant and complimented each stamped image. I used the Altenew gradient dot stencil to create the background and add visual interest. A stamped Altenew word sentiment using black ink finished the stamping. The die cut is from a stacked set from My Favorite Things and the rounded corners added visual interest and colorful blue corners. The final step was to use my black glaze pen to add dots to the leaves. This pen is one of my favorites and the ink dots are raised on the paper. I use it often to add the finishing touch to stamped projects. Makes a big difference. Now after completing this homework, I have a better understanding that sometimes less is more but still can be impressive and creative.
