Just Sayin'

Hello All,

For today I have a simple and quick card to share. The Less is More challenge blog has a faboulous sketch challenge with endless possibilities.. So I took one last look at it and the light bulb went off. So here it is..



I had no idea how I was ever going to use this retired SU stamp.. It was free so couldn't say no.. The monochromatic design keeps the busyness of the rulers in check. It would make a great card for someone with a sense of humor; like my husband. I think we will appreciate it..

Entering Challenge:
Less is More: Week 238
Sketch #16
How to:
  1. Stamped SU ruler image on white card stock
  2. Colored the image using a monochromatic color scheme with Mexpy alcohol markers.
  3. Cut image at an angle per the sketch.
  4. Traced diagonal line from the image and stamped diagonal sentiment.
  5. Stamped 'Just Sayin'' once in black and then again with VersaMark Ink and heat set using white embossing powder.
  6. Colored the white embossed sentiment the same color as a ruler.
That was it.. I think it is a bit snarky and that is why I just love it!! Take all and leave a comment if you'd like.. 

All the Best,
Shawna
