Thank You Card

I've been on a bit of a 'clean and simple' kick lately! It can be a real challenge to dial it back and create an effective layout with minimal layering and embellishment.  I'm always inspired by Paula Whittaker's amazing CAS creations!

The gorgeous Third Coast seahorses are delightful in this super clean layout. This background has been created using Carribean Sea Kaleidacolor ink on a distressed solid stamp. The images have been stamped using Onyx Black VersaFine ink. I tried adding some gems and pearls in various configurations but nothing seemed as nice as keeping it tidy!
