Right? Verrrry clean-and-simple! The card base is think Whisper White cardstock and the [retired] image Love is Kindness was stamped in Archival Basic Black ink. I almost stamped it in the middle of the card but at the last minute moved it to the lower corner. I think it's a little more interesting and less predictable that way. My stamp-a-ma-jig is an invaluable tool for this kind of design decision. With the image stamped on the clear plastic sheet, I can play around with the layout until I figure out where it would look best.
Tulips are my favorite spring flower and yellow tulips are even better! I had so much fun playing with my [discontinued] Blendabilities markers last week, that I pulled them out again to color the tulips. I used light & dark Daffodil Delight for the flowers and dark Wild Wasabi for the stems. If you look close, you can see that I also made a thin wash of Soft Sky around the image using a Blender Pen and Soft Sky ink.
Lastly, I stamped the image a second time on a piece of scrap paper and fussy cut the newspaper bundle. I wrapped it with Linen Thread and popped it up with dimensionals. It adds the right amount of dimension to this otherwise uber CAS card!
