March Clean and Simple Challenge

This week I tried to create something as simply as I could.
I started with LJ919 Art Nouveau Flourish
It reminded me of the fibers in mulberry paper. So I pasted the image on white mulberry paper with pearlescent paste. Let dry.
Wet the edges of the mulberry paper and gently pull to create the feathered edge.
Attach to paper with a jeweled brad. Layer on decorative paper. I started with mottled turquoise and layered that onto black lizard paper before attaching to card front.

Tah - dah! Quick, clean and simple.

Make sure to go through the other team blogs for more inspiration. Also don't forget to go to Dream it up for your chance to win stencils so you can create your own clean and simple designs.

Thank you to those who are participating in our challenge and posting your own creations! We love it!!
