PaperArtsy Challenge - Joanne Wardle Inspiration

Morning All,

This week over on the fab PaperArtsy Blog, Joanne Wardle is inspiring us with her well known clean and simple style of crafting.  I love this style but often find it very difficult to pull off successfully as it means your stamping, positioning, etc., has to be spot on so something that looks deceptively easy to do isn't at all.

Now unfortunately for me, Joanne has been showcasing PaperArtsy's smashing Halloween stamps of which I don't have a single one which is a pity because I absolutely love their selection.  Having looked at them carefully now I think I might have indulge in a couple of sets.  They're bound to come in handy for my grandchildren's future parties ;D!  For now I've had to improvise with stamps from my stash.

Anyway, this is my card taking inspiration from Joanne's first project this week.


and a close up so hopefully you can see the sparkle around the gravestone and bird


I'm off to link up to the PaperArtsy blog and I'll be back with my second card very shortly.

Hugs
Lesley  Xx

Very, very impressive, Lesley! I don't think I would have the skill to create such 'perfectly simple' cards. You've pulled this off brilliantly. Julie Ann xx

It's awesome Lesley. Great stamps you've used there and I love the paint smoosh(?) of purple.
