Clean and Simple - Neil Walker

Morning all,

Welcome to yet another weekend, hope it is not going to be
 a wet one!
As I write this, it has been raining all day, not so
good for the school holidays.

Today, we are featuring another clean and simple 
project, this time by Neil.

Neil says ......

I have to confess, I don't think I am very good at this but
 hey, I try.....

Trim a piece of white card to 7 x 7".
Use a scrap of card to mask off approx two thirds of
 the piece.
Lay the mask onto the card and use Twisted Citron
 Distress ink to colour.

Ink over this with Hickory Smoke Distress ink.
Remove the mask and scrap card.
Run a thin strip of double sided tape. along the inked edge
 and add a piece of white ribbon.
Add to the card blank with double sided tape.

Die cut a small heart from thin card using the Primitive heart die.

Paint with white crackle paint.
When dry, cover with Patina Green Antiquing cream and rub off. 
Add to the card as seen.

Ink up the sentiment with Watering Can Archival ink.

Mask off the area you don't want to use with tape and stamp.

Well I think you've nailed it Neil, brilliant!!
I really like the clean and simple look.

So if you want to use the same as Neil, this is 
what you'll need.....

Don't forget to let us know what you think, we always 
like to hear your comments!

OK, I'll be back tomorrow with a new Challenge, 
don't forget it is the last few days of July if 
you are following the Calendar Challenge, get

Have a great weekend,
