Putting Pen to Paper.....

I've pre-scheduled this to go live today, hope it works !! 

Today's project is another of my Clean and Simple (CAS) designs, using the 'direct to paper' technique again.   I've used one of the limited edition Distress Inks - this one is 'Shaded Lilac' and I love the colour.

After applying the DI direct to the base card, I overstamped using black Versafine ink and the pen nib stamp from a set by Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz.  The row of stars underneath is also from a Stampendous/Tim Holtz set. 

I didn't add a sentiment to this one as it would have spoiled the balance of the design and also means the card could be used for virtually any occasion.

I hope you are enjoying my CAS/direct to paper designs as much as I am enjoying creating them.  This is a great technique when you need a few cards in a hurry or are batch making.

Have a great day, whatever you have planned.
