Clean and SImple and Monochromatic

I know, two thins you NEVER hear from me...clean and simple OR monochromatic. Both are very hard for me...I love lots of color and lots of layers!

But I took on 2 main challenges with this one, to keep it simple for this weeks Splitcoast Stampers CAS challenge (to use cut up sentiments) and to stay with one color and neutrals, the challenge at Catch the Bug this week.

This is the chosen one, from the Har Repotter collection no less, by Bugaboo Stamps. Ive chosen to keep him mainly in tones of grays to match my Creative Imaginations Harry Potter paper. I threw in a touch of burgundy for my color (Gryffindor colors).

The sentiment I created on my mac, its a quote from The Goblet of Fire. Other supplies used: Petite Oval Nestabilties, Zig zag border punch by EK, Copic Markers, Creative Impressions ribbon.

Challenge List:
Splitcoast Stampers: CAS112 Cut up Sentiments
Catch the Bug: Monochromatic
Pile it On: Cutie Patootie
Cards for Men: Embossing (the punch embosses)
Meljen's: Punches
Digital Tuesday: for the kids
