Punctuation...

LateBlossom has started to post One Layer Card Challenges on Wednesday! What is a Clean and Simple gal to do but play along!! This week it's all about punctuation. Susan posted some pretty gorgeous and clever samples...here is my card:


Stamps: SU (supersize symbols), A muse (thank you for everything)
Ink: Versamagic (aquatic splash, ocean depth)
Paper: SU (Kraft)
Accessories: SAMJ, liquid pearls, glimmer mist


Can you guess which symbol I used? I pulled out a never-inked SU set, Supersize Symbols for this one and used the quotation marks to make a border. They were stamped along a line and then stamped upside down again to make the pattern. I added some liquid pearls at the point where the quotation marks joined each other to cover up the slightly inconsistent spacing between them (what would I do without my Stampamajig???). I added the sentiment on top and spritzed the whole card with Tattered angels glimmer mist. I overdid it a bit with the mist and the card dried pretty wonky. It was pretty wonky still after a night under a big book...

Oh well...it was a super fun challenge...I look forward to more of Susan's challenges! Thanks for stopping by.

wow, those quotation marks make a great border!! What a great 'out of the box' idea!!! And that was really smart to use the liquid pearls to cover up the middles!!

Super-fun card! I love the quotation mark idea -- they make a beautiful border!

How completely creative! And I adore how you used the perfect pearls. The glimmer mist doesn't show in the photo for me, but I'll bet that really looks awesome with the pearl dots!
