Inkspirational Challenge #299 - Clean and Simple (Optional - Inspired by a Movie) - Be Awesome Today - Watercoloured Sunflower


Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #299, where our challenge for the next two weeks is CAS - Clean and Simple - with an optional twist of Inspired by a Movie. Loads of choices, right!

I watercoloured! Yes I did! I'm not exactly sure which company made the sunflower image; it was part of last year's Crop and Create event. I finally got around to painting it with my distress inks then some splatter with gold paint. So easy and, for a change, I like the results. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz sticker.

A reminder of what we'll be looking for with your Clean and Simple designs:

✅ One main focal point
✅ Lots of OPEN space (doesn't 'have' to be white)
✅ Minimal Layers
✅ Minimal Embellishments

Looking forward to seeing your CAS cards in the gallery, with or without the twist.

Thank you for dropping by!

This sunflower looks impressive in both size and in colors, and I do love the added splatter too.

The watercolouring is beautiful and I love the placement of the sentiment and the deckle edge.
