SOS 426: KISS (Keep It Simple, Sister!)


Teammate Donna has cooked up the perfect challenge for us: Keep It Simple, Sister!

The world is so crazy,  a nice simple challenge was what I needed... thanks, Donna!

Here's my simple card:

  • Rubbernecker Stamps owl "Preston" bought in 2018 at the stamp expo in Sacramento, CA... never been inked.  Hard to believe because he is so cute!
  • Sentiment from a Richard Garay pack that had a beard... I bought it last year from Tuesday Morning. 
  • I used Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers with a waterbrush (because the markers leak now...) in Reef and Sand
  • I also used Tombow markers from my only Tombow set: the pastels! (I almost bought more Tombows Saturday but told myself NO since I don't use the ones I have enough... now can I???)
  • Also used a couple Spectrum Noir pens for the steam and the shadowing to balance Preston.  I love the grey set of Spectrum Noirs, and recommend them to everyone.   I purchased mine years ago from JoAnn's (I think) but saw some sets at Tuesday  Morning recently for $5.99... good buy!
  • Glossy Accents for the eyes
  • Fiskars clipper for the corners
Thanks for visiting!
