IC544: Three Different Cards

So, when we think of clean-and-simple design, it's easy for me to forget the range of styles you can achieve.  My personal style tends to be super clean and simple. But when I played with the IC544 Challenge on Splitcoast, I found several different inspiration pieces that absolutely yielded wildly different results...at least to my eyes.

First, a watercolor sparkly pop of color in bright, autumnal shades.

Next, my favorite of the bunch, a crisp, clean, and ever-so-basic card.

Finally, a grunge style resist in blues and greens.



Inspired by several pins here


Soft. Crisp. Loose. Whichever style you prefer, they are all one layer, ink, and paper.

Which DO you prefer?



Supplies
Will edit to add later...no time to look them all up right now. I'm turning into a pumpkin!

  3. Your third one really speaks to me because it is more of a shock to know you make it, and was pleasantly surprised!

  7. I like your grunge card the best, but mostly because of the colors you used.

  8. I love the colors of the first card. I love the simply sweet message of the second card. But the third card speaks to me as a card maker on oh so many levels.

  9. The first is my favorite. Love how the yellow, gray and burgundy look together - and the curvy leaves with the rounded rectangle with the upright but curvy sentiment!

  10. Love the freedom of the grunge card but the umbrella one is a wonderful example of what you do best - convey a feeling/sentiment with a minimal use of ink.
