Modern Woman; Clean and simple

After the mess I made last week I have something clean and simple.  As much as I love getting funky and messy, I am a huge fan of negative white space in a composition . 

For todays clean and simple card I use portions of two Stampotioque stamps;

modern woman - Janet Klein
splattered mug - France Papillon

I used post-it notes to mask off half of the modern woman image and stamped with black dye ink.  I used Bic markers to color the image.  A piece of scrap paper matched the colors chosen for an offset stamping of "splattered mug" with coffee Archival Ink.   I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in brushed corduroy around the edges of the paper scrap.

I was pleased that gluing the cellophane wrapper (from flowers) with a UHU stick did the trick!  For balance, I added a harmonious piece of scrap to anchor the composition.  If you don't have and printed cellophane masking the area and stamping with a text block would do the trick. Stampotique has so many nice text stamps that would do the trick!

The woman in the stamp is Leah Klein.  I told her story in an earlier post using another stamp created in her image.  Find the story here.


  1. I'm not so big on creating with white space - I'm not very good at leaving white LL but this looks so effective it makes me want to try it! Love it Janet - a great vintage feel.

  2. My jaw literally hit the deck when I saw this one! Fabulous, Jo x

  3. First, a lovely creation, Janet! I am a vintage fan, so both the image and color have a strong appeal for me! Then, of course, I couldn't agree more about using just portions of the stamps for a totally new look. It not only expands your collection, but increases the value in my book! Thanks for sharing today! This is great!
