Usually I'm all about color, but every once in awhile it's fun to do a neutral card. I happened to have some scraps of kraft, natural, and black cardstock sitting on my table, and I knew I had this piece of Faux Handmade Paper (Technique Junkies) in my stash, so it seemed like a good time to go neutral.
The stamps I used are from Starving Artistamps, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and highlighted with a white Prismacolor Pencil. I added some simple doodled borders and a scrap of ribbon and had the whole thing put together in 15 minutes flat. I can tell you...THAT doesn't happen very often in my craft room!
For those of you who want to follow along, I also have an update to my WIP. I doubt you can see in these photos, but I went back over all the white with a Prismacolor Lightfast white pencil, which made the whites whiter...in real life, anyway. I also finished the white bouy with the "X", added some ropes (those knots are harder to do than I would have guessed) and started on the blue and red buoy.
