The theme this week at Craft Your Passion is CLEAN & SIMPLE .So if you fancy playing along with the chance to win some fantastic digi stamps and see the rest of the DT’s amazing work please click on the link.You can also add your name to become a GDT!! 

Here I’ve worked with the darling little ‘Boy with plane’ from Lauretta’s Digital Stamps and coloured him with ProMarkers.I decided given the theme I would shy away from the world of DPs and use some Cuttlebug embossing folders.I have to admit I don’t use these nearly as much as I should!To add extra interest I embossed on some Core’dinations Whitewash card then lightly sanded to reveal a subtle amount of colour.I thought the Kraft would give a good contrast.I’ve had this pack about a month and this is the first time I’ve delved into it.How bad am I at buying stuff and then not using it?VERY!!I also dug out some buttons that I’ve had since I first started card making in 2006 – just to confirm the point.I finished off with some good old hairy string.I didn’t actually buy this – it tied the price ticket onto a pair jeans.See I can be good sometimes and do my bit to recycle 😉 Not only is this stuff a great way to finish off a boy’s card it also gives,coupled with the kraft,the feeling of a package tied with string being delivered via Airmail!I love it when a plan comes together!
