Because of the Splitcoast Stampers directive to use humor for this week's "ways to use it" challenge, I got out my two Deep Red humor sentiments. I finished the first project. It came out very nice, with a more serious look about it, typical of a card I would make. For this sentiment I thought I'd add a level of complexity and use today's SCS Inspiration Challenge which is a minimalist challenge.

Ok, so for the second challenge, I needed to depict perhaps one layer, perhaps make it monotone, and have a majority of white space. Now in between each of these was an OR not an AND, but I thought I'd make a stretch goal for all three which is a huge leap for me, something this basic I've never even considered trying, but because of the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge I am going to go for it! Right off the bat, because my sentiment is quite large, it was already putting me at a disadvantage to try for majority white space. But I was able to look at minimalizing the embellishments. I chose StazOn black for the sentiment and Hickory Smoke Distress Ink for the "other" stampings. I made a decoder picture to help map out the meaning behind the elements on the single layer. Here's the decoder:

  • Green: great ideas shown as script
  • Red: an APPROVED great idea... I chose this humorous postal stamp that if you read very carefully it says - Approved by Censor 325. Love it!
  • Green: This is my white space which is where the voices in my head are quiet
  • Purple: This is an image in my head because mixed in with the silence and the voices there has to be images, right?

Here's the link to the insprational pin that helped me make my color choices: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/157626055684979790/

Who would've thought a one layer, monotone, white space card could be so complicated that it needs a map!

Here's the challenges I've entered with this project:
