Make it simple Monday Quite Meadow

 Hello and welcome to another Make it Simple Monday with me , Cary. This week I will be using the gorgeous Quiet Meadow stamp set . The set is a great combination of images and sentiments that are especially good if your style is more vintage or collage . But for today it's  all about clean and simple stamping.

#simplestamping is a great way to keep it clean and simple and uses minimal surplies. In fact today's samples are SIP ones. SIP stands for Stamps, Ink and Paper. I have used 1 stamp set, Quiet Meadow, 1 paper, white and   2 colours of ink. The ink colours I've  chosen are a  grey, called basic grey , and a lovely lilac called fresh freesia. 
Both my samples use the same stamps from the set but I've  used them slightly differently on each card.
For my first sample I inked my focal image, the long stemmed flower, up and then stamped it onto scrap paper. I then huffed over the stamp to refresh the remaining ink and stamped that onto my card. This is called generational inking and is a  great technique for those starting out, or those with limited supplies as it give you tones or shades of colour from 1 ink pad.
I  then used the speckles stamp and the lilac ink to add a touch of colour to the card. The sentiment was stamped in the basic grey but at full strength.  And that was it!

I then used the same supplies to create a second card with a different look.
Once again I used the generational inking technique.
