This is the card I created:
Supplies: Cardstock: Sahara sand card base,
Georgia Pacific White cardstock, Almost Amethyst and Lovely Lilac; Stamps: Victorian Pattern backgrounder and Blooming Violas
(Asela Hopkins Design) by Cornish Heritage Farm - both unmounted; Ink: Sahara sand, Brilliance Graphite Black; Accessories: White grosgrain ribbon, Almost
Amethyst, Certainly Celery and YoYo Yellow SU markers, Gamsol, blending
stump, and colored pencils
So, why do I think this is elegant? The central image is the star attraction. There aren't a ton of accessories cluttering the image. It's just the flowers, their color, and the pop of the muted purples against a simple background that makes it elegant... to me.
There were plenty of other definitions to elegant, ranging from tone on tone or monochromatic to embellished with old world charm. I don't think any one definition is right or wrong... and that's what makes creating / stamping so much fun. It's open to interpretation. A blank page, an uninked stamp... the possibilities are endless!
Thanks for stopping by!
