Painter's Prayer

One layer cards. I admire them from afar...I try it...and I'm not a fan of my own. It's like shabby chic cards...I fail EVERY time I try one of those too! Clean and Simple just not in my wheel house I guess... I find myself perusing my stash of ribbons...playing with buttons and brads....

I DO however like trying new techniques. This one is the painters tape technique. It was fun, easy, and painless! Although I will admit to tossing my first attempt.
