Mod Squad Challenge - Simply Clean

Dear Ones~
This  time it's my turn to host the challenge over at The Mod Squad. I have chosen to do a CLEAN AND SIMPLE card for this challenge. Clean and simple means there is a LOT of blank space, typically white, but I suppose you could use any color. Other than the focal, there is nothing on the card, except a greeting if you want. No embellishments or extras of any kind.

Gina K. has been in the stamping industry since 1998 and started Gina K. Designs in 2007. As the business grew, Gina asked her husband Tom to leave his position as an attorney to join her in the business. Together they built StampTV, their online video website featuring broadcast quality paper crafting videos, galleries, social network for paper crafters and more! Gina now has over 200,000 followers over her various social media networks and video sites from all around the world. Gina’s goal is to continue to offer top quality signature products through her online store Gina K. Designs along with informative and creative crafting videos.
Be sure to check out StampTV for a ton of great videos and techniques. They also have weekly challenges. Shop Gina K Designs.

 Here is my card:

For this card I used a Gina K Designs stamp set by Theresa Momber called By the Sea 2 for the focal and the greeting. I stamped it on Gina K Designs 120# Heavy Base Weight White card stock and colored it with Distress Markers. I used the masking technique to make some of the grasses look like they were behind the Nautilus shell. Then I put the card together with some Gina K Designs Fresh Asparagus Card Stock for a mat.


Here are the Ingredients:  
GKD White Card Stock  
GKD Fresh Asparagus Card Stock
GKD By the Sea 2 Stamp Set
Distress Markers
Stickles for Sand
