Clean and Simple 17

This week's clean and simple challenge on Splitcoast was to be inspired by your choice of beach towels or tote bags from Land's End. I chose this one.I took my inspiration from the colors and pattern and kept it "clean and simple" to come up with this. I stamped the pattern from Background Basics: Retro with onyx black VersaFine, and colored it with pink passion for the dots and a combo of celery and bashful blue for the diamonds. The bird, from Bird Watching Additions, is stamped with Raspberry Fizz and black, then I added black to the dots with a Zig Millennium pen and a crystal eye. Stamps- Bird Watching Additions, Background Basics: Retro, Simple Little Things (PTI)
Paper- white, black, PTI raspberry fizz, aqua mist
Ink- onyx black VersaFine, PTI raspberry fizz
Accessories- ribbon tag trio die (Spellbinders), paper piercer, PTI raspberry fizz satin ribbon, rhinestones
