My Clean and Simple Genius entry for MFT’s 2022 Card Design Superstar contest.


Hi All! This year I am all in on MFT’s Superstar Contest. I have this entry for Clean and Simple and I will enter the Coloring Virtuoso too! For my Clean and Simple card I used a set I have had for a while and used often! Gill Friends, is a great set with all different fish and great punny sentiments. Now, on with the Show and Tell…


I kept the layers at a minimum, which if you follow me you know can be a bit of a struggle. I do love the way the tiny plaid looks just barely peeking around the edge.


My fishy is done all in BG’s with a bit of Chartreuse PC989 Prismacolor added for the tiniest hint of yellow.


Nuvo Drops in Aqua Plains make my bubbles bubbly with a hint of color.

  • Fish: BG49, BG13. BG11, BG34, BG32
