Less is More - Sketch

Back again hehe, so easy to put cards together when you already have bits made.
Followed the sketch again at Less is More and used Christmas Rose stamp by Sheena Douglas. Image is coloured with copics and some liquid pearls added to the centres. Used a dotty embossing folder and stamped the sentiment direct to the card.

Thank you again for stopping by :)

Less is More - Sketch

Well what an absolutley fantastic week Less is More had with their 1000 card challenge, I have never seen so many entries, really brilliant effort and hats off to Mandi & Chrissie to commenting on every entry you girls are amazing!!

This weeks challenge is a nice easy sketch and I had already got bits ready for cards last week, but i got hit with a nasty cold so didn't get to complete them all!!
Used a Polkadoodles stamp and for the first time got out my brayer, which I have had for months. Used a big & juicy and brayer to create the background, Barbara Gray makes that technique look so easy, took me a couple of tries and to be honest it's still not the best but thankfully only need a small piece of the card. I didn't have a stamp that says anything about home or new home and didn't really want to computer generate anything and stick it on the card so used some See-Ds letters which I have had for years and again never used, why do we purchase these things?!

Not overly sure about this card, but will be adding it to the collection I am making for my mother. Have a fab weekend and thank you for looking :)

Less is More 1000 card challenge

Well here's number 2, I know very similar to the first but really liked this idea. Am going to use these cards to make a collection for my Mom all boxed up pretty for Christmas so she is never without an emergency card :)

Less Is More 1000 Challenge

Really quick post tonight - have been trying to get cards made for this challenge since Saturday, but work, life, cold etc just keep getting in the way!!!!
Less is More want a 1000 entries this week for their challenge and they are just over half way (never going to get round all those cards to comment - lol). My friend came round last night to do a bit of crafting and she had this lovely stamp, no clue what it is and made a one layer card using it. A bit of Tim Holts tattered rose for the back ground and stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. Have got another card and a few more to put together so will hopefully be back in a bit - got to go feed the kids!

Less is More - Metallic

Very quick card today for the Less is More challenge, which is to use something that has a metallic finish.
I have had this metallic paper for ages, think it came free with a magazine and have never known what to do with it. So put it through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder and cut a butterfly from it. Not very easy to photograph, hope you can see that it's purple :)

If you have never visited the Less is More blog you really are missing something special and there are already some fantastic cards on there for this challenge.
