Less is More Week 126

Hi there

Apologies for being a bit quiet this week, I just haven't been able to find the time to make any cards but I wanted to make at least one before the week was over so I decided to have a go at this week's challenge at Less is More before the challenge ends tomorrow.  The very talented Hannelie of Desert Diva is a Guest Designer this week, so if you're not familiar with Hannelie's fab designs go take a look here, you won't be disappointed.

The trigger word this week is SAND.  At first I drew a blank but then I remembered a stamp set I recently acquired free with Creative Stamping magazine.  The set is by Clear Impressions and features some seaside designs.

I decided to create a beach scene, why, I really don't know!  This is not in my comfort zone AT ALL!  So I found myself reaching for my chalks which have been abandoned of late and this is what emerged...

To be honest, I absolutely hated this when I first completed the chalking and stamping!  I was using a larger piece of white card to chalk the background and it looked a bit of a mess.  I then cut it down to size before deciding where to place the sentiment and by the time I matted and layered it which framed the whole picture, its now starting to grow on me a little.  I coloured the deck chair with FlexMarkers.  Initially I was just going to put it aside and not share it with you guys but then I thought 'hey, a challenge is a challenge' so here it is.

Materials used:
  • Chalks: Craf-T Products - Decorating Chalks
  • Stamps: Clear Impressions
  • Ink: Impress: Jet Black
  • Coloured with FlexMarkers
  • Cardstock from stash

As always, thanks for visiting today and hopefully I will have more cards to share with you over the weekend :)

Take care
