It's Less is More new challenge time and this week we have a theme challenge for you. And the theme for this week is...
Please remember to keep you creations clean and simple.
Not only did I struggle with the theme this week, my creative mojo decided to go for a wander to who knows where! I did manage to create three cards to share with you though, so here they are...
I stamped the phone in pink and die cut with the co-ordinating die. The rest of the images were stamped separately in various inks and the headphones onto a white cardstock panel. I rounded the bottom corners of the card base and the panel to echo the shape of the phone, adhered the phone flat to the panel, and the panel was popped up on 3D foam

I had the idea for this next card in my mind for a while after I saw the challenge theme. It took three attempts for me to be able to actually translate it onto a card!
I masked off the V shape with post-its and the curves of the Wi-Fi logo were created using a straight stripe stamp which I manipulated into a curve. The three curves were embossed in platinum embossing powder. Because I used a textured cardstock the embossing was a little uneven but I actually like the effect it created. Instead of the usual dot at the bottom of the logo I changed this for a heart and this was also heat embossed. The coloured cardstock was cut with a stitched rectangle and the computer generated sentiment (font - Frosting for Breakfast) was cut with a tag die. As I changed the dot for a heart I thought this sentiment could perhaps be used for a Valentine's card, maybe? A few glazed gems were added to accent.

Just Add Ink - Challenge #280 - Glimmer
And my third card this week...
I found this cute digi image at Sliekje's Digi Stamps. The images created by Angelique are gorgeous and have a sketchy feel so I printed this one off and coloured it in, very sketchy, using my Derwent Coloursoft Pencils. I added a sentiment stamped in black and then cut the image down and framed it on two sides with black cardstock. I then layered this up with some patterned paper which was cut using some fishtail dies.
