I'm so sorry it's been a whole week since my last post, this week has just flown by and apart from the cards in this post I've not managed to find any crafty time :( That's just how it goes sometimes, I work full-time and some evenings just seem to disappear completely. Oh well, I'm back now so I hope you won't be too hard on me! ;)
So, on with this post, and 8am on a Saturday can only mean one thing....new challenge time at Less is More. 'Yippee' I hear you cry, but when I tell you we're back to our regular One Layer Challenge you may not be so excited! Haha And, our one layer challenge theme this week is...
Please check out our guidelines here if you are unsure of our rules
So, let's get to it. Here's my first card to whet your appetite...
I absolutely love these dandelions by Clearly Besotted, they are so dreamy and I always remember blowing dandelions in the wind and making a wish when I was a child. I simply stamped the images in bright Versa Color pigment inks and then stamped the brushstroke sentiment in black. Super simple! :)
- Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Dandelion Dreams; MFT - Brushstroke Birthday
- Ink: Versa Color - Olive, Magenta, Orange, Violet; Versafine - Onyx Black
Crazy 4 Challenges - Challenge #300 - Something that relies on the wind
Now for my second card...
I stamped and masked the images from a very recently purchased stamp set using a waterproof ink and then coloured the images with some Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and water. I recently bought just a few of these pens and this was my first time using them, I really like them but a bit more practice is required to get used to them. I then stamped the sentiment, from the same set, and finished off with a sprinkling of sequins.
- Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Love Quotes II
- Ink: Archival - Jet Black
- Coloured with Zig Clean Color Brush Pens
- Accents: Doodlebug sequins
Time Out - Challenge #39 - Make Your Mark
D J Kard Creations - NBUS Challenge #5 - Anything Goes (stamp set and Zig pens are both NBUS!)
And finally, card three...
I used a stitched rectangle die to create my de-bossed frame on my card base. Within the frame I stamped the cake image and as the image was a sketchy style I decided to colour it in with coloured pencils, then covered in a layer of clear Wink of Stella. The sentiment was stamped vertically and a few smooth silver gems added to accent.
