It's new challenge time over at Less is More and we have a great Theme challenge for our LIMettes this week which is...
What's Outside Your Window
(you can use your imagination and dreams!)
We also have a lovely Guest Designer joining us this week, and someone from my neck of woods, Lou from A Devon Kitchen Table. If you have the time please pop over to her blog and leave her some love :)
Ok, my first card is quite realistic for what's usually outside my window. Until about a fortnight ago I think a day hadn't gone by this year without us having some rain! Pretty normal for England so not just April showers!
On a white cardstock panel I masked a square and used Distress Ink to blend the blue background. I then stamped the stems, flower heads and the raindrops. After the mask was removed I stamped the sentiment and added some hand drawn dash lines with a black fine liner pen.
- Ink: Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass; Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versa Color - Evergreen, Rose Red and Sky Gray
- Stamps: Clearly Besotted - A Little Something, April Showers Additions, April Showers II
- Pen: Derwent Graphik Line Maker
CASology - Week 189 - Doodle (hopefully my hand drawn dash lines will qualify!)
For the next card I created a view I would love to see from my window. I live in a first floor flat and have a very small garden, and as there are lots of cats in my neighbourhood a bird bath wouldn't be a success!
I printed the digi image onto some white cardstock and coloured it in with my some Flexmarkers. I used a stitched rectangle die to create the panel and stamped the sentiment before popping it up on 3D foam. Super simple.
- Digi image: A Day for Daisies - Daisy Bird Bath
- Stamp: Happy Little Stampers - Doodled Flowers
- Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
- Die: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Rectangles
Moving Along with the Times - Challenge #16 - In the Garden
Right, I'm going to wind up this post as I'm having internet problems which is driving me mad. Thanks so much for visiting today, I hope to see you in the gallery this week.
