Less is More Week #346

Good morning!

Another Saturday is back with us which brings around another new challenge over at Less is More.  We're back with another Theme challenge this week, and here's our cue card...

Happy Little Stampers continues to be our sponsor for this month so please do play along as it will put you in the running for our monthly prize!

Only one card from me again this week.  I was hoping to find more crafting time this past week but I've had my mum staying with me so my routine has been a bit all over the place and I wanted to spend some time with her in the evenings.

So, here's my DT card and my interpretation of the 'Take Flight' theme...

I chose dandelion spores flying in the wind as my theme idea.  I started by stamping my images in VersaMark on a piece of white cardstock and heat embossed the dandelion, spores and sentiment in white.  I then did some emboss resist and blended with blue and purple Distress Inks to create an ombre background.  To continue the curve theme of the dandelion stem I used some stitched curve dies to cut my panel down and then adhered flat to the card base.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Dandelion Dreams, Flutterby Dreams
  • Ink: VersaMark; Distress Ink - Salty Ocean, Dusty Concord
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White
  • Dies: Mama Elephant - Landscape Trio

Challenge entries:

Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge #259 - Clean and Simple
The Flower Challenge - Challenge #12 - Tic Tac Toe (I chose the top line - Embossing/Distress Inks/Sentiment) - I wasn't sure if a dandelion was a flower but according to Google it is so hopefully my card will qualify! :)

My LIM teamies had some great ideas this week so please do pop over the the main blog if you have time, and follow the links for more info.

That's all from me today, hopefully I can find more crafty time this week and share more with you.  Have a lovely weekend.
