Good afternoon. Firstly I would like to thank everyone that left me encouraging words yesterday regarding the absence of my Mr Mojo - I really do appreciate your support and kindness - thanks.
Secondly I would like to thank Chrissie and Mandi for inspiring me (and many others) to find a new style that I am totally loving - Less is More through their wonderful new challenge blog.
So the card I have to share with you today is for the current theme at Less is More which is One Layer with either a Flower or a Tree.
To make this card I started by creating a masking template with 4 squares die cut so that I could ink through it with 3 shades of Pink Distress Inks - Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick.
Then I stamped the Hero Arts flower image in various positions within the inked square - keeping the mask in place and finally I took the plunge to go freehand round the inked square with a Fineliner - purposely not making the lines straight for a more 'rustic' feel.
The sentiment is from Papermania and has been stamped direct to the card base.
Now I hope it's ok for a few adhesive gems to be added and still keep to the one layer theme.
A touch of Stickles to highlight the flower centres and that's it done.
I really loved creating this.
I would also like to enter this into the Clean & Simple challenge at Totally Papercrafts this week
Hope you are having a fabulous day.
