Less Is More ,,,,,, :-)

Hi all :-) I am back from our little city break to Seville, we had a lovely time even though we picked the only rainy 3 days in 6 months :-) Going around on an open top bus in torrential rain is an experience I think everyone should have ,,,, lol :-)

I have made  2 cards following Chrissie’s sketch over on the Less Is More Challenge ,,, one I really don’t like but will show ya anyway :-)

I used the faux letterpress technique on this using a Sizzix Dots embossing folder and Hero Arts Wet Cement shadow ink. I die cut a Larger Forest Tree from Simon Says Stamp Exclusives dies and added a cute little Wood Veneer Bird from Studio Calico. The  sentiment is a SSS exclusives too and I added some metallic twine to finish.


For this one I used a grey card as the base and stamped a Hero Arts Potted Plant onto a scrap of the same card and divided into 3 portions. I then layered it onto Peppermint Bazzill and used some red fun flock on the flowers and added a few dabs of Platinum Stickles for seeds. I made an extra pot and sprayed with Studio Calico Shine, this looks really gorgeous and shimmery IRL and awful on the photo :-) I went around the edges with a white gel pen and heat embossed the sentiment. 
I am not overly fond of this one but am sure it will come in handy ,,, can never have too many ‘thanks’ cards :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I hope you all have a lovely evening and for those of you in the path of the hurricane I hope you all stay safe  xx thinking of you all xx
