Less is More
A really quick card today for the Less is More challenge as I should be doing housework and more sorting of my craft room and NOT crafting! However, despite telling myself I wasn't even going to look to see what the challenge was until much later I couldn't resist and then, of course, I just had to go and make my card. Oh ladies you really do have a lot to answer for :0)
This week Chrissie & Mandi have set the challenge of a one layer card using birds and there has to be lots of white space which really isn't a problem for me as I have always loved the simplicity of this style of card (even before I discovered the LIM site!)
I started with a plain white, square card blank and stamped the Young Vermillion in Early Espresso on the right hand side of the card then, using my Stamp-a-ma-Jig, I stamped the second one so the branches joined. I lightly coloured in the birds with a blender pen and added just a touch of Certainly Celery to both the birds and the branch. Again using the Stamp-a-ma-Jig I positioned the sentiment from Vintage Vogue in Early Espresso so it looked almost like an extension of the branch and finished the card with a Real Red heart which is a stamp from Create a Cupcake (a brand new stamp set in the Spring Mini).
I ventured out into my extremely cold conservatory to take the photos and, through the window, I could see two sparrows sitting on a very frosty Magnolia tree in exactly the same position as on my card (minus the heart of course!!) but as soon as I lifted my camera to take a shot of them they flew off - typical.
Have a lovely weekend and keep warm - it seems like winter may have finally arrived.
