Less is More Sketch

The Less is More challenge this week is a sketch (bottom left) and, despite having lots of jobs to do, I had to have a go at this first!
I decided to do a Get Well card using the Fruit & Flowers stamp set and this is what I came up with. I started by masking a panel with post-it notes and inked the stamps using a Real Red & Old Olive markers. After removing the post-its I drew two lines across with the Old Olive marker and added part of a sentiment from Hopeful Thoughts underneath.
For this card I used the Naturals White cardstock which has quite a rustic feel to it - not too 'pretty' if you know what I mean. Stamping directly onto this cardstock doesn't give the clear, crisp image you usually get from SU stamps but, sometimes, I think this is a nice look for a change.
I love the sketch the ladies have given us this week, very simple and understated so I'm sure I will be back with more entries!
Well I don't know about you but we didn't get the snow that was promised last night (thankfully!). However it does feel very cold and icy out there at the moment so I think I will leave the jobs, that need me to go out, until later :0)
Have a good weekend and I'll be back soon x
