Less is More Inspiration
You may well be wondering what these gorgeous shoes have to do with cardmaking well they are this week's Inspiration picture for the LIM challenge.
Now, as I don't own any shoe stamps, I used the colours and the tall slim image as the inspiration for my card. Come and take a look
I used a Naturals Ivory card base with a panel of Basic Black and Very Vanilla running down the left side. For the stripes I simply scored a few lines down the length of the Very Vanilla before attaching it to the black. I stamped the sentiment tag from Chalk Talk and cut it out with the co-ordinating framelit. This was then fixed to the card and a piece of Basic Black Taffeta ribbon attached to the top with glue dots. The flower from Stippled Blossoms was stamped in Basic Black and fussy cut with paper snips then added to the card with a dimensional.
A really quick and simple card but one which I am (unusually) quite pleased with.
The weather forecast for today in this part of the country says rain but, at the moment, it's looking quite good. Temperatures are down a fair bit which suits me down to the ground. I don't function well at high temperatures - though, having said that, I'm not too sure that I function very well at any temperature these days :0)
Whatever you're doing and whatever the weather have a good weekend. Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back soon x
