Less is More Sketch - Take 2

























Do you ever have an idea in your head for a card and, when you've actually made it, you think it would have been better to have stayed in your head? Well this is one of those cards :0) Nothing at all like the picture in my head and not a card I like a great deal but thought I would show you anyway!
It is of course for the Less is More Sketch challenge (top right) and my second post of the day.
I started by making a mask from a sheet of copy paper using a Circles Framelit, then sponged Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz to give a circle of colour. The image is from the Hostess set, Simply Sketched, coloured with Chocolate Chip and Pear Pizzazz markers, and the little tufts are grass are from Dinoroar (now retired). I cut out the sentiment from the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies (also retired) in Pear Pizzazz.
Thanks for stopping by, back soon

  2. I know what you mean. I had real problems with the sketch, I think it's the off centre sentiment. I think you've done a magnificent job.

  6. I have those days all the time :) Thanks for sharing your card, even when it wasn't what you thought. It like the idea of using that image for a "new home" card.
