Less is More - Week 21 - Sketch

OK. A bit more organised this week. I have managed to make a card for the Less is More challenge and upload it to my blog. IN ONE DAY!!!


The card base is glossy holographic card. I cut out three scalloped circles using nesties which I embossed with dots. I distressed the edges using wild honey distress ink.

The flowers were die cut from some acetate that I had left over from THAT challenge using flower shapeabilites. I then stamped over the acetate with a creative expressions stamp and heat embossed with copper meltdust embossing powder.

The flowers were attached to the circles with some copper gem brads.

I stuck the three shapes on top of some copper coloured ribbon.

I finished the card with a sentiment from the Xyron design runner. I originally tried to print the sentiment directly onto the glossy card, but no joy so I printed it onto some scrap card from the card I used for the circles and cut it out and edged with more wild honey ink.

I am entering the card in the following additional challenges:

Charisma Cardz Challenge - white and one other colour.
Secret Crafters Saturday challenge - embossing
