Hope you are having a good day, perhaps with a bit of sun even to brighten things up for you :)
Less Is More Challenge. That is to create a one layer card with a coloured card blank ... not so difficult, surely? Teal cardstock seemed a good colour choice and the plan was to create a panel of white embossed flowers with a bit of a twist, i.e.to colour in the petals using a toning marker. This produces the effect of darkening the petals just a shade or so. All went well, the colouring worked and the panel looked good. Then disaster struck. I stamping the sentiment skew whiff ...grrr!!! That will teach me to use the thingamajig for stamping straight!
- 4" square white card base; teal smooth card (Papermill Direct);
- Dawn Bibby Designs Flower & Leaf stamp set; VersaMark; Docrafts Papermania Seafoam White embossing powder; turquoise ProMarker - to colour in the flower petals;
- Crafty Stamps Thank You stamp; Memories black ink pad;
- teal paper string from stash
Not sure I'm up to having another attempt at the LIM challenge ... I think I know when I'm beaten :(
I'm not sure that this qualifies as a snippet card. After all, the flower panel did start off as part of a card made from a new sheet of card! So I won't be rushing over to Pixie's playground for fear of being expelled :)
I find, to my surprise, I have a couple of birthday cards to make this month, one for a brother and the other for one of my granddaughters. Not sure why I'm surprised, after all these same birthdays are an annual event!
I'd better be off and think about those cards then :)
Take care everyone and happy crafting,
