Less is More – Week 20

Just a quick post from me tonight as I wanted to share my creation for this weeks challenge over at LIM where the theme is Monograms.  My followers will know I have been on holiday for a week and only got back this afternoon. So I have had a week to think about this challenge and really I’ve been a bit stumped all week. It wasn’t until I actually sat down with my stash that this idea came to me. My card is a wedding card for my Sister and I’ve used her and her fiancé's initials as the Monogram:

Apologies for the poor photo, it’s so gloomy here this afternoon and that always makes for a bad photo.  Anyhoo onto the card… I stamped a strip of purple card with a small flourish stamp from a Hearts set by Hero Arts, embossed and then washed over it with a mix of Perfect Pearls and water. The Monograms were also stamped and embossed and then I stamped the heart (from the same Hero Arts set) over the top, also adding glitter glue to the letters. A bit of matting and layering on some purple, white and black card and finally a rub on sentiment.

I’ll edit with the supplies later.

Ta for now xxx

  6. I don't know how I missed this card last week... I checked at 10pm when the collection closes and at that time I had commented on all that were there!
    How strange!
    It's a lovely card, thank you so much!
