Less is More – Sketch

It’s so cold here today. We’ve got a little fine snow but none of it is settling, thank goodness.  This isn’t a warm house, even with the heating on full blast. Little One and I are wearing layers and lot’s of them, which is ok for a bit of blogging, but I feel strange trying to do the house work in so many layers of clothes.

Anyhoo, enough waffle. This week at LIM Chrissie and Mandi have set a sketch challenge. We have to keep it as is, so no rotating or moving the sentiment.

I made this card on Saturday but I have been trying to get a decent picture. So here we go


I masked with sticky notes, inked the background with green VersaMagic and then with the masks still in place stamped the butterfly background in Memento London Fog. After removing the masks I stamped the flowers (from Kanban) using Memento Pine Green onto copy paper to remove some of the ink and then onto the card. I then stamped the flowers again straight onto the card. Using the individual flowers I over stamped in Memento Rose bud and embossed with clear EP. Finally a sentiment from a Sheena Douglas set and a bit of bling on the flowers.

For once a LIM card that I am really happy with and it’s a one layer. I like this sketch and have a few more ideas so I might have a play when Little One has his afternoon nap so I make be back to share another later.
