Hi visitor - thanks for dropping by to see my entry to this week's Less is More challenge which is:
Here's my card:
This beautiful tiger stamp is from Sheena's Taste of India range. I just stamped the image and masked him off. I them used a circle stencil to create the background. The sentiment stamp is also from the same set.
I've stenciled the background using a 'That Special Touch' clock mask and an Anna Griffin inkpad which is a lovely subtle colour. The stamp is from Lisa B Designs which I just coloured very lightly with watercolour pencils. A very simple CAS card. I hope you like it.
St. George's Day takes place on April 23rd every year, recognising the patron saint of England, apparently made famous for slaying a dragon and saving a distressed maiden. There are not usually many celebrations in honour of this day, so this will be our little salute! You don't have to portray elements of this story, but whatever your imagination conjures up with this theme. We would however like an explanation if your link is tenuous! Just have fun!
And here's my card:
I don't have any stamps of dragons, saints or heroes so I found these fab digi stamps and took them into Serif and managed to make a group out of them. The cake and flame are also digi stamps and I put the flame on top of the cake to look like those ditzy characters set it alight. I coloured them with Prisma pencils (I've not had a play with them for ages so it was fun doing some colouring). The sentiment was printed from the computer. I recently bought some TODO basic square dies and they are great, brilliant sizes to mat and layer; they're bigger than the Spellbinder squares.
Thanks for dropping by
The challenge this week from the Less is More team is 3 stamps. You can use three different stamps or the same stamp stamped multiple times.
I've used three different stamps from two different Card-io stamp sets. I love Card-io stamps and I have loads of their sets - more than any others.
I used the same flower stamp and stamped it in three different colours and then added the leaf stamp. The watering can was inked in two different colours. Because I'd used my quota of stamps I couldn't add a sentiment so I added a clay butterfly which I just swiped over with the same colour ink as one of the flowers to fill in the top corner. I added some glossy accents to look like water coming from the can, but I'm not sure they show up particularly well on the photo.
