Less is More Week 90 - Theme

Hi bloggers! Long time no post. The reason being my daughter is now studying  to pass her LPC (Law Practice Course) before starting her training contract at a law company in Birmingham, so she is using the desk I usually craft at.  

She's gone off into town today for retail therapy and a much deserved rest from her books, so I've taken the opportunity to make a card for this week's Less is More challenge which is:


You can take your inspiration from colours, festivals, seasonal images... whatever... but don't forget to keep it simple and retain that white space!

And here's my card:

I started off by printing the quote directly onto the card.  I then used a background stamp from Stick and Stamp using Tea Dye Distress ink first and then re-inking around the edges with Aged Mahogany and overstamping.  I'm not sure who made the leaf stamp (it's been in my stash for many years).  I used a selection of inks to colour the leaves but then went over with Prisma pencils as the paper was beginning to buckle with the water brush. 

I hope the card doesn't look blurry to you as it does to me (not got my glasses on).

And just before I go I'd just like to wish Mandi the best of luck in her new venture - it sounds very exciting.

Bye until I don't know when.
