LIM - Sketch 4

Here is my entry for the Less Is More challenge this week which is a sketch. It needs to be used exactly as it is, although that's not too bad for me as I tend to use sketches as they are anyway. I have made two cards as I liked the first one so much I thought I'd try it as a OLC as well. So for the first one I have taken a strip of white CS and stamped it with a butterfly from the PTI Butterfly Dreams set using Memento Lulu Lavender and Grape Jelly inks. I have then mounted this to PTI Plum Pudding CS and added this strip to the card blank. I have stamped the greeting {also from the Butterfly Dreams set} in black ink. Rhinestones added to finish. The second card uses the same inks and stamps but without the CS strip.



STAMPS: Papertrey Ink. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, Lulu Lavender, Grape Jelly. CS: Craftwork Cards, Papertrey Ink. EMBELLISHMENTS: Rhinestones by Sarah's Cards Ltd.

Thank you for visiting me today, I thankfully now seem to be over this bug. I have my work training on Monday but after that I am off for the rest of the week! YAY! Hoping to get some crafting done as well as some more purging of my supplies, I already have another giveaway lined up. Oh and don't forget my candy below!

  12. Good to hear you're over your bug Michelle and LOVE the effect of this card, it's stunning :) Kate x

    P.s. can I ask where you get your PTI stash from? Do you buy from the main site as the postage seems very high and it's putting me off but I see the stamps you use and want them too!!

  15. They are both beautiful Michelle. My favourite would be the first one with the layering. It makes the butterflies seem more alive.

  16. Both simply lovely (and you would KNOW I love the chosen colour way!) but I THINK I slightly prefer the matted card

  22. Both gorgeous cards. I love the two-tone butterflies. I always ink the darker color on the outer edges, but I love the way you've done it with the deeper purple in the middle. Just beautiful. :) Ann Y.
