It's hard to believe that the Less is More challenge is 4 years old! I remember when Chrissie and Mandi first started this challenge! I played faithfully for the first couple of years, but then my life was turned upside down so I haven't played in a long time! The challenge this week is to use the colors pink and grey. Pink I LOVE...but grey is always difficult for me. Here's to everyone at LIM ... wishing you all much happiness and many more years of CAS fun!
Here's a couple of cards I made just for this challenge:
This first card is my favorite. I used the Simon Says stitched rectangle for the background. I made a stencil with my Cameo for the design on the background, and then cut a circle mask to place on the card before adding the inking on the stencil. The flower is the Gerber daisy from Uniko Studios. I stamped the image in dark grey, cut it out and colored it with Copics. The tag was cut from the same card stock as the card base, and the sentiment was heat embossed with pink embossing powder. The sentiment is from HA.
I didn't like this card quite as much as I did the first card. For this card, I stamped a piece of the grey card stock (from the piece left over from the first card) with dark grey ink using an Impression Obsession background stamp. The sentiment is from PTI, and the butterfly is from Memory Box. I traced the outer edge of the butterfly die onto some vellum and then cut it out to place behind the butterfly that was cut from pink glittery paper. The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder. I added a butterfly "trail" with a white Uniball Signo pen. The pink layer is popped up with foam tape over the card base and the grey strip.
That's all for me today! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit! Hope you'll come back soon! Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...
