Oh dear, I think I have an addiction!

Do you know, I think I might need some specialist help!  I seem to be becoming addicted to Less is More - I'm trying again, again!

After the very long winded post (only earlier today, I will be in the Divorce courts for sure for all the neglect of husband and child for computer) I went back to the drawing board. 

I have two new cards and one re-arranged, both of which are down to advice from Chrissie (lady LIM - love that title by the way) and also Malyn (advice and inspiration) at ThinkInkCreative.

I remembered that before Elzybells closed I brought some flower stamps and bearing in mind Chrissies advice (work with stamps you like) I got out a stamp and worked with it. 
From Malyn I got inspiration to not use black ink and advice to swap the robot image around. 

So without further ado - my new cards follow sorry for the wonky sentiment, I'm doing these cards whilst trying to keep a 3yr old daughter entertained!

I also swapped the robot around on my other cards, hmm what do you think?  I didn't remake the cards, just did a dodgy move with the image!

Do you know I actually did not join in with the first couple of LIM challenges when I first started my blog, as I was too scared.  How times change.

Going now, daughter is sooo bored (a direct quote)!

Hi Sarah,
These are just gorgeous! Love the images you've used, love the soft colours and the layout looks fab. I too was too scared to join in over at LIM but finally plucked up the courage to join in last week with acetate and loved it lol. So i'm hoping to join in this weeks too.
Hugs Jacqui xxxx

YOur cards are really lovely....the robot is super


Chrissie said...

I like the dress one on this post Sarah, you have stamped it at a slight angle which seems to give the image more movement and the sentiment is well positioned.
Well done you for keeping 'at it'... you'll be truly addicted before too long!

Just left a comment on your first post, but these are improved. The dress one's perfect and I prefer the first robot one. xx

Super Sarah!!
Love the dress one and that robot is awesome!!
I'm a bit scared of a lot of white space, joined in the first challenge but you have inspired me to give it another go

ThinkInk Creative said...

Hi Sarah,

Firstly thanks for the mention but more impressive, you actually followed the advice. Your cards look super and your angle for the dress is much better than mine - this is perfect. And that robot does look better looking in than out of the card focus.

Well done. Thanks for visiting me, too.

If I ever do just one challenge in a week, LIM would be it. It's a great combination of challenge, tutorials and community.

Mandi said...

I like them Sarah!
For me the robot is definitely better facing that way!
Glad you are addicted to our challenges and feel comfortable enough to joinl. Hopefully you will grow and become completely at ease with CAS

Thanks so much

I think the card with the dress is perfect - love the shape of the card and the sentiment and the softer colour works better for this image. It's not hard to become a LiM addict but don't worry - you're in good hands!

Aileen said...

I like your dress card too. Fantastic image. x

Anna-Karin said...

Your cards are really lovely....Love the dress!

Wow...nice cards. I love Less Is More too. Not a bad addiction to have if you're going to have one. Tehe!

Chris said...

They are all beautiful. Thank you for your lovely comment on mine... Chris x

Michelle Short said...

They are all great but my favourite is the dress one, your position of the dress and your sentiment are perfect, I love the colour of the dress too, so pretty xx
