I nearly didn't do a card for this weeks Less is More - I really got stuck with the monochrome theme just couldn't think of what to do at all. Which is why this is such a late entry - I'm also rather busy at home at the moment there seems to be a sudden glut of cards needed and it's coming up to my daughters fourth birthday so lots going on.
I have finally come up with two cards. One is taking inspiration from Chrissie's card and the other from something I saw in an issue of Craft Stamper. I have started buying these magazines again after about a 6 year break from them. They were, I felt, too 'arty' for me at the time, but I'm feeling the need to be able to do something other than patterned papers and stamp an image, colour it in - so thought I'd try again.
Here are my cards:
This is the one that was inspired by Chrissie's example. I masked off the bottom of a Craftwork Cards card blank and sponged on ink from a Memento London Fog pad. Then stamped the same script stamp over the top. The bird is from, I think, an Inkadinkado set - another case of chucking the packaging. The sentiment I picked up for a pound from the Lincoln Fair I went to recently and is an Anita's stamp. I used the London Fog pad on all the stamps.
I don't know that either of them are very good, it just didn't seem to work this week, but as I've said before I'll keeping trying and maybe one day I'll get the knack!
Sorry for minimal commenting two weeks in a row now, I will try harder next week - promise!
