Glad to report things are starting to get back to normal here, Emily is fully recovered from the viral infection and back to her normal self. So I got a chance to make a card yesterday evening as she slept soundly through the night for the first time in a week. She got 11 hours, bliss!
My card is for the current Less is More challenge, which I missed last week as I didn't get a chance to craft while Emily was ill. This week Mandi and Chrissie have set the challenge of a One Layer Card featuring something with legs! Well I will no doubt come back to this again and try something more arty - but my first thought was this:
The little girl does actually have legs in the stamp, but I thought it looked quite good with her at the bottom of the card, so I just stamped off the edge.
The stamp is a Kanban one which I coloured in with a mixture of Prisma and WHSmith artist pencils. The greeting is part of another sentiments stamp set.
This is not my original attempt at this card, that one I had coloured in only with Prisma pencils. I don't think you can see from the picture but I've added a touch of 3d gloss to the buttons on the phone and when I did this originally the gloss smeared. So I re-stamped and coloured again, using my WHSmith pencils and that card I ruined by smudging the sentiment. So as not to waste it I put a Craftwork Cards sentiment over the smudge - therefore making it ineligible for this weeks' LiM. So I set about again stamping and colouring again, this time I got the card above.
The difference in the look of the images, using the different pencils, is really interesting. I thought anyway, I might just be being a bit geeky here! I thought I'd pop up the other cards so you can see what I mean.
Just with Prismas:
Everything, apart from the skin tones, with WHSmith Artist pencils:
So glad to be able to participate in LiM again, really missed it last week and off now to say hello on Mandi and Chrissie's blogs and have a look see at everyone elses entries.
