Happy Saturday and oh my yet another week of the hols has flown by and having only got in with last week's Less is More challenge on Thursday this one seems to have come around awful quick! However it's a one layer challenge and you have to use 'ink'. I've done a spotlight technique which means that the ink comes in with my ink pads to stamp images, in my Stampin' Up! Stampin' Around Wheel cartridge which is bashful blue and also the marina mist which I brayered over the top once I'd wheeled, stamped and spotlit some areas by masking them with punched circles. Not only is it for Less is More, but also for the St Luke's Charity Card Challenge which asks for seaside/summer images and I fondly remember rock pooling as a child and collecting star fish and shells and the odd tiddler! Never had much luck with an octopus mind!
The second card is the same technique, but different colours and stamps. This one is especially for Chrissie and her love of music and she'll note that I've been less rushed and got it right this time! She'll know what I mean.
The colours here are old olive, always artichoke and so saffron. The stampin' around wheel is Music Notes and the sentiment is from a retired US set. I've also used Flight of the Butterfly and the Heart to Heart XL punch.
You'll be glad to know that we survived the teeny meany boys and remarkably they stayed talking and sleeping (yes they did fit in a bit of shut eye) in the tent all night even with the rain!!!! Of course the real pain kicks in later when the tiredness really catches up with my darling boy!!!
Have fun this weekend.
