LIM: 104 - Sketch

Its been a long time since I played along with the Less is More challenges.  We all had coughs and colds over the Christmas holidays, and then it was back to work with vengeance (a big project to complete and annual reviews - both of which are completed, yay).  This weekend, my PC has been rebuilt as windows 8, so while it installed, I've been playing.

Less is More: week 104  Sketch - uses a layout which is the kind of thing I like. For Christmas my other half helped stock up my craft supplies with Core D'ination card, and some dies - so I've been playing with layers, texture, cogs.  So for a change I thought I'd go really simple with a one layer card.

The strip of colour is using torn paper to mask an edge, which has been sponged in Broken China DI, SU Baja breeze and pool party.  The music is a Penny Black background stamp, stamped on SU Baja breeze and Island Indigo.  I misted some water over the top of both the background and again once I'd stamped the music.  The sentiment was from Hobby Craft in the 99p range of stamps, and is just perfect for a note card/thank you. I just love these colours!

My mum always likes my cards, especially the ones which she can use for any purpose.  In feb half term, I'm off to Scotland to see my parents, so this will be one of a stack for Mum.


  1. Delightful card - sure your mum will be pleased with this one


  2. Very nice, like the torn edge mask you used. The sentiment stamp is really useful, I might need a trip down to Hobbycraft soon! Julia.
