I have been feeling blah .. .. my mojo has up and left so rather than struggle with pretty embellies etc, I decided to have a go at the Less is More challenge for a one layer card with script. I remembered I had several old Elusive Images floral stamps that incorporate script as part of the design, so no need for masking, and decided on the Tulip script for this card. I stamped it with brown Momento ink on to a kraft base then got to colouring with my Copics and pencils. I was sat watching the tv and to be honest, just made things up as I went along - just remember to do the Copic colouring first then finish off with the wax/oil based pencils on the top.
I can tell you that the background shades are B0000/000/00/02 and my tulip flowers were Y11/15/17/19/28 plus cream, dark yellow and orange pencils.
Here's the card, and as there is already a stripe in the base I went with it and added white pencil in the same direction to soften things and then when I had finished messing with the colouring I drew a wiggly line around the image to finish things off. I stamped the text with the brown Momento then inked the edges of the card with brown chalk ink to give it all a shabby look - well hopefully that's what you think it looks like. I still ache to mat it onto another colour, especially as it has bent with all the colouring, perhaps a cream or brown - or both, but I will do that on the quiet so I can still enter the LIM challenge with what you see! Sshhh - I re-vamped it here .. ..
I'm not sure when I will be back with a card again .. .. I've nothing finished and a busy time ahead with the builders. I'm keeping an eye out for the mini digger and dumper truck that should be arriving some time today. Whatever you are doing this weekend, enjoy!
