LIM Sketch

I had a chance to play today, seeing as it's been cold and wet so we couldn't do the planned garden chores.  I've created a card for the Less Is More challenge, which this week is a sketch panel in 3 sections - when I saw it I immediately thought of this stamp that I've had for years.  In fact it wasn't so easy as I needed the panel to fit the card from top to bottom, but with a little bit of judicious cutting and matting it just fits onto a C6 size.  The stamp is by Stamps Happen Inc, a Nan Goss design, and I used brown Momento ink to stamp onto SU! Sahara Sand card, and created my base card with it too.  I coloured the images with Copics: the yellow leaves are YR20, 21 & 24, the greens are YG61, 63 & 67, then the little squares and the pins are RV66 & 69. After I cut out the images I matted them onto a strip of green card, fixed brads where the pins were on the leaves and finished with Glossy Accents on the squares.  I scored a couple of lines down my base card so the panel could be 3d mounted with foam pads between them, then added a few pricked accents in the corners, and that's it!

Stampin' for the weekend have an anything goes theme this time around so I'll enter my card with them too.

  5. Fabulous card Annie, isn't is wonderful when we find a use for a very old stamp ? I love it when I come across one I haven't used for ages. This is a great interpretation of the sketch.

  6. I do like the colour combination & the way you embossed the lines plus pierced the corners. Lovely little touches which make all the difference.

  13. Sorry I haven't been around much - I'll be a better blogger now that I'm back from my trip and have recovered from my Bronchitis. I have taken a look at the posts I missed and they are all lovely. I particularly liked "Boo" - fab colouring, and this LIM is delightfully pretty and beautifully balanced. Hugs, Lesley
