LIM with Baubles!
When I saw that the Less Is More theme for this week was to use a rubber stamp and possibly some water colouring, I had an idea or two! This card is actually my second effort, the first is not quite so LIM, but I'll show it any way - tomorrow (if I remember).
I've stamped the Serendipity Baubles onto smooth water colour paper then punched out with a scallop square before colouring with my Derwent Metallic water colour pencils - limited colours but I thought they would work with this image. To make it more festive I've added the Stardust Stickles to the boughs and a little glaze and sparkle here and there on the baubles. I fixed the 3 squares to my base card with 3d foam then stamped the text with my new bright red Momento ink - the text is a Serendipity stamp too.
The challenge on the Christmas Card Challenge blog is to use something new - my new red ink pad. And on the ABC Christmas Challenge blog they are up to the letter Q = quick. My card was relatively quick to make as I didn't have to spend hours pondering on papers and layouts, although it did take a while for the Stickles to dry!
I'll be back soon with my other card .. .. ..
