Less is More - Sketch

I can't believe I am actually waiting for Saturdays so I can see what the Less is More girls have in store for us. This week it's a sketch so I have done a DL card which thinking about it is the first one I've done in a very long time.  I printed the pattern on the bottom and the sentiment then using the same card cut a strip which I put through the Cuttlebug, the flower is cut from a set  of dies and I popped a brown pearl in the centre to finish it off.

Bah! Humbug! - Metallic

Over at Bah! Humbug! hall they have asked us to use something metallic. Well the first of my cards is done in Craft Artist and all the elements are metallic looking and I've layered the topper onto silver so hopefully that fits.

For the second card I've stamped some baubles onto silver mirri with Stazon, cut them out and hung them from the tree branch. They were very difficult to take a picture of as the silver reflects everything or just looks black so I have done the best I can. I have embossed the card using a couple of folders and then did the lines to fill the gap. The sentiment is from the same set of stamps as the baubles, they came in a Do-Crafts goody bag. The ribbon has been coloured with Promarkers and I added a little colour to the baubles too, being very careful so the Stazon didn't run.

I was off line last week as my pc stopped working so didn't get a chance to enter the challenge so hopefully this makes up for it and keeps my tally of cards going in the right direction.

Less is more - Masculine

Over on the Less is More challenge this week it's masculine, my first thought was oh no! but then I remembered this lovely husky stamp from Clarity and I was away. The frame was put onto the card in Craft Artist as was the sentiment and now I've closed the programme down I can't remember which font I used.  I love this image and although I have used this for the challenge I know lots of ladies who would just love a card like this. 

Quick update just in case anyone likes the font it's Morning Limerick BTN.

CD Sunday - Wild Thing

Hello everyone, I almost didn't get to post this card as I had a sick pc and have been off line all week, you all know the trauma this brings.  Over on CD Sunday this week the challenge is Wild Thing, not unsurprisingly we have all gone with the animal theme but there are other things that can be done with this theme so I'm hoping that we'll see some really good entries this week.
My card is for my brothers birthday, he loves otters and has always fancied a tattoo on his leg, he is a bit of an artist and has even drawn the design he wanted but has never got around to having it done so I decided the next best thing is have one on a card.  The image and the bubbly backing paper is from the first of the Jayne Netley Mayhew cd's, I have used a fabulous photo paper for the main image and it looks really crisp. The seaweed and coral I have cut out on my Cricut in a matching paper from the Life's a Beach cartidge. I do hope he likes it.
