We have a new challenge for you at Less Is More:
A fun but tricky one, isn't it!
Card 1: Hugs
My first DT card has a large sponged lotus flower (or something close to lotus!) which I sponged with memento desert sand ink and colored on top with Copics for a "no-line coloring"-look. I usually shy away from this technique but this image was so large that it was not very difficult to keep the lines and petal edges clean even though there isn't any defined outlines. My sentiment is a large hugs-die cut (from my friend Sandie, thanks hon!) which I absolutely love. I sponged it with some distress ink and also brushed the same ink on top of the flower. I think the larger size of the sentiment die worked pretty well with the large size of the flower. I added Wink of stella to the sentiment and couple of clear sequins to finish off the card. I also die cut the panel with a MFT border die for just a little bit of extra interest.
I'd like to enter my Hugs-card to
Stamping Sensations: anything with flowers (my 2nd entry)
Card 2: Thanks
My second card has a self-made white on white thanks-background which I created with die cut sentiments. I backed my white card white Stick-it adhesive before die cutting so creating the background didn't require much effort. It looks quite fun IRL, unfortunately the lighting conditions were a bit bad when I photographed this but I hope you get the idea anyway! The cute, stitched die cut flowers come from Lil' Inker and I've added wink of stella and clear sequins to them to get the card looking a bit more girly. The off-white card base is not so yellow as it looks in the photo... The lighting again. :(
Our challenge blog is filled with fantastic DT cards and lots of inspiration for this challenge. For me it was a challenge to not to get to play with my stamps but there is many alternatives like stencils, dies and even some store-bought fun toppers to play with... I look forward seeing what you'll create! Play along and you could win a fabulous prize from our July sponsor, Happy Little Stampers!
