I've unpacked from the Quilt Show, bought a new washing machine (sigh) which arrived at 7.15 this morning and am making an attempt at resuming normal service with my Less is More cards for this week. We're using ink and making one layer cards. I may try and do something new later in the week but for now I've two cards using a favourite technique of making backgrounds with my duster brushes and inks.
First card uses Distress and Adirondack inks with a mask for the sun and torn paper for the hills. Stamps are Stampin' Up. Second card is almost the same as some I made last Christmas, a great quick easy card that is light to post. Edges of card masked off before inking, then Tim Holtz trees added and given some Stickles baubles. I put a Stickles dot on the "i" of the sentiment, looks better irl than on the picture.
My cards are entered for:
Less is More - one layer inky
Cute Card Thursday - clean and simple
Cards for Men - anything goes - pheasant card
