Less is More - Week 208 - sketch

This week at Less is More Chrissie has designed a fab sketch to inspire us.  On Thursday she came up to help me celebrate a milestone birthday and, of course, we got inky.  I had two sets of Aquatints Inks arrived and we played with them.  The background to my first card is one of the experimental sheets I painted.  I have topped it with a panel that has a Memory Box fern cut from it and then I trimmed down the diecut and added it to loosely interpret the sketch.  The sentiments are Stampin Up.  This card has lots of NBUS going on:  the inks, the die cut fern and the diecut panel for the sentiment.

My second card uses a favourite stampset, it is a more literal interpretation of the sketch, using washi tape and Avery Elle Storybook stamps and dies.  The balloon is cut from a scrap of patterned paper.


I hope your enjoy using the sketch as a starting point for your CAS creation!

  7. Hi Anne, your fern card is so elegant, I love the background and how you used the negative space. Love the cute little bunny, that's one of my favourite sets too. My foxes stamp is from a stamp and dies set by Hero Arts. :)
