It's recipe or sketch time at Less is More - Chrissie and Mandy have given us a sketch to play with this time around. It's a DL card, tall and slim (for our friends in North America - it's roughly equivalent to taking two thirds of a letter size sheet and folding in half; the sort of size you'd get for a business letter or bank statement!).
I used the same Technique Tuesday set I used on Friday as it was still out on my desk. The original plan was just to use the flower in the place where there's a circle on the sketch but it looked just a tad out of scale so I ended up creating a little group and breaking over the boundaries of the card. No colouring though and this flower is a really easy shape to cut out so it was still a fast card to put together.
The embossed area at the bottom has just a hint of colour - I brayered Bundled Sage ink onto my folder before running it through the Big Shot.
Petite Posies (Technique Tuesday)
Adirondack by Ranger (Espresso)
Tim Holtz Distress ink by Ranger (Bundled Sage)
Embossin folder by Provocraft (Victoria)
Copic marker (to colour the brown strip and the pearls)
I always find this shape card looks much better in real life than it does in photos - maybe it's the proof that not everything long and lean is photogenic?!
Thanks for stopping by!
