Less is More weeks #307 and #308 - Children
Hi LIMettes, and welcome to another challenge with Less is More, the clean and simple card making blog! This challenge runs over two weeks as we know you'll have lots on over the Christmas season. This time, we're asking you to make cards with the theme of children.
My first card was so much fun to make! What better way to release my inner child than with some finger stamping? I inked up my thumb with Adirondack dye inks in Purple Twilight, Eggplant and Sail Boat Blue and stamped onto a heavyweight card stock base. Next I used a black pen to turn them into birds by adding beaks, eyes, tail feathers and legs, and coloured the beaks and tails with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I added a grounding shadow at the same time. Finally, I stamped, coloured and die cut party hats for them from the My Favorite Things Beary Special Birthday stamp set and matching Dienamics. Being naughty birds, they all swapped hats with each other... isn't that just like kids at a party?!
My next card features the adorable Best Friends stamp set from Clearly Besotted. I wanted to create a BFF (Best Friends Forever) card that a child could give to their friend. I stamped, coloured with Promarkers and die cut the cat and dog, popped them on to a pink circle die cut with My Favorite Things Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Dienamics, added it to a card base and stamped a matching sentiment from the Best Friends set.
I'm really looking forward to finding out how you interpret the "children" theme! Remember to get your entries in by Friday 30th December 10 pm GMT. If you pop over to the Less is More blog, you can see some DT inspiration cards to get you started, and there are links to the their personal blogs where there may be some extra cards as a bonus.
I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and best wishes for a happy, fulfilling and crafty 2017!
Thanks for stopping by :)
