Less Is More ,,, Photo Inspiration ,,,

Hi All :-) I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend :-) We have gorgeous weather here !! I should be out there sunbathing ,,, :-)

the theme this week on the Less Is More challenge is a lovely photo inspiration ! thanks Mandi and Chrissie :-)




I used a lovely Hero Arts flower stamp from a Bee Happy clear set. I stamped the flower twice onto Neenah card using Memento ink and coloured with Copics, then cut them out. I made the stripe down the middle of the card using Judikins Eclipse tape, this is the first time I have used this and it is fab ,, much easier than using post it notes ,, I inked the strip with Victorian Velevet DT and used a Penny Black letters stamp for the script over the top. I then sprayed with Pearl glimmer mist ,, very shimmery IRL. I made the pink background square using the distress ink and then brushed perfect pearls over the top. I used a hero Arts sentiment stamp, some Star Dust Stickles and a little bit of hemptique twine to finish :-)



Thanks for looking :-) I really appreciate your comments and suggestions so please leave me one :-)
