Less is More - Sketch

Oh my gosh I thought this was going to be easier week! The challenge over at Less is More is a wonderful sketch, which I usually love but I have really struggled with this.

Ended up just printing some images from a My Craft Studio cd and cutting them out with my nesties. Mounted them on to black card and then onto silver and added the sentiment and that's it.
Taken me all day to come up with something for this card, no idea why, I did start with balloons but couldn't make these work. Will hopefully use these on some other card, probably another Clean and Simple one hehe.
Hope everyone is having a fab weekend, spent Friday moving tons of soil and gardening, so I now have muscles aching that I never knew I had!

Off now to do some commenting, some really amazing cards already posted and I am really late with this today :)

Those are great images Suzilou, I wonder why you felt you struggled today... this looks great... I think I may have tried the panel a tad lower but it looks superb!
Thanks so much for joining us.

Mandi said...

Your card looks FAB Suzi
Really different
With the balloons one Id have done like you have but un-coloured. Then picked out one and matted it, coloured! Maybe even as a whole ballon
Oh gosh that was hard to describe!!

Thank you very much

I LIKE the balloons but perhaps you felt it made your circles a bit busy when multiplied by three. Your actual entry is fab though - love those images

Lynne said...

Your first card is great and I would have posted the second one too. Maybe 3 balloons instead of 3 circles.

Suzilou...I this the images are awesome...and I love the balloons, but maybe if you'd just used one balloon on each circle? Not matter...the coloring on the balloons is fabulous!

Your images are fabulous. Although you didn't put the balloons on a card - I think they look amazing just the way they are. I think you should put them on a card. Great work!!
