I ♥ Promarkers - Time

Have been trying to blog this all weekend, what with one thing and another just haven't had chance.

Anyway this weeks challenge at I ♥ Promarkers is Time. I have been making tags this week so thought I would make a time themed one for the challenge.
The image is a Kenny K and coloured with promarkers and I used clock stamps from Cart Us to make the back ground.

I can not believe the weekend is nearly over, hope everyone has had a good one and thanks for popping by :)

Less is More - Don't Scrap It

Another weekend has finaly arrived and what a beautiful day it is here in Brum :)

This weeks Less is More challenge is to use your scraps. Was actually using this mesh to make another card and decided it wasn't big enough so was having a rumage for some more and thought hold on I can use that srappy bit for the LIM challenge.
I had also got this heart buried in the scrap box, which I had covered in glitter and 3d gloss for another project but it never got used. Thought it went nice with the mesh. Stamped the Clarity sentiment straight on the card using Rich Coco ink (been using this stamp alot hehe) and that's about it for this card. Did have some little red gems that I was trying to fit somewhere on the card but couldn't quiet make them work. Think it's just a little bit too plain but couldn't think what else to do with it so stepped away and took a photo of it quick - lol

Do visit the Less is More challenge blog, there are some truely amazing talanted crafters that enter cards and are a joy to look at even if I don't get chance to comment on every card, there are soooo many hehe, I do look at them all :)

Thank you for looking and enjoy the rest of the weekend, hope its sunny where you are :)

Another weekend has nearly come and gone..........why do they go so quick? Had a lovely morning retail shopping with my sister and then spent a little bit more in Hobbycraft!

I have so many dies and punches now I wasn't sure what to make, but I had been playing last night with some of my Tonic flower punches on some sraps of paper and had been making these daisies so made a few more and used a Marianne swirl die and a Clarity stamp.

Less is More - Stripes

Weekend is here again woohoo, looking forward to going out tonight with the OH for a nice meal.

This weeks Less is More challenge is a one layer card with stripes!! Well did I strugle with this one, really couldn't think what to do. Ended up masking off some stripes and sponging in with Lettuce. Had these beautiful Clarity stamps delivered this morning after my mass spending spree on create & craft last week. Used rich coco to stamp the image and sentiment and used my prismas to add a bit of extra colour and added some white ink to just lift the petals.
There is a fantastic blog candy over at LOTV, they are giving a way all 14 stamps of their new release to one lucky winner WOW!

Just like to say hi to my fab new followers and thank you for stopping by :)

Less is More - Aqua

HAPPY BIRTHDAY 'Less is More' xx

What a fab year it is has been, I have been challenged to my limits each week, still not sure I have mastered the clean and simple look but I do love having a go.

This week it's back to a colour challenge 'AQUA' and my first thought was OMG I dont have anything in that colour, not even an ink pad until I went rummaging and found one hehe.
Am I sure about this card? well no, but didnt want to add anything else to take away from the C&S look. The dress is coloured with Promarkers and is from Kanban Jasper stamp set I had for Christmas and it's the first time I have used it, the word stamps are from Clarity again this is there first time out as well.

Hope everyone is having a fab weekend, has been snowing in Birmingham for the last few hours and my garden is starting to look very pretty. Stay safe and warm :)
