I wish weekends were longer! I seem to run out of time to do all the things I would like to do ... it seems with a blink of an eye I fly from Friday evening to Sunday without really drawing breath!! I always start the weekend with long list of things I would like to do interspersed with stuff that I have to do! I only wish that I could do more of the things I choose to do rather than the things that need doing! Less of the waffle and onto the positives!
To start the day I was up and creating very early! I woke with an idea of a card for this week's "Less is More" challenge. This week we're asked to CASE one of the Design Team cards - I find CASEing designs a difficult task as I'm always concerned that all I will do is the copy bit and not add my twist. I had a couple ideas for the challenge but only time to make one card today and this is it!
I was inspired by Chrissie's card:
The similarity is limited really but the image and colour inspired me to create a simple card. I wanted to include some words but didn't have a small enough stamp - so thought I would just go with the image alone and lots and lots of white space. I think it lacks quite alot so I will be finding time tomorrow to create another card more worthy of being linked to Chrissie's beautiful card.
STAMplorations Blossom Overture Stamp set
Distress Inks - Festive Berries and Crushed Olive
I ran out of time to have another try today as I spent the rest of the day at a workshop at The Stamp Attic trying some new techniques (new to me) creating a "piece of art" under the guidance of Lin Brown using stamps designed by Lin and other products from PaperArtsy. It was brilliant!! Great fun, very messy with a group of lovely ladies and an excellent teacher. I'll be getting the paints out again and having another go. This is what I created (not my usual CAS style), it's not quite finished but I'm reasonably happy with it.
