Exciting News ...

I have some exciting news to share ... I've joined the design team at "Less is More"!! I still cannot believe it ... in these uncertain times it was a lovely uplifting surprise ... I just need to ensure that I do not let the team down.  So here we go with my project for the new challenge starting today:

I love the effect that you can get by incorporating scribbles, drips and splats but I am a bit of a control freak and like to know what the ink or paint is going to do!!  Fortunately I have a number of stamps and dies that create this effect but under my control!!

My project:

The splat has been die cut from a left over piece of card I printed using my gel plate, acrylic paints and stencils.

I used:
Sizzix Tim Holtz Scribbles and Splat die set
UNIKO Simply Said Blocks
Stampin Up Off the Grid
Stampin Up Gorgeous Grunge
Memento Dandelion Ink
Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade
Versafine Onyx Black.

I hope that I have inspired you to join in with the challenge and look forward to visiting your blogs to check out your designs.

Stay home and stay safe.


  1. Congrats on joining the LIM DT. I think your card is fab. I love the look of splats and drips, but I too like to be a bit more in control xx

  2. Welcome to the team Elaine! We are so excited to have you join us and know that YOU will inspire US all with your fantastic talent! What a beautiful card you have made for your first DT make. The soft oranges in the background work so well with that fabulous inky splat and that is a brilliant mix of stamps. I'm so looking forward to working with you xx

  3. Do you ever look at someone else's card and think " I wish I'd thought of that" That is just what I thought when I saw this. It's fabulous, gorgeous colours and really CAS. I know how you feel about joining the team. So exciting but stressful too. I'm sure we'll all be fine after this first one.
