Less is More ... Favourite Technique

 Good Morning! It is hard to believe that we are already at the end of May and it is time for a new challenge at Less is More - it is time for our Lucky Dip challenge and this time we would like to see you use your favourite technique.

So get your thinking caps on - what is you go to technique? Die cutting, stamping, heat embossing, stencilling - the list is endless.  My favourite technique (at the moment!) is water colouring.  I have two cards to share both using the same stamp - to me they show the versatility of water colouring as they both use the same two distress inks but they look very different.  The variation is created by varying the amount of water used to blend the ink.

This one has a soft and gentle appearance whereas the second card is far more vibrant.

This time, more than ever, I am looking forward to finding out what your favourite technique is - I'm always looking for new ideas and inspiration from my fellow bloggers.  Remember to check out the Less is More blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created.

Keep well!


  1. Both absolutely gorgeous! The color of the embossing makes such a dramatic difference as does the amount of water you used. I have not watercolored with DI's in a long time. You have surely inspired me.

  2. WOW ! They both are gorgeous, Elaine. This stamp is just gorgeous and you've showcased it so beautifully with your watercoloring and your striking designs. LOVE them. x

  3. Both cards are lovely Elaine and in my favourite colour too. Love how you've shown the difference a little less water makes.

  4. Elaine these cards are both beautiful - I just love the different effects and sunny yellow. So cheery!

  5. You make the watercoloring look so easy! I need to get practicing. BTW, do you mind sharing the name of the stamp you used? It is gorgeous!!
