This is my final entry for the Less Is More #200 Challenge - 'Celebrate'
This will be my third one and they must be getting sick of seeing my name by now.
I am dedicating this card to Chrissie who started the LIM blog and keeps it running so we can all enjoy it and join in the fun! I have always had encouraging comments from her and the DT.
This is a technique that I saw Jennifer McGuire demonstrate a while ago now and I remembered it, had the stamp set and decided to try and replicate the effect. To visit her blog click HERE
This is my card
First, I stamped the sentiment in different colour inks and then, cut them in half. The red one I cut a strip out of the center, then I cut four more strips of card the same width and layered them up.
Next, I put the two halves together on to a card front and lined up the red, layered strip on top so it stood out.
Finally, I stamped the rest of the greeting underneath the main sentiment, in Versafine Black Onyx pigment ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I mounted the panel on to a card with a strip of yellow card for accent and added a few sequins as it is supposed to be a celebration! Maybe it would look better without? The jury is out on that one!
Thank you for taking the time to visit and comment you lovely people, it is very much appreciated! Hazel x
