Another week, another challenge at Less is More and this time it's to use an
somewhere on a card.
In fact I love using simple shapes for mounting images. I have a whole heap of differently shaped Spellbinder labels, (more than I should have really) but really prefer to use simple circles, ovals, squares or rectangles. It probably goes with my love of Less is More values.
Isn't this a cute little boat from The Rubber Stamp Gallery, I simply coloured it with Promarkers and drew a few random seagulls and added the waves, which were made from the scraps from my SU scalloped punch.
The letters are from the Sizzix Typeset die.
From the same company here is a fab sea bird, I'm not sure if it's a curlew or what, but I love it. If I had a cottage by the sea I would love one of these chaps sitting on the window ledge looking out at the waves.
More details are on the LIM blog.
This one does and doesn't have much white space if you see what I mean... because it is layered I guess, but I love the effect of the recessed oval. It's fun anyway. The image is from Hero Arts, I have the jacket, but I'm afraid I'm missing the boots from the set, if I find one I must get it... if any one sees one for sale somewhere, do let me know. The sentiment is from Studio G.
If I don't manage to comment on your cards from the Less is More blog, it will be due to Internet connection problems, so I'll apologise in advance if I don't get to leave you a comment for a few weeks.
I hope you'll understand.
Have a great week.
