Sketch Time at "Less is More"


We have a really simple sketch this time at Less is More and here are a few cards using it!
I love this Canada goose from the SU Wetlands set. I've had it for a while but this is the first time it has felt any ink on it and I really am pleased with how it stamps. 
The edges of the edging layer of card has been coloured with the same Copic which I used to colour the grass. 
Here is how I managed to cut out a die-cut circle without cutting off the goose's head!
The protruding part is cut out with either scissors or a craft knife before the die is placed around the image, so  that it can be lifted above the die and therefore will not get cut!
This one is a simple stamp from Cart-Us.com. I think it's really sweet!
Computer generated sentiment again.
More Stampin' Up stamps here, for a really CAS Wedding card.
It's embossed in silver which sadly doesn't show up to well on this pic. Photography is not one of my strong suits!
I hope that lots of you will join in with this challenge again this week and thanks so much for all the lovely comments I received last time!

  1. So gorgeous, Chrissie, all of them! Love how you have the Canada goose popping his head up to gaze around, the birds silhouette is so sweet and the wedding dress ... wow! I clicked on the photo and got to see it in all it's silvery glory! Anita :)

  2. And what a fab selection from you this week (as always) - love the idea deployed with the Canada Goose (after an "incident" at a local wildfowl and wetlands trust we've taken to calling them HAM ROLL BIRDS!!!)

  5. Beautiful cards. Thanks for the guide to how to get the image outside of the circle - I've made a note now all I need is an image to use it with! Brilliant.
