It's time for a sketch again at Less is More and this time it's one that I have used before but find very satisfying!
With two shapes like this, either panels or apertures, it's always more pleasing to have them the same width even though the depths are different. Strangely, manufacturers don't seem to produce squares and rectangles with matching dimensions, so I use one shape and adapt it either shortening or lengthening the die-cut. You can see a video of how I do this here. This one is in fact for extending dies, but conversely you can shorten dies too in a similar manner.
This one has apertures, cut with a Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle, the bottom aperture being much shortened.
The stamp is from Artemio with an olive image from the Internet. The sentiment is computer generated and the flourish from MFT.
For this I used a stitched square die from SSS and reduced it a little for the image panel and a lot more for the sentiment panel.
I was a little unsure how the stamp for adding the colour to this image should be used. It didn't seem to fit any way round, so I hope that this looks OK. The stamp set is from Wplus9. I used Dried Marigold and Ripe Persimmon Distress inks on it, which I spritzed lightly with water after stamping, just to soften the edges.
