The theme at "Less is More" this week is Technology.
I'm not quite sure where the idea for this challenge came from but I was at a bit of a loss as to what to do for it.
After a little head scratching I decided to try to make a mobile phone image from some bits of card.
I started by cutting a couple of rectangles from black and dull silver card, rounding the corners with graduated sized Corner Chompers...3/8" for the silver and 1/4" for the black. Next I cut a rectangle with a Spellbinder rectangle die, shortening it slightly to fit in the space. For the button I used a flower centre die and a hole punch, fitting the smaller black circle onto the silver piece. The microphone at the top was made with the letter i from a Cuttlebug's Babyface alphabet. The message is also from little alpha die-cuts and the sentiment is computer generated!
I had to choose not to add my watermark to this picture as it completely obliterated the sentiment!
For many years I have made a card for the son of a friend of mine whose passion is bicycles. This is the latest edition!
Cuttlebug letter dies, Hobby Art 'Happy Birthday' and computer generated sentiment. The image is an internet download.
This coming week I shall be in Bath, looking after my grandson during his final week of part-time schooling ... his life will never be quite the same again!
