Less is More recipe

The recipe at Less is More this week is Something shiny!
The something shiny in this one is Glossy Accents, added to this digi image from Chris Dark, the Sketching Stamper. It was coloured with alcohol pens and accompanied with a computer generated sentiment!
Here are a couple of Elizabeth craft bauble dies cut from gold card and made into a simple shaker design. I use tiny iridescent sequins as the shakers. Even the ribbons are shiny! The sentiment is from Wplus9.
More gold card here with a background of alcohol ink marbled card and a Memory Box butterfly and sentiment.
More Glossy Accents here over a simple image. accompanied by a computer generated sentiment. I don't remember where the image came from, I was having a tidy up the other day and came across all sorts of partially started bit and pieces, so just finished off this image and made a card from it!

We just heard that my daughter's cat has been run over and killed. Everyone is really sad and my grandchildren are distraught. Tilly had such a special place in everyone's hearts in her short life. She will be sorely missed!


  1. FAB makes, love that shaker card and the humour of the wine card!
