.... I love it when I can combine two of my favourite challenges. Both challenges are for cards with clean and simple designs. The One Layer Wednesday - OLW57 challenge this week is being hosted by Jennifer at Styles Ink where the brief is Summer Holidays. The challenge at Less is More also for a one layer card, but it needs to include a frame.
It's taken me a little while to come up with something for OLW57 - I have several lovely stamps featuring lighthouses - but that's been done. I thought about flip-flops. Then I decided to use a sweet little stamp that I got free with Craft Stamper - and just makes me think of beaches! And hence long hot summer holidays lying by the sea, listening to the waves and enjoying the sunshine!! If only! And best of all it also fits the LIM challenge as the stamp comes with it own word frame!! It's a sweet card, pearlised ivory in colour and only measures 3" × 3". I used two shades of brown ink; covering the whole of the image with the lighter colour and adding the darker colour to the words and edges of the shell.
Stamp: Sea Shells - Free with Craft Stamper Magazine
Inks: Memento - Potters Clay, Rich Cocoa
That's my first card today - I hope to get back later with at least one more card. This morning I'm off to my local Craft group - it's been ages since I've managed to attend, so I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone's been up to. And, of course, to share some of my cards with them. I do hope that today's weather is a bit more summery. See you later.
