It's SKETCH TIME again
at "Less is More" and here is another one drawn by Jen.
The main feature on the band can be any shape you choose, but we would like the layout to remain as here.
Jen won't be joining us again this week but should hopefully be back next time.
In her absence, I'm delighted that Anne (Stargroves) known by many of you as a faithful LIMette and contributor to our challenges, volunteered to jump into the breach with a couple of sample cards. We spent her birthday together on Wednesday...she, trying to persuade me to follow her lead and buy an eBosser. I'm sorely tempted, but I may need a new laptop first!
Do swing by her blog and leave a kindly message, details of her cards can be found there!
This one is really simple but uses a useful trick to allow part of an image to protrude outside a die cut.
To do this, carefully cut around the protruding part (in this case the head and neck of the goose) with either scissors or a craft knife and extend the cut a little further than the edge of the die to allow it be put above the die when it goes through the machine and so will not get cut!
I stuck the die cut piece onto another circle, the edge of which I coloured with the same Copic marker used to colour the grass on the image. This ensured that the little bit which was cut into would not show on the finished card.
The sentiment was computer generated in Andalus and Passions Conflict fonts. I love this paring!
Anyone wanting to know how to create sentiments like this can check out the tutorials page at the top of the blog which has a link back to the week when it was explained.
This is true simplicity. I like to contrast textured card by using both sides on cards. Here the main body of the card is in a hammered card, but I used the reverse (flat) side for the image and the sentiment panel.
I also like to emboss pieces of card to edge panels like this one. It gives a lovely finished edge.
THe stamps used here were both from Stampin' Up embossed in silver.
I would like to thank all those of you who visited my blog this last week. I really appreciated your kind comments. There is a little extra card over there again this week so do please take a look.
Once more many thanks to Anne and we're waiting to see your cards!
