LIM 55

Firstly thank you to everyone who commented on my stripes card last week. I was delighted to read your kind comments. I actually managed to visit everyone but I'm not sure I'll be able to do that this week. Here's a quick card for this week's Less Is More challenge which is to use diecuts and punches. There were already quite a lot of flowers & butterfly entries & I decided to take a different tack so I used my latest TH die - townscape. This was coloured with antique linen & tea dye DIs. I overstamped with a Paper Artsy text stamp and Memento London fog. The cloudy moon/sun is by Clarity Stamps stamped with London fog again.

  4. This is lovely. I hadn't realised that was a die, I saw it used on the edge of a piece of map and wondered how they had done it!
