LIM 211 - Love
The theme for this week's one layer challenge on the Less Is More blog is Love. I had almost completed this card when I read that I had won a birthday prize for my previous entry which you can see here . The sponsor of the prize is WOW Embossing powders!
Anyway back to this card. I did not want a pink card so I went with this pair of Katzelkraft love birds (well I think they're love birds although they look like they've had a bit of a tiff at present). I used the waste from a previous die cut as a stencil to sponge a circle with broken china DI. Now I know that the circle doesn't look like broken china but I used a piece of cut & dry foam that had been used for some darker inks and the waste stencil I used had brusho on it so my ink sort of mutated into a mixture of all of these. I highlighted some areas of the birds with a water pen that had the remnants of another project on (I know I'm sounding very slovenly but I like these little surprises my desk provides). The sentiment is an ancient one from a mixed UM sheet. So that's it. I will try and visit as many of you as I can to check out your one layer entries.
