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.


  1. Love your card and congrats on your win !!

  2. Congratulations on your well deserved win and I'm loving this gorgeous card with the little cute birds. I'm wondering whether you may have mounted the panel on an additional blue panel however which would mean it isn't a one layer card.
    thanks for sharing though

    1. No it is a one layer card. The blue you see is a piece of scrap card I use when scanning white cards to provide a contrasting background for the scanner. If you look at some of my other cards you will see this blue background. I should really have cropped it out completely but then the card merges into the white border I have around my pics.

  3. I love the birds on this card! Thanks for stopping by my blog, and congratulations on winning! Wow on the WOW embossing powders!

  4. A beautiful card - Love that stamp! I think they are goldcrests - the smallest birds in the UK. They are feisty little things and would only let a loved one sit that close, so they work perfectly for the theme. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog

  5. This looks fab, I think that the mix of colours is a really great 'happen-stance', a really interesting mix of colour.
    I think the dear little birds are Gold Crests... Britain's smallest bird!
    Thanks so much

  6. Very pretty card and your background colour has a name - serendipity!
    Thanks for joining our love challenge

  7. Love how you used all the bits you had lying around to constuct this card. I can never throw anything away just in case I can use it, hence my craft room is often rather messy! :)

  8. Very beautiful card, love the masked circle and the birds.

    Love and hugs

  9. Fabulous card and adorable image. Congratulations on your win too :) x


I read and value all your comments.
