Less is More

Yesterday once all my orders were complete I decided to have a wee play on the "Less is More" blog.  I am feeling really bad as I haven't played for such a long time but with the run up to Christmas and all that comes with it I was a tad busy.  The sketch which closed tomorrow is as follows;

And my take is;

I love the idea behind the Less is more site taking cards right back to the bare bones....but it sometimes can be a little scary!  For my card I have masked the area I wanted to ink, adding Antique distress ink then Tea die.  I have then used a PI stamp by Marion Emberson Just because for the swirls.  The butterfly is by Spellbinders and has been cut twice embossed and then glittered.  The sentiment stamps is also by Marion, the glitter is by Martha Stewart and the bling from Zva Creative.

I have been very quiet on here just lately as I am busy doing samples for a Wedding and my next demo at Papercraft's Boutique in Elgin.  I also have my parents up for a few days so I fully intend to chill with them and have some fun days out and about. 
So that is all from me today.....back soon.
