Oh dear. Dilemmas, dilemmas, dilemmas. Less is More this week is challenging us to pick 3 challenges from all the previous ones. So which ones to choose? Well I took a wrong turn with my card and have ended up with different ones to the originals I had chosen.
My card is
1. Week 2 - Flower
2. Week 81 - Tearing
3. Week 43 - Bit of Bling
It was going to be Week 6 off the edge but not sure that counts with a layer on a base card and week 83 Brown and Pink until I stuck a purple flower on it!! Lol.
I was challenging myself to do a bit of vintage which is not a genre I'm that comfortable with. I like it when I see others just struggle to get there myself.
So onto how I made it -
The card base is Crumb Cake with a panel of Whisper White sponged with Soft Suede and one corner torn. I rollered my Music Notes Wheel (right way up I hope Chrissie!) in Soft Suede. Then on a separate piece I rollered the Very Vintage wheel in Pink Pirouette. Tore and sponged the edges. Stamped Happy Birthday from Happiest Birthday Wishes using one of the new In Colours Markers - Primrose Petals.
The large flower was one I demonstrated at a recent workshop, so easy to do. Five Perfect Plum scallop circles spritzed with water and scrumpled up. Great for the stress levels!! Then attached all together with a gorgeous Rhinestone Brad. You then re shape the flower by squoshing it in to the middle and tweaking till your happy. Once it dries it goes hard and keeps it shape. Did you like all the technical terms Hee Hee.
I attached it to my card with a couple of glue dots. Corner rounded the top corner to echo the torn corner.
My daughter had a fun afternoon today standing in at the last minute with a theatre group. The show is in two weeks! However she loved it and they all looked after her really well. It helped her big cousin was there as a helper. So this gave me time alone with my big son which we spent down at Aberdeen beach. A game of crazy golf, a ride on the rooftop roller coaster and a Mr Whippy 99 ice cream what more could a boy and his Mum wish for!
Hope you've had a super day and it was sunny with you too. I look forward to returning your visit. x
