Summer Silhouette's Beanstalk


Saturday night and the feeling's right!  Just watched Britain's Got Talent, now watching The Voice (taped from earlier) and blogging to all you lovely folks!  

We took the children in to see Jack The Giant Slayer this afternoon.  Loved it.  So had to use this film as my inspiration for the Less is More challenge this week which is a one layer.  I've made a beanstalk using the leaves from Summer Silhouette.  I used two markers to colour them for a bit of definition - Lucky Limeade and Always Artichoke.  I also outlined the vine with Sahara Sand.  I masked off the side then sponged with a variety of colours - Lucky Limeade, Certainly Celery, Summer Starfruit, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise.  I added some little flower heads as I think these look a bit magical in Summer Starfruit.  The card seemed to suit a get well and I chose Sassy Salutations in Sahara Sand.

So if you are poorly just now, Feel Better! 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend folks.  x

Really pretty card - definitely great for 'get well'. I think it has a lovely optimistic feel to it (does that make sense?)

Love your film title Aileen, and what a brilliant take on the theme - the stamp set is perfect for it!
Talking of Britain's Got Talent - I loved it - there were some really talented people, and so young too. I used up half a box of tissues!

Hugs, Sylvia xx
