2nd attempt at the Less Is More Challenge :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all having a fab weekend ,, especially you lot in the UK who are enjoying a nice long one :-)

After getting my legs slapped by Mandi I thought I should have another go at the Less Is More Challenge …. in my defence ,,, I only added a border and extra layer on my first one cos my stamp fell off the block and ruined it ,, so I HAD to cover it :-) ,,, that’s my excuse and am stickin to it ,, lol :-)





This is a small 10x10cm note card. The stamps are from Hero Arts and if I made this again I would use a smaller ‘Hi’ ,,, too late now !! I stamped the image then masked before spraying the sky with a blue copic using my airbrush. That was a waste of time because I then layered another kite over the top,,,,using a glue dot near the string and dimensional pop dots on the upper edge of the kite :-)

Thanks for all your comments ,, we have quite a nice community of Limettes eh !! Smile Thanks to Mandi and Chrissie for hosting such a fun challenge and for encouraging us all to keep in touch as much as poss :-)



oops I forgot to add this to the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge ,,, Clean and Simple :-)

This is a sweetie Lols... I hadn't noticed the blue until I zoomed in..it's rather bright in my craft room this afternoon. I'm still struggling to catch up with all my commenting after my holiday, last week was a write off and after starting a little late this week I'm slowly getting there!
Thanks so much yet again.
