Less Is More ,,,,,,,

Hi all :-) did you all have a fab weekend ?? I managed to make a couple more cards and decorate the tree ,,, tomorrow it is making mince pies ,,, busy busy ,,,,,




I made this card for the Less Is More Challenge whose theme is One Layer and Snowflakes, I started by tearing a piece of paper and using it to mask the top and bottom of the card. I then punched a few snowflakes and used these as a mask ,, then sprayed with a blue copic marker using my airbrush. I then stamped a few snowflakes randomly,,,, now this is where it went horribly wrong ,,,, I smudged one !!! HORROR .... sooo as it is a one layer I wasn't allowed to plonk a sentiment over the top of it ,,,, so after a little wondering what shall I do next ,,, I just punched out the offending black blob, added a Hero Arts sentiment and a few gems to finish.

quick n easy and if I need any last minute ones I might just make a few more like this ,,,,,

Thanks for looking ,,,, off to make a cuppa now :-)

Love the design! I always do straight lines but you've encouraged me to try tearing paper for a different look. Thanks for the inspiration!
