My effort for the Less Is More Challenge ,,,,,

Hi all :-) Hope you’re all having a lovely BH weekend in the UK :-)

I have just made this card for the Less Is More challenge whose theme this week is a recipe sketch ,,, fab idea !! :-)

I put on my thinking cap and came up with this ,,,not overly happy with this attempt ,,,, hmmm, think I will have a hop around my fellow Limettes and see what you all came up with and maybe get a few tips, Mandi and Chrissie's cards are fab and make it look so easy !! :-)

I used some speckled cream card that I bought at the NEC ,,, it is lovely IRL and some choc chip SU card ( from Mandi)

I made a reverse mask ( I saw this on Rica's blog and it gave me the idea ) I inked the background with tea dye and vintage photo distress inks. The stamps are all from Hero Arts, the background text is a cling ,,, now does anyone else have a problem with them ?? I find they don’t cling very well and often fall off the perspex ,,, really annoying as it means you ruin the card ,,, as I did on my first attempt here ,,, Sad smile to make sure it stayed put I sprayed it with adhesive ! The flower is from a Hero Arts Clear set, stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento ink, coloured with Copics and layered. For the centre I added some flower soft sprinkled with bronze glitter. I distressed the edges and added platinum stickles for extra sparkle Smile

Thanks for looking and for leaving me a comment :-) I really appreciate them :-)

I am also entering this into the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge ,,,, CAS
