Less is errrr More :-)

Hi all :-) Heather ( Rica) and I are crafting together, making cards for the LIM challenge 

When I went to see what this weeks challenge was I was thrilled to see that I am showcased for THIS card :-) THANKS !! Chrissie and Jen ,,, you have made my day ! :-)



Oops ,,,, I got a bit distracted and lost the plot with the fist one which isn't exactly CAS.

The theme is 'Sand' well after colouring 2 House Mice images,which went in the bin, I changed tack and image, using a little sailing boat instead. After all that I thought it really wasn't very CAS


I do like how this turned out tho :-) I used a 1cm strip of Be Creative tape, stuck it onto the card then peeled off the backing and sprinkled with a sand looking glitter :-) I will link all the products I used at the bottom.


My 2nd attempt is more CAS and I stayed with yellow/sandy colours with a splash of sea thrown in so I hope this one counts ?? :-)

I have just bought this Hero Arts Starburst Background stamp and think it makes a fab sunshine :-) I used HA shadow inks, spritzed with water then stamped onto watercolor paper, I then blended a little bit with Wild Honey Distress Ink before spraying with shine. It looks really shimmery IRL.


Thanks for looking :-)  I hope you're all having a fab weekend and enjoying some sunshine :-)
