Sending Love and Hugs

Hi all, I hope you're all enjoying a fabulous weekend :-) 

We are having a day off from the hammering and jigging from all the building work going on here and it is so lovely and quiet,, there is no point in starting to clean up so I have shut myself in my craft room to join and made a couple of cards to join in with this weeks Less is More Challenge, 3 colours or 3 shades of the same colour



First up ,,, sending lots of love

I used 3 shades of pink, cotton candy, doll pink and metallic pink sequins


I used Simon's Exclusive Falling Hearts Stencil and embossed with paste mixed with Glass Bead Glitter Gel and coloured with ink from a Cotton Candy Ink Pad. I love this bead glitter gel, it's so fab and sparkly IRL. I also sprayed and splattered with Heidi Swapp Blush Color Shine.



For my next one I used 50 3 shades of grey. I used the new Simon's Exclusive Slate Grey Cardstock and Ink Pad. I achieved the 3 shades by 2nd and 3rd generation stamping. I think this is what is referred to as a bokeh effect :-)


I added a few silver metallic sequins for a little bit of sparkle and added some faux stitching for extra interest :-)


Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
