Less Is More ,,, Off Centre Challenge

Happy Easter !! I hope you're all having a lovely time whereve you are :-)

This week on the Less Is More Challenge the LIM Diva Mandy and Lim Lady Chrissy. have given us an easier week ,, phew !! :-) they fairly had blogland in uproar last week with their acetate challenge !! It was fun tho and they did have us rummaging in draws and am sure it wasn’t only me who found stuff we forgot we had !!

So ,,, Off Center Challenge ,,,,

I need to make a card for a very dear friend who has just lost her sister ,,, am not sure this is IT but that was my starting point.

I used some new stamps from Hero Arts, the flower is from the Luscious Patterned Flower set . I inked the leaves with Bundled Sage Distress Ink and stamped off onto a scrap paper, spritzed with water and then stamped onto the card ,, I wanted a watercolour effect ,, don’t know why !! The flower was stamped with a tri colour brilliance ink pad and I cut out and popped onto the card with pop dots. I added a clear button to the center with some black twine threaded thro. I doodled some stitches around the edge and layered with purple SU card ( bought from Mandi )

I think I stamped this a little high up on the card and feel it would have looked better if the flower wasn't flying off the top,,,it looks like a gust of wind caught it ,,,lol :-)

edited ,,,Thanks for the advice Chrissie :-) I stamped another set of leaves to 'ground' the flower ,,, was worried it would fly off the top of the card altoghether lol :-)

What do you think ? :-)
