Very simple one layer card start to finish 15 minutes. This is another of Mo's wonderful digital images. I did lots of cards last year with this image but only the one this year cause I now have toooo much to choose from.
I coloured this image in with copics and it has gone through to the back but I always put a liner sheet in so I'm not worried. Kept it very simple using three red shades and a lovely soft green and shadow for the top. Dotted lots of dots in pale blue and pale green. Only problem with red is that it is really easy to have bits of overflow (show that is) so I used the colourless blender to remove as much as possible. It is more obvious in the photos than IRL.
Close up here shows just how cute this little bub is and at the moment it reminds me of my youngest grandson who is always, always smiling and has the deepest chuckle you ever have heard. You can see him here all dressed up for his Aunties wedding.
To add glitter I used a glue pen to fill in where I wanted the glitter to go and used the Martha Steward ultra fine white glitter. Check out the sparkle.
The challenge at Less is More: One Layer: What's In My Stocking
So I think the card fits the bill: Looks CAS to me, one layer and what's in my stocking?
Well all I want for Christmas is my grandchildren visiting me on Christmas morning.
Would also like to enter:
Okay thats it for today but before you go thought I would share some Postit Note holders I made for Elysha to take to her program yesterday to give to the staff as it was the last day.
Nothing too exciting and not all of them but gives you an idea of what they are like. So easy to make and everyone seems to enjoy using them. Great way to use up scraps of paper and bits of embossed paper and some of the butterflies and flowers I always seem to be colouring in.
I have containers full of flowers and butterflies as they are so easy to do when you are stuck at appointments for up to 4 and even 7 hours waiting to see specialists. I hate to just sit and love reading but find after a while reading makes me feel like sleeping so bits of everything keep me alert.
Ahh the joys of having a daughter with a few additional health issues and parents who can not longer do appointments on their own.
Thanks for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
