Let the words say it all .......

Hello again ......

As promised earlier ...... a little crafty post for you.
It's the middle of the week already ....... and so far this week it's been glorious here.  Blue skies and sunshine ..... I hope it's nice where you are.

I've missed playing along with the Less is More Challenge for the last couple of weeks but I wasn't going to miss this week ....... it's my favourite ....... One Layer Week!
The challenge is to make your SENTIMENT the main focus of the card.  Still lots of white space required, and that all important just ONE layer ......


I knew exactly which stamp I was going to use ...... my new Stampin Up Sale-a-bration set Botanicals for You ...... the large sentiment is perfect for the job.


I just wish I had my MISTI .......  it could have done with another stamping I think to get a deeper colour only I wasn't going to risk doing it again free hand!!
Yes, I've finally given in and ordered the MISTI tool, well they were such a good price from Craft Obsessions .... I couldn't resist! It was dispatched yesterday so it should be here before the end of the week,  Just need to find time to have a play with it!

Anyway .... where was I?
The sentiment was stamped using a pink Memento ink (it is actually a little darker in real life, than it looks here) then I gave it the dotty treatment with a white gel pen to add a bit more interest


A few flowers underneath adds a bit more colour .........


a few nice words on the inside too .........  job done!


OK ... time to make a start on the mountain of ironing ...... oh joy!  I hope your evening's entertainment is more fun!

Thanks for popping by ...... again!

Cheerio until next time

  1. You are going to love your Misti. I was playing with it today and used it for silver embossing and usually one coat is quite enough and wouldn't need another but did it anyway with the Misti and such a difference as second layer was smooth silver embossing and loved it! In fact it was for the Less is More challenge too....so see you over there! Love the bold sentiment and the white space. Such a cute sentiment inside too, thank you for sharing x
