It's all about the texture .....

Happy Friday!

Whoo hoo!!!!  It's the weekend .... thank goodness!  What a busy week! I'm looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend .... as if that's going to happen!!

Just popping in this afternoon, with a quick post for this weeks Less is More challenge ..... time is running out, deadline approaching!!!

It's a Theme Week ....... we have to stick to the usual rules ...... CAS .... lots of white space and this week we also have to .......


I've  used the gorgeous Stampin Up! embossing folder ..... Softly Falling only I've turned my embossed piece upside down ..... see ... not only for Christmas cards!

The sentiment is from Penny Black .... simply stamped in Rose Bud Memento and then cut into a strip to fit across the bottom of my embossed panel

To finish off I added a couple of die cut flowers (one of my favourite dies if you hadn't already guessed! ..... I do use this A LOT!!)

I've used two layers, one of which was cut from cardstock covered in an old book page for the flower head, and then both layers have been coloured using Distress Inks.

A few dots of sparkly glitter around the sentient inside and we're done!

Speaking of using old book pages that's what I'll be doing along with a group of ladies tomorrow on a craft workshop.  We'll be stamping onto them, using them as backgrounds.  Colouring them, fussy cutting and layering them. Should be a fun day ...... I'd better get in the old craft room and finish off getting everything ready.

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day and have a fab weekend.

Cheerio until next time
