This week the Less is More challenge has to include a die cut. Here is my take on it and an excuse to play with my new Spectrum Noir Pencils.
Spellbinders Die D-Lites Frame 1
Stampendous Cottage Path stamp
Happy Birthday stamp
Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
Adirondack Shell Pink ink pad
Spectrum Noir Pencils
Using the swirls stencil and Shell Pink ink I dusted ink over the front of an A5 card blank to create a swirly background. I stamped the Cottage Path onto white card with Tuxedo Black and coloured in with the pencils. It is quite hard getting shading in on such a small image but the pencils did help a bit!
I used the die to cut two mats out of white paper and inked them with the Shell Pink ink. I cut the Cottage Path image down to fit inside the frame. The remaining frame I cut and overlapped to make a smaller frame to fit the remaining part of the Cottage Path image.
I then arranged my elements onto the front of the card and stuck them down before adding the birthday greeting.
Thank you for visiting. Take care.
