Good morning you all. Here the sun is shining again, which makes it much easier to get up in the morning. The post man helped me out of my bed this morning, too - not that you get the wrong idea, he just rang the bell to leave a parcel for a neighbour.
Yesterday I tried a card for the *less is more* challenge again. We had a sketch to follow this time, & it had to be a long narrow card. I made the first one in white, with a dotty embossed front panel, a pink ribbon and a pink flower. The edges have been very lightly inked in grey to give a bit of definition.
The 2 small ones have been cut from the left-overs to use as gift cards.
But my grunge loving heart needed to try something else. I took a piece of scrap card from a cereal packet, and covered it with 2 strips of aluminium tape from the DIY store before embossing it. Then I distressed it with inka gold *gunmetal* and archival black, and love the effect. Much cheaper than using metal foil, and lighter for a card, which makes the postage less, too. This time I used a dark grey velvet ribbon and a red rose, and I like the card a lot, although I'm afraid it is more grunge and simple than clean and simple. But at least the first card fits the bill!
So, here's wishing you all a great Monday, and lots of sunshine. Thanks for looking!
