Flippin 'eck! It's been pouring down here today - cold, wet, windy - 'orrible!!!!
Had to go out too as I had a hospital appointment so braved the weather and went for lasagne and garlic bread with OH afterwards - which was nice and at least the steaming coffee warmed me up a bit.
It's been a couple of weeks since I've had enough mojo (and time) for Less is More - have managed a couple of CAS cards recently but none of them have fitted the challenges - maybe I shouldn't have posted them and saved the pics in case Chrissie and Mandi come up with a theme and I had a card to fit???
Am not so sure that this is really up to the mark either, but have posted it anyway so hope it passes muster.........
The basic card is Ivory linen (although it looks white here). I like this embossing folder and use it a lot - the stamp is 'Garden Chic' by Ecogreen - have you ever bought a set of stamps cos you really like them and then struggled for ideas as to what to do with them? 'Cos that's exactly what happened to me with this set.
Determined to try and create something with them instead of them gathering dust in the drawer, I dusted the stamped image with Shabby Shutter, Wild Honey and Scattered Straw distress inks. I used a watercolour brush and coloured the poopy heads with Barn Door DI and then used some glossy accents.
The little bee is from the same stamp set and I added a tiny bit of glitter to it's wings. The twine started off it's life as black and white so ran it across the ink pads. As the LIM challenge called for a charm to be used I added a flower to the twine and tied them all together.
Overall I think this is an 'OK' effort. I have another idea in my head and if I can get the cells and the hands to work together I may submit another - but don't hold your breath!
