As I didn't manage the Less is More challenge last week - (made my card then forgot to post it...... can an MRI affect your brain cells?????? LOL - my excuse anyway!) - I sat this morning and did this weeks as quickly as I could!
The theme was to take inspiration from the LIM blog banner - which consists of music, flourishes, flowers and script - I normally sit for hours when the LIM challenge is set desperately seeking some mojo, but this time it all came together pretty quickly... I hope it didn't come THAT quick that you thinks it looks terrible!!!
I knew what I wanted to do but realised I don't possess any music script stamps (note to self - BUY SOME!!!) - I do however have some images of sheet music saved so printed one out onto linen cardstock. I thought about tearing instead of cutting but opted for clean lines to make sure I kept in with the spirit of LIM - which is all about CAS cards and lots of white space.
I used a Hero Arts stamp set bought a couple of weeks ago in a craft shop closing down sale (bargain at a fiver!) - stamped the two circles in Black Onyx Versafine and cut out with nesties, then stuck them both onto the music layer. Masked the largest circle off and stamped again with the flourish stamp from the same set.
I resisted the temptation to add any Kraft type colour to the card as I thought it would be too much.
As the LIM banner has a bit of bling too I didn't need any excuse to dip into the embellie box - I thought the pearl and diamante tiny circle fitted quite well.
I finished off with 3 tiny gemstones and a stamped sentiment which I think is from Papermania and reminded me of the script on the LIM banner.
Am entering this also into the CASual Fridays challenge this week, which is to use two circles.
Hope you're all having a beautiful day and as always, thanks for having a peep at my latest offering! x
