LIM #290 - Exotic



The Less is More challenge inspired me to make these three cards this week on the theme of Exotic.

The first card features a set of stamps that I just had to have - they got delayed and then never saw ink until today - 2+ years later!!! I made a background using the new spellbinder tool n one brayer with TH inks. Then I decided my newest die (sticks frame)- which someone used a few weeks ago I think seemed to fit nicely. I cut it up and used it slightly differently to the original configuration.

Second card uses the new Leonie circle stencil (look out for a snippets card featuring this!) and a sheet of Crafters Companion Destination collection. The sentiment is from Hobby Art.

Third card is CC Destination collection again. Used one of the toppers trimmed slightly and mounted onto card and another background made with the mini brayer. Finally some embossing using a Hero Arts stamp.

Wow, wow, wow! Three amazing cards with great use of colour and layout to create eye catching and gorgeously exotic designs! I can't believe you haven't managed to use those lovely stamps from the first card before now... hope they're going to get another inking very soon :) Thanks so much for playing with us at Less is More this week.

Three fab cards and all so different too. Really great designs and I particularly like your first one with the way you've used the sticks frame on your background and the bright colours.
Thanks for sharing with us.
