LIM week 65- sketch


The challenge on Less is More this week is a sketch. I've cut out using a nestie an edged circle from some text I printed out from a digi, added a butterfly embellishment and a PTI sentiment. I then decided to have another go, so I printed a hero arts digi of a typewriter and cut it out using my silhouette ( I know on the photo it looks like it is printed direct to the card, but it is mounted on foam pads). I then typed the text using the silhouette software and cut it out, I was originally going to use the positive, but it was so fiddly and I kept loosing bits! So I took the easy option and used the negative.

Great cards! I like the one with the butterfly best, but that is just because I love the background. That is very appealing to me :o)
