LIM week 104 - sketch



This is the sketch for the challenge on Less is More this week. My first card is also using some of my snippets. I took a piece of card and laid down a layer of cosmic shimmer glue and then ripped snippets to make a collage. I then trimmed it into a strip and de-bossed it, running some TH inks over to cover any gaps and tint the tears. The sentiment is stamped onto a predefined shape which was on one of the snippets. Finished with a little bit of bakers twine. I'd also like to put this card into the playground over on Pixies Crafty Snippets week #57.

My second card uses two TH stitching embossing folders which I lightly inked over before adding the sentiment and topper.

Two lovely cards Lynn! And super use of snippets - my guess is that debossing is the opposite of embossing (ie the card the other way up (or down) in the folder? Sigh, still so much to learn!

Hugs, Di xx

Two lovely cards, Lynn. You've taken the one sketch and produced two distinctly different cards. I love your treatment of the snippets in the first one and the stitching in the second is an ingenious interpretation of the band on the sketch. Elizabeth xx

Linby...your first card is awesome! I love that technique you used! The embossing on top of the torn pieces really makes it meld together! Love the image on the second card. I was looking at your profile and noticed that you've done all of the same "crafting" that I have! Just recently I decided that I would learn to knit socks. I've knitted for years, but never tried socks. What a learning experience it has been for me!! I done a lot of ripping out an re-knitting, but I think I'm finally getting the hang of it.

Both cards are lovely Lynn but I'm blown away by the first. What a great technique and a brilliant use of pattern and colour. Vicky x

What an inspired idea for little snippets of paper - I shall be using that idea (if you don't mind!?)
Love the cards - but seeing as I'm in a frugal frame of mind, the first one is just about my favourite:)
Anyway... I was just popping over from Pixie's Place to say "Hi!"...
