Less is More - aqua

Happy Birthday Less is More - thank you for all the fab challenges Chrissie and Mandi, it's been great fun joining in with you :o)  The challenge this week is 'aqua', which I really like but seem to have very little of in my craft room... I've been trying to think something up all week, but the end result wasn't really worth the wait!


Annoyingly it doesn't even look particularly aqua in the photo, but I promise it is!  I searched through all my inks but the nearest I've got is a distress ink in broken china - a bit too bright I thought.  So I rummaged through all the paper and cardstock in my stash and found a few sheets of this mottled paper, no idea where it's from.

I used black core'dinations to make the card base, the stamps are from a Flourishes set and the corner die is the Madera Corner by Memory Box.  I've 'coloured' the shoe with a sakura clear stardust pen for a bit of shimmer.

I've had to abandon the car around the corner this morning.  We had a very light covering of snow last night - on top of a bit of leftover ice from the last lot.  I took Morgan to school and the car made it off of our cul-de-sac ok, but when I tried to come back up again it wasn't having any of it!  One of the neighbours came over and gave me a push, but it still wasn't going anywhere, so I had to back up and park on the road at the bottom.  So I'm not looking forward to going out again to pick him up from school, fingers crossed it'll have cleared a bit by then.

Back later with my Stamp Fairy GDT card :o)

  5. Right ok this is so unfair not only do you make gorgeous cards all the time but you always manage these LIM cards PERFECTLY........share your secret,.......I cannit do these for blinking toffee honestly I would do better grabbing summat from the bin, stamping on it a bit.....no not with rubber with my feet & then possibly reversing my large van over it a few hundred times in the drive.....
    You however always make fantastic ones that ARE ALWAYS worth the wait......do you know I hate shouting at ya but ya gotta listen woman.......I have my hand on my hip right now as well missy lol.

    Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

  18. Love that you used the aqua for the bkgd and the black is such a vivid contrast :0). It's a beautiful card Lisa.
    You're brave attempting to take the car out.... I'm frightened of driving in these conditions!
