"Less is More" Challenge

Week 17 and it's a recipe over at the Less is More Challenge.  "Pick a Square" ... you must contain your image (and sentiment) in one of the 5 following squares and leave the rest of the card completely white!


I'm feeling very chilled out tonight, so I've had a bit of fun...



First one is an Inkadinkado stamp, paper pieced in holographic paper with a touch of bling:





Next, a discontinued Stampin Up stamp, coloured with Sakura pens and mounted onto a clear embossed panel.




And finally another bit of paper piecing and a touch of stickles and distress ink (stamps were free with a magazine) - I know this one is rubbish, so don't waste your time commenting on it, Lol!







Apologies for not commenting much last week (isn't it annoying when life takes over crafting!)

Hope you're all having a great weekend and thanks for visiting.

Suze xx

LOVE them all, love the bling on the tortoise, love the classiness of the second and love the quirkiness of the third (not rubbish at all)

Kathleen said...

The tortoise made me giggle and I think it is a fabulous card, love the colours, Also the other 2 cards are really lovely and I am so pleased that you enjoyed playing making them as it makes it all worth while, I feel if making a card is a lot of hassle it takes the pleasure out of it, hint there for our Leaders.
