Less is More - Week 52

Less is More time again and this week it's a sketch ...

We would like the card to be

  • rectangular
  • in landscape orientation
  • with the band remaining in a vertical position 
As it's a very simple sketch,  we would like it to remain as is without any rotation of either the card or the vertical band.




I masked and inked a panel with Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Olive and Barn Door DI's
Swirl stamp is Kanban inked in Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed
Sentiment is a magazine freebie
Butterfly punch is Martha Stewart,  punched from inked card, with a touch of stickles

Thanks Mandi and Chrissie for not stressing us out too much this week!

Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by.

Suze xx

Love your inked panel, Suz and the flourishes coming over the edge. The added bling and butterfly are just the right amount of embellishments. x

Victoria said...

This is lovely and the swirls over the edge of the panel help to make it feel more like part of the card, something I struggled with.
