Happy Monday Folks........
I went all out for a one layer card design for the Less is More challenge this week, which is entitled "Something with Legs".............
I decided to have a go at masking and daubing in a background, followed my multiple use of the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get my image lined up, and that image came from various stamp sets too.
I began with a Sahara Sand card base and used those handy yellow sticky notes to mask off a square area. I used a sponge dauber to add some Whisper White ink as a background. I then used one of the Cute by the Inch (Level 2 Hostess set) stamps with the bird on a branch and used my markers to just ink the branch and leaves in Chocolate Chip and Wild Wasabi ink. I stamped this and then inked again and lined up a second and third branch with the Stamp-a-ma-jig.
The bird image on my card is from the Four Frames set, again inked with markers, Soft Suede, and a little Cajun Craze. I then carefully stamped the bird as if sitting on one of the branches.
Finally I inked the sentiment from the same Cute by the Inch stamp in Cajun Craze and popped it in the bottom right corner.
Really simple, but I think this is one of my favourite cards so far.............
