Less is more - one layer & ink!


Good morning all!

It's taken me a few days to get round to posting it but here is my entry for this weeks LIM challenge. This week Chrissie and Mandi want to se a one layer card using ink! It was suggested that we use the ink in a way we haven't tried before.... or by using our favourite technique.
Now, I love creating shapes using the sponging technique and a shaped stencil, so this is what I went for...


Materials

CS: SU Naturals Ivory

Stamps: SU Just Believe, Vintage Vogue

Tools: SU Stamp-a-ma-jig, Cho Chip, Crumb Cake, So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie ink pads

Misc: Sponge daubers

I love the simplicity of this card and it was unbelieveably quick to make, less than 10 minutes, so perfect for those quick cards you need last minute, just a change of sentiment and it's suitable for any occasion!!

For those of you who have noticed I haven't decorated the inside of this card I apologise. Time is precious this week and I thought better to get a card done for the beloved LIM challenge with no decorated inside than no card at all!! I will be decorating the inside though before I give this card away I promise!

Well thanks for stopping by today! Must dash, got to get off to work!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~


Well
