Week 18 LIM card 2

Here is my second card for this weeks 'Less is More' challenge
( Monochrome).Strange how my background dissappeared it is back and the annoying 'bandwidth exceeded'
message is gone too...most strange. Anyway I will resize my
photo's and see if that helps, hope you can still see it clearly then.

I made this card the same way I did yesterdays card,
using TH distress inks again. Brushed Corduroy for the first matt
( misted again) then I stamped my swirly heart stamp using sand
beige ink and embossed it  with enchanted gold embossing powder.
I then lightly stamped the L and love part of the sentiment stamp I
used yesterday in the bottom left corner.I popped it up on little
pads then added another matt edged with sand beige ink.I added a
punched butterfly again ( also dabbed with TH brushed Corduroy)
then added a pearl coloured with a Copic ( brick beige).Sentiment
inked with brick beige too.Hope you can make out the swirly heart
in gold, maybe if you peer really close up lol!!
Already planning card number three..................and still not tidied
up in here & have only a few inches to craft in ( slaps own
wrist!!) :O) Have a lovely weekend everyone! Viv xx
ps. I can now edit the placing of the words again...... somewhat.....hallelujah!!!

This is awesome Viv, I really love the effect you created and you reminded me that I have played with this technique in ages ! Sadly, I too work in a tiny crafting space as my workdesk soooo... needs a tidy up LOL

Blogger has certainly given you some problems recently Viv, has it made the odd line breaks in your blog too? It's made it quite difficult to follow the thread of your writing.
This card is AMAZING!
I love the background you have created, it's simply stunning, the little butterfly is the perfect touch!
Thanks so much

Hi Viv!
You surprise me with each of your cards! Everytime I think: "now - this one is the most beautiful - she´ll not be able to make a more beautiful one" Then the next entry comes and you show us a card, that is even more beautiful than the last! It is unbelievable! You are amazing!
Thanks for sharing your stunning cards with us!
May I ask for a favour?! Please show us more pics of your cards - maybe in different angles - I´d really, really appreciate that!

Viv said...

Of course I will Ulina, no problem, making a note of it :O)

This is gorgeous. The technique you used has gone right over my head (I'm not that creative) but it looks awesome!

Wow this is a master piece. Yes I can just see the gold heart in the photo, pity I can't make out more detail because it looks gorgeous and reading about all the work that went into it I am sure it is even more stunning IRL. Sue x
