Hello card

Hi there, how is your weekend going so far? we had a few snow flurries but it's not hanging around this time I am pleased to say. Sooo cold though brrr!

I am here to share my latest card for the 'Less is More' challenge once again and this time it's the dreaded 'One layer card' and 'Stencils'. I do have quite a few stencils luckily,... not that that helped me though lol. After a while I came up with this idea, hope you all approve ;)

Believe it or not I did my stencilling quite carefully,  a diamond pattern....then I just decided it needed to be much more 'loose' I added more water and softened it. I then added a sweet daisy.....I do like a nice flower as you probably know already lol. Do come and have a quick peek and see what you think...I am happy with it anyway ;)

Of course, as always..... enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)

hi viv ... love your sweet little card and love the stencilling too ... I have been having a bit of a messy play too ... they make it look so easy on hochanda don't they ?? we have a lot of snow again most unusual for Waterlooville ... looks lovely but the country comes to a standstill so quick don't you think ... hope you are having a great weekend ... happy crafting and love sandy xx

So delicate and pretty. You can still see the diamond stencil image, even though you've softened it up and made it looser. I think your card is CAS perfection and is fabulous x

The water softening ROCKS as it takes the card (nice though it was) to whole other level - great idea

Those loose diamonds make a very pretty background for that delicate flower -great idea to use water for a more artsy look. Thanks for joining us at Less is More!

This is a super clever idea, Viv ! Love how your stencilling looks after having softened it with water, it really makes a fabulous background for this beautiful daisy ! A CAS-tastic take on our challenge. Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at Less is More.
