LIM Guest Designer #386 Water

Hi there friends, I am honoured to be Guest Designer over at the 'Less is More' challenge this time. I do love joining in their challenges as you probably noticed lol. Their theme is 'Water' this time, it can be in any form...water, ice, snow so lots of possibilities here.

I went with 'raindrops' as I found these unloved stamps which had been sitting looking at me for a while now. The first card I made didn't work out as my sentiment covered my raindrops ....argggh and it was going so well at first!  anyway I made another (see my second card below).

Hmm I wasn't so keen on the raindrops I used this time... so back to making another like the first one I messed up lol. Are you still following me ? I then made another card (the 1st one you see below)...this time leaving a space for my silvery embossed  sentiment.....and relax !

I added a few more raindrops in between my sentiment using some different raindrop stamps I have. I gave it all a watery background before stamping. A bit of shadow and highlight and my card was complete.

I made a couple more cards too but I will show you those in another post soon. Hope you enjoy seeing them all and hope you will join in the challenge this time too ;)

Anyway thanks for the visit and come and have a closer look at my cards......

I too have this stamp set and it is woefully underused (actually unused I think). Funnily enough I had a dream about it this last week and was determined to use it and SOON. You can imagine my delight when I saw the challenge at Less is More. I hope I find time to play and I hope my card is as lovely as yours.

Well, both of your versions look superb Viv. Your designs are just stunning! Incredibly CAS but with so much interest too. I love those raindrop stamps because they look so 3d and the watery backdrop is really pretty. Thanks so much for being a wonderful guest designer for us at Less is More xx

I came very close to using one of these droplet stamps - they are so realistic and so gorgeous. Your cards are absolutely wonderful. I love the silver embossing and the way you applied the color to the droplets. It's wonderful to have you with us as Guest Designer! Congratulations!
