LIM #441

Hi there friends, I am sharing my latest card for the 'Less is More' challenge again today. The theme this time is 'Diamonds', here is what I came up with.

Thanks for the visit and enjoy your day ;)

Hmm! well who didn't read the cue card carefully enough....yep... that would be me! After making my card I then realized after adding the cue card that it should be ONE LAYER arghhhh!

So I made another one,...... adding the first card I made below the one layer one anyway ;)

I decided to make a digital card this time. Lots of 'faffing' about, I know a lot of you are confused by my digital cards sometimes. I will leave a quick explanation anyway, but if you don't have the right software to design stuff and be able to use certain 'brushes' and techniques I know it's most confusing!

However I know some of my friends do make digital cards and probably can figure out what I am talking about so  here goes! First I layered several digi water colour brushes, altering the colours as I went. Then I used a digi punch and punched out my first 'diamond' shape and added that to my card. Next for my second 'diamond' I did the same layering as before but this time I used a digi stencil to get my shape.

I added a nice digi border doodle, then my wording, added a bit of shadow to the wording and edge doodle and job done ;)

Card 2

I made my card base and coloured the edges with Hero Arts Shadow ink 'Cornflower'. Then  for my next layer I used an Avery Elle 'Finished Frames' die for the edge. 

I used a Darice E/F which has lots of diamonds on it (no name, sorry), and used the same blue ink as before and also some Lime Green green ink by Hobbycraft roughly swiped on the E/F before embossing on some spare card.

I randomly hand cut the diamond shapes and added them to my card. I stamped the sentiment using a Hero Arts stamp and cut my 'Joy' using a die from the same set. I swiped the colour on spare card before die cutting. 

 A few sequins in blue and green and my card was complete.

They are, however, both fab, well done on realising your mistake AND turning it to your advantage by making two for one! Can't tell you how many times I've made the same mistake though!

Both cards are wonderful Viv but extra loving the first 'One Layer' card and how you did the clever digital work x.
