Life is a Journey......
I'm cardmaking a little again now and getting back into the swing of things a bit more. I'm still not able to use my Cuttlebug and most of my punches, but I'm sure it won't be long before I will be getting back to normal. Off to see my surgeon tomorrow so hoping he'll be pleased with my recovery so far and gives me the 'all clear' to push myself a little harder.
I've really missed entering the Less is More weekly challenges and as I needed to create a birthday card for a male pal, I thought it would be a great opportunity to try to make the card fit the challenge theme for this week, which is a sketch.
I used three stamps from a little set which came free with a magazine recently, stamped with Momento and heat embossed with clear embossing powder (sadly the shine doesn't show up on the piccie). I created the vertical layer using Antique Linen and Bundled Sage Distress Inks, applied using stipple brushes. I also added just a touch of the Bundled Sage DI around the edges of the base card to distress them very slightly.
That's it, simple but I am reasonably pleased with the final result.
Thanks for dropping by to see today's project.
