less is more: use beads

It's less is more time. This week the challenge is to use beads. My original idea was to use beads in the centre of flowers, but then I made these roses using PaperArtsy dies. (I didn't use them exactly how they are designed, I'll explain another time how I did them)

The beads didnt work in the centre of these flowers so instead I just used them as decoration around the flowers.
The message is a docrafts embossing folder which I used on the same tye of card as the base card, trimmed and lightly inked with tea dye distress ink.

less is more: Frame it

This week's challenge at Less is More is to use frames. Of course the card still has to be clean and simple.
I made my frame using two dies from PaperArtsy, I inked and stamped the frame with this stamp and the sentiment is from this set.

I finished with a simple ribbon tied around the frame. I'm thinking now that this card would work well using patterned paper to make the frame.

less is more: spots and stripes

I love this week's challenge at less is more it's one layer week AND spots and stripes.

I've made my spots and stripes without any stamps. I masked of areas for the stripes and dragged an ink pad along them. I then created the spots just using the eraser end of a pencil and the same ink pads.

I've finished with a simple sentiment stamp from PaperArtsy
