Less is More 50 and Unscripted Sketches 141

Monday, January 16, 2012

I had a very productive card-making day yesterday - I just love when that happens.  And I've got the day off from work today so hopefully I'll be productive again.  This is the first of the cards that I've been making.

The challenge this week at Less is More is to make a one layer card with the subject of birds.  I remembered that I had this cute stamp from Happy Together so armed with the very CAS sketch at Unscripted Sketches I put this together.

I'm not sure why but for some reason this is the second time that I've participated in a Less is More challenge recently and felt the need to hand draw a square to fit around my stamped image.  I don't know - I just took one look at the sketch and that's where my thoughts went.  For this one I punched out two squares from cardstock and then used them as templates to draw them on the cardstock.  I stamped the bird in timber brown Stazon so that I could color it in with a Daffodil Delight marker.  Apparently I didn't wait long enough for the ink to dry, because it ran a smidge on the wing.  The square and the sentiment were done in Early Espresso.

Thanks for stopping by today!
