Less Is More Sketch



This weeks Less is More Challenge is based on a sketch.  There are already some great entries...

Here is my take...





 To me the sketch screamed aperture.




Close ups of the centre piece... One taken from the front of the card through the aperture and one taken with the card open.





I used a Tatty Teddy brad, layered it up with coordinating papers with inked edges.  I also inked the edges of the card and the aperture.  I stamped 'hello' with shadow and london fog (I love that grey is never called grey!)  Then using the very subtle shadow ink I added a butterfly stamp to the front and flower stamps to the inside.







Just because I hadn't really finished using my daily allowance of creativity I added a butterfly to the envelope too!





I feel like I need to apologise for the quality of the photos today.  The weather is so pants that the light isn't good enough for a crisp shot.  I should have rigged some daylight lights up but didn't think about ti until after taking the first batch of photos... dopey!

Thanks for stopping by!
