Less is More Week 34

I was very annoyed with myself that the glue didn't dry on time to submit my LIM card for last weeks 1000 entries Anything Goes challenge - sorry guys! I could get a photo as it kept falling apart!

So I tried extra hard this week!

No idea why Ive gone for silver wedding anniversary lol but I am very pleased with what I came up with!
Chrissie and Mandi gave us this fab sketch to work with:

Bit of an arty side view

I cut a heart out of white card smothered it in embossing ink and dunked it in my silver embossing powder. I think I did this three or four times until I was happy with how covered it was!
I haven't used my embossing powders for years and wonder why because I love them! I think the mess I manage to make stops me sometimes lol.

I printed the sentiment on to the card blank first using a free font  called "The only exception." I printed the word 'silver' in a very light grey so when I went over it in my quickie glue pen and glamour dust it looked silver and sparkly and I'm quite impressed!

What I used:
  • Craftwork Card card blank
  • Computer generated sentiment
  • Crystal glamour dust
  • Hand drawn heart covered in silver embossing powder
  • Hand drawn box with black fine liner pen
  • 4 x small crystal gems. 
I really do love this sketch and have a few more ideas for more cards, shame I have don't have enough time to try them all now I'm back at bloomin' Uni!!
Oh well lol.

Off to get ready for Guides - Cupcake Madness tonight nom nom nom!!
