Less is More #298

Hello!

Saturday has rolled around again and we are back with another Less is More Challenge!  This week we are looking for spiders/insects on your cards.  I searched my stash and couldn't find a single spider image so I made cards featuring a few other insects.....

This card features a dragonfly from Clarity that is silver embossed on vellum.  The central panel is popped up over the card base which has been lightly inked with a stencil in blues and greens.



On this card I used a cute little ladybird stamp from Hero Arts stamping it repeatedly in the shape of a heart.  I popped a die cut you from Avery Elle in the centre.  I coloured the ladybirds with pencils.

 
I look forward to seeing what you create this week.  Check out the inspiration from the rest of the talented DT over at Less is More!
 
Thanks for stopping by,

  1. I love the background of that first card! It looks like the dragonfly is swooping over a misty stream. Gorgeous. Your ladybirds are super cute on your second card and it's a lovely design <3 Have a good weekend! x

  2. Your dragonfly card is so soft, love how it looks like it's flying over water ripples. And a great design for your ladybirds, so effective xx

  3. Can just see the sun glinting off that super-soft water under the beautiful dragonfly Sarah! Such a peaceful atmosphere is invoked on that card. Makes you want to do a big sigh, smile and think 'all is right with the world'! Sensational. Adore your design with the ladybirds; it is fun, fresh and funky. Lovely to use them as part of the sentiment too. xx

  11. Hi,

    I came across your inspiring blog when I looked for ideas for Uniko stamps that I've bought. Great stuff!

    Is Waltzing mouse still in the business? I cannot find them anywhere.

    Many crafting regards,
