Less Is More week 30

Hello, well here I am back with this week's challenge at Less Is More, take 3 challenges.

I have used my new Paper Smooches stamps, Boob Tubes. I am loving these retro televisions! And I'm so happy that Make The Day Special in the UK is now stocking Paper Smooches.

For my 3 challenges I have chosen -

week 6 -off the edge
week 9 - a touch of red
week 19 - in the frame

I simply stamped the 3 televisions, 2 of them off the edge, and added some black Sakura gloss pen and some red glitter then drew a frame with the same Sakura pen. Hope you like it!

Blue Poppies

Hello, today's card was inspired by a stunning card by Beth. I love that poppy digital stamp!

I printed it out twice and cut out the poppies to give them a little dimension and coloured them with Copics. My colouring is NOWHERE near as fantastic as Beth's beautiful shading but I am pleased with the depth of colour nonetheless.

Less is More week 27 - colour!

This week's challenge over at Less Is More is colour - to create something using the colours of your nation's flag, so for me it's red , white and blue since I live in England.

Red white and blue always make me think of the seaside and sailing so I've made this nautical notecard - hope you like it!

I must say thank you so very much for all the lovely welcoming comments last week. Limettes really are a wonderful bunch aren't they?

The sailor's hat is decoupaged with an extra layer for the brim which I coloured with a Copic pen. I had no matching red card so I coloured a scrap of white card with the same red pen and cut a fine slither to add a little more red. The layers and 'waves' are navy blue linen card which is so tactile.

Here's a close-up of the sailor's hat -
