Less Is More - Week 52 - A Sketch

Back again so soon, lol!  As soon as I saw this week's LESS IS MORE challenge I knew I had to play (especially having missed the last couple of weeks) - it's a sketch this time and it is deceptively tricky for such a simple layout.

I've had two go's at it and might well come back for a third later.  Here are the first two anyway.


This one was very quick - a bit of Post-It Note masking, some Distress Ink sponging and simple stamping with those gorgeous Stampendous Agapanthus, finished off with a cute little Hero Arts sentiment.


Equally simple, a strip of Joanna Sheen tartan paper, punched both sides with Martha Stewart heart loop punch, a Magenta stamp lightly coloured with Distress Inks and my new favourite sentiment from Personal Impressions.

My fuzzy little brain is still full of ideas so prepare yourself for some more another time!

Hugs, Sxx
