Had a lovely hour yesterday, playing with the same colours of DI I’d used on my LIM leaves card, but this time on Glossy card and with stipple brushes. It’s a long time since these little friends of mine have been out of their basket. I used to use them all the time to add colour because I found it easier to place colour exactly where I wanted to AND because it’s good for you. There’s something about thumping a brush on that card – very therapeutic.
It has to be said that I’m not over happy with this one because I added micro beads in Sepia Accents but it’s given a bit too much dimension to the sunflower heart. Might just have to add more to the petals… will think about that one.
This one’s just a matted up version of one of my LIM one layer leaf cards. I liked the colour (Aged Mahogany) and the design, but thought it a bit too stark to stay on its own.
Browsing through this week’s LIMette entries has given me lots of ideas. It’s amazing what you can learn from looking at other people’s LIM design ideas. Some people have a real knack for making a simple card stunning. LIM is a great challenge, so if you get chance, please do join in – the beauty of it is it doesn’t take long at all, although some of the designs aren’t quite as simple as they appear to be. There are some incredibly talented peeps in blogland!
