I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Less is More #23

This card is made to fit this week's challenge on LESS IS MORE #23 which is a theme of:-

One Layer card
Something with legs

I bought these Lavinia stamps at NEC show in March and this is the first time they have been used (bad Jane!!!!). Not sure about it though - hmmmmm! Made the card from what I remembered of the demo on the day.

I masked the edges of the card then used DI in Weathered Wood and Peeled Paint for the background and masked the hill with torn paper and a moon with punched circle. The stamps used are fairy, wishing well, stars, fern and mushrooms.

CARD SIZE:
4.24" x 5.5"
IMAGES:
Lavinia Stamps
SENTIMENT:
Personal Impressions
MEDIUM:
Distress Inks and Stayzon
