Thank you so much for all your hints and tips! I quite agree…I think my first card in the Less is More challenge (One Layer Embossed) was a little too more and not enough less…so I’ve had another go.
I’ve kept the same principle (although I now know it’s not resist embossing) and have black embossed the image. This time, I took the advice of Lady LIM and masked off an area to give it its “Less is More” feel. I also reduced the amount of foliage and didn’t bother with the Wasabi green this time. I cut a smaller circle out of another piece of card and used the hole to inked the sun with Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango and a little bit of Real Red around the edge. I then used the circle I cut out to mask the sun while I lightly inked the sky using Marina Mist. I’ve added a smaller, ‘more appropriate for the card’ image too.
Oh…fab tip about the talc too, Chrissie. I used to keep some in my kit for when I’d accidentally got glue on something….and after a quick hunt I found it again and it worked a treat!
I’m a lot happier with this version .
Thanks again for all your comments.
