Less is More #346 Take Flight

Hello there.  I’m back today with a new challenge at Less is More (LIM).  It’s theme week and challenge #346 is Take Flight.  Our sponsor this month is Happy Little Stampers.











I made this card for my crafty friend, Di, who celebrated her birthday this past Tuesday.  The idea came from the orchestra interlude Flight of the Bumblebee.  I also wanted to use that yippee diecut that I had saved after not using it on a previous project.  All images were stamped with Memento black ink on A2 size X-press It paper.

Masking was used to stamp the flower cluster.  Did some simple colouring and shading with Copic markers.  White heat embossed it’s your birthday on a black cardstock strip.  Mounted panel onto a white top folding card base.  Added clear shimmer to the bee’s wings and white yippee to finish.


Linking to the following challenges:
AAA CardsGame #98 Creatures Great or Small
CAS on Friday#116 Color Me Pretty Use Pencils or Markers
Addicted to Stamps and More#259 Clean and Simple
SSS Wednesday – Clean and Simple



That’s all from me this week.  Please head to the LIM blog for more inspirations from my team.  Hope you will join us this week.  As always, keep your cards clean and simple (CAS) and follow the challenge guidelines.  Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day.
