Less Is More Guest Designer

Hi! I'm so excited to have you drop by today as I'm Guest Designing over at Less Is More. As this is a month with five Saturdays it's their Lucky Dip week and the word they've pulled out to inspire your cards is SHADOW.

So I decided to attempt a little shadow stamping on my card:

I used the fabulous Visible Image butterfly inkcognito and stamped it in grey to act as the shadow. Then I overstamped it in purple slightly to the left of the grey with the matching large butterfly stamp.

I repeated this technique with the sentiment. All of the butterfly received a generous coat of Wink of Stella and I added some enamel dots to finish it all off.

Stamps: Visible Image, Thanks You set, Butterfly Inkognito, Large Butterfly
Inks: SU, smoky slate; Memento, grape jelly 
Enamel dots: Freckled Fawn

Thanks so much for your time today.  I hope you've enjoyed my post as Guest Designer for Less is More and will pop on over to their challenge to ogle the cards made by their very talented DT.

And keep crafting!
