Today I'm sharing a couple of cards I made for the challenge at Less is More. They are asking players to CAS(E) this wonderful card by Aileen.
This is my first card where I pretty much copied Aileen's card. I was so in awe of her card that I couldn't see any other way of interpreting it!
So I got busy stamping and masking and then trying out some blue copics with the very beautiful Uniko Beautiful Blooms III.
I then die cut the sentiment window, stamped the greeting onto the cut out piece and placed it back into the aperture. I matted it all onto a dark blue card base and added a tiny die cut heart to finish off.
Stamps: Uniko Beautiful Bloom III, Simply Said Blocks
Inks: SU, night of navy
Dies: MFT, stitched rectangle word window; Lawn Fawn, hearts
Pens: Copic, B12, B14, B18
It was whilst I was colouring that an idea popped into my head about CAS(E)ing Aileen's card in a different way. And I came up with this:
It was the long plait of hair that caught my eye - somehow it reminded me of the way the petals intertwined on the flower blooms. And off I went on a complete tangent!
I added liberal amounts of sparkle to the hair and bow to pick up on the silver from Aileen's card. Then I die cut the same tiny heart as I used on the first card and matted the whole lot onto gorgeous sparkly silver card.
Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Fairy Tale Maiden
Ink: SU, night of navy
Die: Lawn Fawn, hearts
Pens: Copic, B12, B14, B18, B00, B01, E000, R20, C1, C3
So which one to link up at Less is More? Much as I adore the first card - simply because it's such a close copy of Aileen's card - I think I'm going for the Rapunzel look-a-like card as I'm hoping it will stand out more because it's such a weird interpretation!
Thanks so much for coming to see my blog today, it's been great to have your company.
And keep crafting!
