This week's Less Is More Challenge is
I have not been able to play for the last 2 weeks, and I really wanted to be sure to make something for LIM this week. I hate to miss it. I don't know why, but I really struggled to come up with a star themed project. I remembered a fabulous sheet of paper that I have - blue with silver metallic stars. I thought I could find some inspiration if I held it in my hand LOL, but alas, I never found it. Then I got the idea of using Verve's Starstruck collection and embossing in silver on Night of Navy card stock. The card came together from there. I have to say that I love it - except for the sides on the white panel. It looked too empty without some embellishment, but nothing I tried worked out to be fabulous. I think piercing may have worked, but in the end, I added silver dots with a silver Sharpie. I am not happy with that, they are uneven - I may just have to re-make it. I do love the rest of the card though, so I went with it.
I pulled out an old SU wheel and inked it with Versa Mark to make a star background on the Kraft. The embossing of the star came out beautifully, and I just love the sentiment from a new PTI set called Stylish Sentiments Holiday.
Thank you for stopping by. I actually posted four things this weekend, which is a record for me. An October snowstorm worked wonders for my crafting. Tonight I made a fabulous pot roast with shitake mushrooms and lots of root vegetables and wine. Feels like mid January, but tomorrow is Halloween! We have our costumes together. There will definitely be frost on the pumpkin for the festivities. Hope you have a fun day tomorrow whether you do or don't do Halloween.
