Less is More # 17 Take 3,4 & 5

Good Morning All!

I hope you`re enjoying your Bank Holiday Monday. I`m not a happy bunny today. I woke up at 5:15 this morning dying for a wee and decided to stay up. Not a good idea. I`m now a very grunmpy bunny, can`t decide if I`m tired, menopausal or just a plain miserable old witch. It`s chucking it down with rain and looks set to stay that way til late afternoon and on top of that I have to work today Urgh.

So, now I`ve I`ve sent you all into a state of deep depression lol, I`ll show you my cards for this weeks challenge at Less is More where we are to use one of 5 squares, i.e. the 4 corners or the middle. Yesterday I used the middle and bottom right corner. Today I thought I`d post the other 3 corners all in one post. Can`t say that any of them are my best work but here goes,

This one looks brighter IRL. I stamped the image, elegant weeds from Hero arts in versacolour Marigold and added some Glamour Dust to the flower heads.
The sentiment is by Flourishes.

The chandelier stamp is Papermania Chatsworth collection, Stamped in Versafine and embossed in clear EP.
I`ve added some tiny red gems here and there to give it some bling.
The sentiment is from the same set/.

This is another stamp from the Chatsworth collection, stamped in clear ink and embossed in detail silver EP.
The sentiment is again from Flourishes.

When I first saw the challenge on saturday I thought it would be easy but to be honest I have found this one to be the most challenging so far, oh, except for acetate lol.
Maybe it`s just me...

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
