Eye, Eye...It`s time for another Less is More Challenge.

Hello All!
 I`m a bit late with my entry for this weeks Less is More Challenge. As it`s the first week of the month we have a colour challenge...with a difference,
THE COLOUR OF YOUR EYES
My eyes are brown. Plain old muddy looking brown. I got out the 5x magnifying mirror to try to find anything unusual in there, little glints of gold or even amber but apart from some mucky looking bits around the edges that would terrify an iridologist I`ve come to the conclusion that they`re nothing special. Having said that, I wouldn`t be without them for the world lol..
My creative imagination has dried up in the mini heatwave too, so after several failed attempts at producing a world class work of art, I gave up and made this one ROFL.
I used cream hammered card for the base.
I had some scraps of kraft that had already been run through the Bug with a Woodgrain  EF (Craft Concepts) on my desk from my St Lukes DT card so I cut them into squares with a nestie die before matting them onto dark tan card.
The leaf stamp is from Chocolate Baroque Autumn Hedgerow stamp set, stamped in Versafine Onyx Black onto dark tan card and cut out. I`ve placed them at different angles and both they and the mats are raised with foam pads.
The sentiment is Papertrey Inc also stamped in Versafine Black.

I would like to say a very big welcome to my two new followers Susan and Doreen. Thank you for choosing to follow my little blog :)

Considering yesterday was World Card Making Day, I didn`t get a great deal done in the loft but my garden is looking a treat at the moment. I just couldn`t pass up on what had to be the best 1st October in years. Sadly it`s back to the cardigan tomorrow me thinks lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  17. Hi Lynne,

    Your eyes are beautiful the way they are - wonder why we women are so unkind to ourselves.

    Love your card. Just plain awesome.
