Less is More #59

Happy Mother`s Day to all you Mums in the UK!
I hope you`re being spoilt rotten. I got some lovely craft goodies from mine and some flowers too. Can`t be bad!

This week at Less is More the challenge is MASKING. Easy peasy one, if your mojo is working to full capacity.
Not sure if mine is today lol.
Really not keen on this one. In fact I nearly didn`t post it, it just seems a bit...blah!
I`ve used Flourishes Zinnia stamp set and used the single flower. I stamped the orange one then made a mask and stamped the other two over it. Coloured them with markers and added a Flourishes Tag Lines sentiment.
This one I like much better.
I used Flourishes Gerbera daisy set which includes the butterfly.
I stamped the butterfly first, made a mask with a post it and then stamped the flowers off the edge.
Coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens. The sentiment is also by Flourishes.
I`ve tried to keep both cards CaS but I`m not sure, with the panel, that I`ve left enough `white space` but I quite like this design.
I`m never quite sure what colour the middles are supposed to be, the ones in supermarkets are dyed I know and I think they should maybe have yellow middles ( I`ll have to Google them ).

Last week I was very lucky to be chosen as the February winner at Less is More. Unfortunately Craftroom, who donated the prize are closing the business at the end of the month so stocks were pretty low. Luckily for me though, everything left was half price so I got twice as much.I feel a bit guilty saying woohoo because it`s always sad when a business closes but I`m really chuffed with my prize.
Two paper packs, two ink pads and a stamp set, how good is that? Thank you so much Chrissie and Mandi and ofcourse Julia at Craftroom.

Right gotta go I`m expecting my eldest daughter anytime with Charlotte, Nathan and ofcourse Ruby.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  16. Hi Lynne! I used that zinnia image recently in much the same way as you did here and wasn't too crazy about the finished card, but I had added some flourishes behind my flowers. I like the colors you chose much better than the ones I used. I really love your daisy card...beautiful job on the masking!! Big congrats on the win!!
