Simply Less is More # 223

Hello there,
Just popping in with my entry for this weeks Simply Less is More Challenge were the focus is
I must admit I struggled a bit with this one, I think it shows with both the cards I made.

I tried to come up with something arty with this one
I embossed a rectangle with a SB die on the front of my card before masking the area with post its.
I used decorative chalks and a sponge for the background.
The grasses are stamps I bought at a craft fair some time ago but they have no makers name. They are stamped using Versacolor Evergreen.
The sentiment is Papertrey.

For this one I used a LOTV stamp, Gone Fishing, coloured with Promarkers.
The sky and water are sponged on using decorative chalks.
The sentiment is part of a set from Crafty Individuals.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
