A Real Challenge

The Less is More challenge this week is monochrome so I chose my favourite colour - green. It's a small square Craft UK card. I used a freebie stamp that I got with a craft magazine last week and coloured him and his lily pad with Promarkers in Forest Green, Pear Green and Lime Green. The words were stamped in Versacolor Emerald. He was cut with a Spellbinders nestie and backed with a Papermill green card scalloped nestie. I drew three lines with the three Promarker greens and yes, you've guessed it, two of them splodged on the left. I drew them quickly to stop this happening so I'm blaming the pens this time!!

Eric's not feeling too good today - whether it's because of the infusion he had on Wednesday or not we don't know but he's resting downstairs. If I get the chance I might attempt another card but it all depends on how many times I have to trudge up and downstairs.

  1. Hi Hazel, I do hope Eric will be feeling better soon.
    Sometimes the thumbnails take a little while appear, glad it's there now.
    This is a cute image...as to your lines, if there's a danger of something going awry, then I tend to avoid it... so the slogan
    'If in doubt, leave it out' would probably be a good one to keep to.
    Thanks so much.
