But today is my turn for a Friday Flourishes Focus and it's a fun one today...I've asked Jami Sibley to join me on the Flourishes Blog to showcase the More is More challenge ...Jami was the originator of the challenge and it was so fun and a blessing to have her guest stamping with me.
Here are my More is More Creations pair....
It was so fun to use the Berry Sweet set again and color it in two different styles....
On this "less" version I went with a very Clean and Simple classic style. I gave the berries and leaves color by stamping directly with my Ranger Distress ink pads (Barn Door and Forest Moss), I used the larger leaves and berries in the set and my Eclipse tape to mask so I could form a berry bunch. Then I used my waterbrush to slightly soften the colors directly from stamping onto the paper and then added a little distress in that I had smooshed onto an acrylic block to add in some more soft watercoloring. I really love the softer effect. Accents and the lines are really simple on this card.
Designer paper is actually from an old SU Christmas pack.
Now here is the "more"version.
Again I've masked and stamped the larger leaves and berries but this time in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it all in with Copic Markers.
I've added some layering to the main image, and then changed some of the shape to the under layers, adding scalloping etc. I like the country feel to this card. I've doubled up on the ribbon using Satin and Crochet and some extra 1/2 pearls, and I also added dp to the sentiment layer, and I rounded the bottom of the card too on this version.
It's always fun to do More is More, be sure to check out what Jami did on the FLLC Blog and on her blog aptly titled ....More is More :)
Thanks for dropping in again and I look forward to catching up with you soon, after bed, a shower and I'm sure a lot of laundry. I know I'll have lots to share with you!
