Hi everyone and Happy New Year. I am very, very excited today because it's my first post as a new Designer for the team at Less Is More
! Woo hoo, girls, thank you for the opportunity.
Well! This challenge is right up my alley. I love making cards using this theme. You may know already that I love using Brushos. Spritzing them with water then smooshing them is one of my favourite techniques.
I have a number of cards showing you different ways to interpret water into your Clean and Simple card making.
This was created by using a piece of watercolour paper that I had smooshed with Turquoise Brusho, I die cut the sentiment to make a bold colour pop on my black and white card.
I decided to create a little island scene to represent water on this card. My water background was created by using Distress Ink and then flicking water over it. I stamped and die cut all my little images and coloured them in with pencils (I also live on an island so this is the perfect card for me).
When you go to the water/coast who is there trying to steal your hot chips? Seagulls of course!
(thank you to Anita for sending me this stamp set, I love it!)
I created a wave like effect using a new border die. I had some leftover paint after doing an Acrylic pour and smooshed it up with yupo paper.
As you can see, there are plenty of ways to interpret our theme for this challenge. The girls will have plenty more over at the challenge blog for you to see. We also have a wonderful Guest Designer joining us - Viv (Daizy-Mae's Crafty Blog
