It's one-layer week at Less is More where we are asked to include three of something, be it colours, stamps, words, the number... It sounds so simple but it's been one of those LiM weeks where I get through lots of card trying to get it to look right.
In the end, this is what I made:
Three balloons and three birds from me. To begin with I made a mask so I was only working in the centre of the card. I made the sky by cutting a rough sort of cloud shape out of a post-it note and then dabbing on a bit of Bashful Blue, moving the post-it note around my sky. I then inked the bottom with a bit of Wild Wasabi, stamping in some grasses from my Autumn Days set.
The balloons were each coloured and stamped, and I masked each one before stamping in the baskets as it didn't look right with the whole basket showing. Three useful little birds from Up, Up & Away finished off the panel. For a finishing touch, I scored a frame around the scene using my Simply Scored board.
Stamps: Up, Up & Away, Autumn Days
Ink: Bashful Blue, Wild Wasabi, Always Artichoke, Basic Black, Real Red, marker pens in Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point
Card: Whisper White
Other: stamp-a-ma-jig, sponge daubers, Simply Scored board, post-it notes (and lots of them!)
I'm glad yesterday's scary cat photo made you laugh! Today's picture is a tad more philosophical:
