Cards, Challenges

Less is More-A real object challenge.

To find out more about this challenge, click here.

I walked around the house trying to find a real object for this challenge, I didn’t find anything that really stood out.  I knew I had some old single earrings that I had lost the mates to so I decided to check my jewelry boxes.  I found a rose earring, a tiki pendant and a hair pin (bee) and decided to use the hairpin.

I had also gone through some wood stamps that I bought last year on ebay when I first started making cards, there was a cute Penny Black stamp called “Lovin Flowers” and decided it would be perfect for the bee hairpin.  I stamped on Linen cardstock from Papers and More with SSS Barely Beige ink, colored the image with Prismacolor pencils.  I also used a part of a Gina K sentiment for the “Smile” on the sign.

What a fun challenge, now I am going to challenge myself to use the other items I found.
