Less is more no.2

Another attempt as less is more... that bow took for ever... I'm no good at bows esp small ones :))

One or two people commented on the Penny Black stamp I used in yesterdays card.
I thought you might like to see it in full.

I agree that the swirls on yesterdays card would be better with the flat side facing the image,  
Off to do some snooping and commenting :)

Love the birdcage card and thanks for showing us the whole PB stamp (I might just need that one). I agree that it looked better with part of it cut off as in yesterday's post.

'Birdcage' is a beautiful card.

The birdcage is adorable ;-) I'm hopeless with bows too - have you tried a bow easy? It revolutionised bow making for me and its not expensive - I got mine from here http://www.quixoticpaperie.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=157&products_id=1161 You can make any size bow, single, double just by wrapping around the different "legs"

Hi Suzi
love the bird cage card, those layouts for the other look FB
Have to say the decorative swirls look much better that way round
Thanks for trying them again

Hi Suzi great, card today I bought those bird stamps as soon as I saw them. They're lovely , I like the delicate colouring on the cage. Really pretty. The bow makers are very good, and easy to use if you struggle with ribbon. Hugs x ChrisB

Susan said...

You need to use a bowmaker Sue... perfect bows every time!
Thanks for your second attempt... both the new card and the revised first one look great. I DO prefer the swirls facing outwards!
See you next time!
