Less is More "Lucky Dip"

Picture Inspiration at LIM
here's mine

the idea for this card came from a lovely Cubby Hole friend, Christine C who gave me the most delightful card for my birthday. Christine used a template to make a beautiful, subtle background for a stamped image. I thought I'd have a go at the same type of effect...mmm I was a bit too heavy handed with the ink, nothing subtle about it! So I added more ink and turned into the focal point! i rather like it  :o)

I added, glitter,buttons and ribbon to give it some texture. I painted darker bits of pink ink to add interest to the stippled flower template.

Lots of shadows on the pics... taken outside in the sun!.
 Enjoy the rest of theSunday.
take care xx suzi b xx

You are on a roll Sue! I think the inking through the template has given a lovely soft effect and I like the added glitter too. Vicky x
