Spring leaves

 A couple of one layer cards for Less is More - last minute as my nice new laptop is not behaving and I've had to dig out the geriatric one that happily still functions at its own pace (me too).  First up uses SU Simply Sketched on kraft with Inktense pencils to colour.  The stamp is Lily of the Valley and yes I know it is upside down!  As I like plants to be 'grounded', it didn't work to have it growing right ways up.  So in this case, it has become a trailing shrub.

My second card is all embossed.  The bird and branch are both Card-Io, some gel pen highlights the branches.  Sentiment is Visible Image.  Not so happy with this card, may try it again without the embossing.

I'm also entering CAS-ology's Foliage challenge.

  4. I love both of these kraft one layer cards, Anne! The first is elegant and timeless and the red elements on the second really pop. Great to see you at Less is More :)

  6. I adore kraft cards, and you have produced two fab examples highlighting its versatility! I love the Inktense colouring on your 'trailing shrub' (I would never have known, and ADORE that layout! ;-) I also love how the colours pop on your second card!
