Good morning from sunny Buckingham where I woke up early and thought I'd nip in a bit of crafting before my presence is required! It's one layer card week at Less is More and the theme is Wings - the perfect opportunity to give my new Papaya Collage butterfly a chance to shine I thought! I used a great sketch from a brand new clean and simple challenge called CAS(E) This Sketch too. Come and see:
It was fun to make the background: I stuck a post it note to a piece of scrap card stock and cut five circles in a row with a circle punch. When the punched post it note was peeled away from the card stock it made a mask for me to sponge ink into and over-stamp with some tiny flowers from my Confetti backgrounds set.
Here's the sketch I used. It's lovely to see new CAS challenges turning up in Blogland and I'm sure you'll recognise lots of familiar names on the DT of this one!
While I had everything out, I thought I'd make another one layer card with an oval masked inked background...
... but I got not so much of an ink smudge on it but a whole bunch of ink smeared all over the back! So I cut this bit out and pierced the edges before mounting onto a separate card base - nothing gets wasted in the Crafting Square Metre!
Here's what you'll need for these cards

Ink: More Mustard, Tangerine Tango, Marina Mist, Midnight Muse, Cajun Craze

We were in Somerset yesterday visiting my father and before we went I inspected the troops to make sure they were looking respectable. "Your hair looks nice," I said to my youngest son. "Thanks!" he said. "I styled it yesterday." When I looked surprised he added: "By accident!" We all burst out laughing. "Did you trip up and fall on the hairbrush?" suggested my daughter.
Thank you for visiting me today - I think this is going to be a popular LiM week and I can't wait to see the variety of things with wings in the gallery! See you soon,
