Less Is More Week 12 - Recipe 'off centre'

Well, Lady LIM Chrissie and LIM Diva Mandi, have come up with the recipe of 'off centre' for cards this week - cards with little or no symmetry but perfect balance - Now there's a challenge!
I normally do 'off centre' but not deliberately. Anyway this week I chose a digi image from Digital Two for Tuesday, which was a cottage image, but I have cropped it down, and cropped out the watering can and made it slightly bigger for the focus of this card. I watercoloured with my dye-based Big and Juicy Spice and Sunset pads. Sentiment is computer generated. May try another card this week. I am waiting for a new stamp to play with :-)

Less is More - Challenge 10

Thanks to Mandi for telling me how to correct my photos!

Over at Less is More this week, the challenge is to use a sentiment as a focal point on a card. I came up with this - eventually. Not sure whether the rose red heart detracts from the sentiment, but I don't think the eyes dance around the card as the sentiment is in line with it. This is the third attempt and I'm sticking with it *smile*. The hearts are stamps from Crafters Companion 'Love' set 1, and the sentiment is a new design by Claritystamp. Some wonderful and creative cards by the LIMettes. Well done everyone! x

Flowers for April

This card is for several challenges. I had started to colour this image from Bugaboo (Friday Freebies - Sceneit) and saw the challenge for Daring Cardmakers which was daisy and sweetpeas for April - just the job. Over at Less is More the challenge is 'a touch of red' - ooh, ladybirds. At St. Luke's Charity Card Challenge - their first - and a worthwhile cause so please take a look - it is 'flowers'. An ideal digi stamp! This card will be packaged up and sent to the charity along with another card. Happy Crafting! x
