I'm feeling very brave today. I caught a large frog in a box and took it to the lake, to prevent my two cats pursuing it round the garden. It was squeaking like a guinea pig, which is quite distressing to hear. The cats don't actually work as a team, for which I'm glad, otherwise we'd have even more half dead wildlife in the kitchen than we currently do. Butterflies are their latest craze, straight from the buddhlia into the house.
Anyway, you didn't come here to hear about that, you want to see a card. I hope you won't be disappointed having made you wait for a whole paragraph.
This week's Less is More challenge is a colour inspiration, some lovely autumny colours.
So here's my little offering, inspired by Lisa Addesa's many creations, but this one in particular. Lisa is such an inspired talented lady with so many new ideas, I have to check her blog every day, just in case I miss another gem.
I still love this Memory Box tree die. Cut in white, coloured with markers, then layered with about four more white trees for depth, then coloured the sides of the layers with the markers. If it sounds like going at it the long way round, you're right. Next time I'll cut the underlayers in the brown and just do the top layer in white and colour the sections. But hey why do something the easy way when you can make life hard for yourself.
I spent ages matching my pens to the colours in the picture, then my camera decided it knew best and made them all look slightly different.
My crafty friend Jennie is coming round tonight to plan a card project for my craft group in a coupleof weeks. Should be fun.
Have a great week. Bye.
