Focusing on the sentiment

Week 10 already of the Less is More Challenge, and this time they would like to see one layer cards with the focus on the sentiment. Having just taken delivery of the brand new Teeny Weeny Meadow stamp set from Chocolate Baroque, I couldn't wait to start inking it up and soon found a suitable sentiment to go with a tree from the set.

The sentiment is from the Tall Trees set by Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque). One of the tall trees in the set has a mini counterpart in the Teeny Weeny Meadow set, and I thought I'd make another version of the card using that one. I can't decide which one I like best! Good challenge this week. I might be tempted to have another go at the theme.

It's been a great weekend. Yesterday Sally, her daughter Megan and I went to Sir Stampalot for another fantastic Blog Girl get-together. It was a brilliant day. I'll be back later to tell you all about it!

Two super cards Lynne, I think after looking at them both, that the second is my favourite...with the sentiment being central and the the tiny trees a lovely echo of the sentiment... it's just superb!

Hi Lynne,

I'm glad you all had a lovely day yesterday and look forward to seeing what you made.

As for these two cards, well I think they are both gorgeous and what a lovely way to use these little stamps. I think all of us on the DT have been surprised at how useful these stamps are. There is just so much you can do with them. I'd be hard pressed to choose a favourite from your two creations as I love them both.

Hugs

Two lovely cards and great sentiment. Liking the first one as i like the tree shape very much. Great to see brown/chocolate images as i usually stick to black :-)

Susan said...

Lynne, looks like you've got some great stamps there. I really like both cards...but I really like the second one...I love how you've centered the sentiment and the added the skinny trees!

Erica said...

Looks like the pendulum is gonna swing back & forth on these two. I'm going with Massofhair. It's the first one...the tree shape is what does it for moi.

With a sentiment as gorgeous as this you really don;t need anything else on a card. It;s wonderful. A brilliant take on the challenge; I keep my fingers crossed and hope you win. You deserve to win!
