On Tuesday we went to visit our daughter in Bath and to babysit Daisy for a while, whilst our daughter did some interviews. It turned into something a little more complex! There was a call from the Nursery to say that Seb was not well and had been sick so I went to pick him up and take him home.
Having been ill, the Nursery would not allow him back for 48 hours after symptoms had subsided and Libby needed to go to work the next day. The result was that we decided to bring both children back home here with us for a couple of nights. It's lovely having them, but oh so tiring!
The door to my craft room remained shut tight for that time, I don't need a fourteen month old getting in there and creating havoc, however when Seb was napping Daisy enjoyed making some cards for her mummy and daddy!
The challenge at "Less is More" this week is to use 3 shades of green, I quite enjoyed messing around with this one. This has a gently ink dusted background using Pear Pizzazz and River Rock inks, overstamped with an Inkylicious and an Indigo Blu stamp using Pear Pizzaz ink The different shades were achieved by using the different techniques... dusting and stamping. The butterfly was inked and then twinkled with Glamour Dust. The image has been popped up on dimensional pads.
This Penny Black stamp was inked with SU Pear Pizzazz ink and then shaded with SU Marker Pens in Old Olive and Always Artichoke to add definition to the stamped image.
Details of this one are on the "Less is More" Blog. It utilises the fab Eucalyptus leaf stamp which I picked up for less than a £1 at the NEC.
It has fabulous detail on it and by using different shades of ink, it enhances the effect of the texture!
The last one for this week has three Hero Arts Apples in one of my favourite layouts!
Once more, details of colours used are on the LIM blog.
Do join our challenge this week, I'm sure there are lots of ways to use three shades of green!
