Less is More Week 19 - CAS One layer card

Has a week gone by already?!... The challenge over at the Less is More blog is ~ In the Frame ~ and to have a one layer card. We can be as inventive as we like and some of the cards already submitted are just fabulous!.. all very inspiring to me.

For this challenge I have made two cards... my favourite is this card,

I've had this UM stamp for at least 10 years - swapped from a friend for craft items!.. I think we are all digging out our old stamps for something new to do.. and this one will be one I will be stamping again and again as it is perfect for CAS cards. I coloured it using very pale shades of promarker pens and covered the wings with some clear 'oil on water effect' foil. Here's some close ups of those wings:


For the second card I did quite a bit of masking. The vase was created using a vase shape hole cut out of paper and then inking and stamping the pattern using a clear stamp from the Anna Griffin lace set, the tablecloth is also from the same AG lace set.
The bird is from a free Chritmas set from the Docrafts magazine...it's a Robin Lol!... and the birdcage is from the Papermania set that is raising money for Cancer this year. I finished it by adding the bow with black pen and drawing the frame. I'm not sure I like this one but it took so long to do, it seems a shame not to share my efforts - good or bad... Lol..

Thanks for visiting.... see you soon.
