Less is More 4

Morning All
Trust you are all well this gorgeous sunny morning it is in Gib....
My friend Debbie and I went to see " Kings Speech" last night really enjoyed...and tonight we are going to see " Black Swan".....
I was so excited to see what the Challenge was for this week....but was a bit uninspired..."Three Square" as i don`t find these Simple cards easy...but i think i will get there in time...
I would like to Thank Everyone for there lovely Comments...I am amazed how many i have received...but i love to get them...
For this card i have used an old Stampscape Stamp..i did a workshop using these stamps...a couple of years ago...
I coloured some Glossy card with D.Inks Broken China and Peeled Paint..then stamped image with Stazon...cut into Three pieces..Punched Spiral border from SU.To make it look like a Photo Strip...Message... Lindsay Mason ...
I am pleased with the outcome... so i look forward to your lovely Comments
Enjoy your Sunday and Happy Crafting....

Morning Sylvie! Hope you enjoyed The Kings Speech. Think you are brave to see The Black Swan - it looks quite a tough film! Let me know how it is. Loving your card hun, the photo strip idea is inspired and the stamps are just fabulous - it looks fantastic. Hugs Sxx


I think it's stunning Sylvie!
Simply wonderful! I honestly don't think that you can possibly say that you'll 'get there' with CAS cards, you've decidedly arrived!

Great card! Looks like you've nailed the CAS style - I agree it can be really challenging, though but this challenge is great for inspiration.

This is stunning, I love the way you have cut them into 3 squares and mounted them in a strip. Haven't done mine yet finding inspiration difficult.

Carole of Brum

Sylvie, you make these Less Is More cards look effortless! Really love this one, you seem to have a knack with them even if you don't find them easy. I havent been brave enough to try one yet, but i keep thinking of your cards and am feeling the beginnings of inspiration to try myself so you never know! Looks like you have glorious weather there right now - I am listening to the rain outside so I hope you feel guilty now, hee hee, CoB


Sylvie, I LOVE this!!! I have this stamp and never thought to use it that way!!! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

I really like the triptych effect you've achieved on this card. The colouring is fabulous, and the backing mount brilliant. I think you've nailed CAS!!
