WOYWW 115 – Less is More

Het was weer een erg drukke week met veel knutselen, tuinieren en bezoekjes aan mijn vriendinnen in het oosten des lands. En ineens is het woensdag en o jee.... wat wil ik laten zien? Gelukkig vertelde een vriendin mij over de "Less is More" challenge... "De perfecte plek en challenge om mijn one layer cards te laten zien", zei ze. En na een bezoekje aan hun website te hebben gebracht kan ik zeggen dat ze helemaal gelijk heeft.

It was a very busy week, with lots of crafting, gardening and visits to my good friends in the Eastern part of the Netherlands. But then it's Wednesday again and oh no… what do I want to show you? Happily my friend told me about the “Less is More” challenge... “The perfect place and challenge to share my one layer cards”, she said. So I went to their website and found out she’s right.

Maar voordat ik jullie mijn bijdrage aan deze challenge laat zien, eerst een blik op mijn bureaublad van vandaag. En helaas... er is niet zoveel op te zien. Ik heb net mijn one layer cards af en mijn werkplek opgeruimd. Iets wat ik altijd doe nadat ik een project heb afgerond.

But before I show you my entry for this challenge, first a glimpse of my work desk today. And there’s not much to see on it. I had just finished my one layer card and cleaned up my desk, as I usually do when I’ve finished a project.

En hier is mijn bijdrage aan de "Less is More"challenge. Ik hoef waarschijnlijk niet te vertellen dat ingezonden kaarten 'clean and simple' moeten zijn. Daarnaast moet er ook een witte ruimte op te vinden zijn, waarop helemaal niets te vinden is. Verder moet het een one layer card zijn en deze keer moet er ook inkt op worden gebruikt.

Alright then… here is my entry for the “Less is More” challenge. I don’t have to tell you that your card has to be clean and simple and it must have an area of ‘white space’ with nothing in it at all. It also has to be a one layer card and you must use ink.

Mijn kaart is gemaakt met drie kleuren Distress Inkt (Antique Linen, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade) die ik in een vierkant heb gesponsd. Na het aanbrengen van deze kleuren heb ik, heel licht, een tekst gestempeld met de donkerste kleur die ik al had gebruikt. De vogels zijn met Versafine Onyx Black gestempeld. Tot slot heb ik de tekst 'To You' gebruikt  because I'm wanting to fly 'To You' ...my friend.

My card is made with three colours Distress Ink (Antique Linen, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade) which I sponged with in a square. When the colouring was finished, I stamped some script with the darkest colour I had already used, but softened the colour by first stamping on scap paper and then stamping on my card without re-inking. The birds are stamped with Versafine Onyx Black. Finally I added the text `To You` because I'm wanting to fly 'To You' ...my friend.

Dit is dus mijn bijdrage voor de "Less is More"challenge van deze week.
En wil je nog meer rondsnuffelen op andere werkbladen deze woensdag... neem dan eens een kijkje op de website van Julia door deze WOYWW link te volgen.
