This weeks challenge over at Less is More is Masculine.
I decided to use this stamp from Lili of the Valley called zooming along and stamped onto white card with Memento ink and coloured with Promarkers. I decided to try the "inside the box" technique that I saw Sue Wilson doing on C&C the other day. I frequently use the "outside the box" method but hadn't thought of doing it this way round. I took the nestie I wanted to use and positioned it on the card where I wanted the aperture. I then lightly pencilled around the inside of the die and cut out the part of the image which was inside this mark. I then positioned the die (cut side down) under the part of the image I had just cut out. This gives the impression of the car being within the window. I positioned some paper from my stash at the back of the window. Now I know the challenge is definitely less is more but it did look pretty plain at this stage so I ran the piece of card through my die cutting machine in a Creative Expressions embossing folder and then inked lighly over the raised area. The edge was cut using a Martha Steward punch. Sentiment is from a Stampin Up kit and cut out using Stampin Up punches.
Thanks to all for stopping by on this beautiful sunny spring day.
