Less is More

I am so excited about the new Less is More challenge blog.     Mandi ,  a teamie of mine at TPC, is one of the co-creators and her clean and simple cards are amazing.   Their first challenge is ' Black, White and Pink' and, if you struggle with this type of card ( like I do ), they have included some great tips to help you out.


 I think CAS cards need a different type of image to what I usually use, so I had to have a rummage for something suitable. I came up with this Tiddly Inks digi and when I saw that he was called  'wild thing', the song title just popped into my head. Now, I need it to pop back out again, 'cos it's driving me crazy!!
I was going to leave the image black and white, but in the end, I couldn't help using some shades of grey. The heart is pink shimmer mist.
The little text heart was crying out to me for the same glitter treatment, but I managed to stop myself!! lol**


Challenges I would like to enter.
Less is More - Black and White, and Pink          
Stamp Something - Use a DIGI
Stampin' for the Weekend - St Valentine's Day
Secret Crafter - Valentine
