It is another bank holiday weekend here in the UK so I am hoping that I can be productive in sorting out our overgrown garden - as long as it stays dry! However, before I get started on my chores I wanted to tell you about our challenge this week at Less is More. We want you to access your dark side as the theme is Shadow:
You can either use shadow stamping on your design or feature a shadow in some way. I have to admit that I found this one a bit challenging but after some head scratching, I came up with 2 cards:
When I thought about shadows, I thought of a light in a gloomy room and tried to create that look with some Mama Elephant stamps combined with distress inks in dark blues and warm yellows. I will link this up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where Anything Goes.
Secondly I made a card featuring a stamp from Clarity which I always think looks quite dreamy combined with a sentiment from Mama Elephant. The lady is watercoloured in distress inks and I shaded in a long shadow cast by the light behind her. Lots of splatters complete the look.
I will also link this card up at Addicted to Stamps who are looking for clean and simple designs.
I hope you like these two shadowy designs. I can't wait to see what you do with this week's challenge. Check out the rest of the inspiration from the DT over at Less is More too!
Thanks for stopping by, Sarah x
