Less is More #334


This week at Less is More we have a sketch challenge for you.  I do find sketches well, challenging so this was a tough one for me!

Here is the sketch:

When I looked at the sketch I saw a river running across the card so that is what I went with....

I stencilled a wave pattern on the card base and popped up white card on either side which was hand cut in to a wavy line.  The cute otter and baby are from MFT and are left over from the recent kit that Shona sent over for Honey I Shrunk the Kit.  The sentiment is from Uniko.

I then decided to try making a similar design as a one later card so I masked a wavy line, stamped and masked the fish (from Mama Elephant) and stencilled in the water.  I added some white highlights to the fish and added a sentiment from Altenew.
I hope that you like how I used the sketch for my designs this week.  The rest of the DT have other inspiration to share with you over at Less is More.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by,

  7. That stencil is perfect for your water themed cards and works brilliantly with the sketch. Love the use of the otters for a baby card, and complementary colours on your second card are great, the fish really pop xx
