Less is More " Off Centre "

This is my second attempt at a Less is More challenge. Last weeks being acetate and a toughie I thought that this weeks challenge being  “off centre” would be a doddle ! No doddle here though ! As a newie to these challenges but a follower from afar I have come to realise that it is a lot more difficult than it looks. I admire all of you wonderfully talented ladies who week after week pick up the gauntlet and create such amazing pieces of art , because for me that’s what they are.

I would also like to thank everyone who took time to comment on my first entry last week for LIM challenge acetate I was overwhelmed by your lovely warm welcome and your comments all of which where truly appreciated.

Even though my card may seem simple it has taken me hours to try to get the right layout and the correct proportion of the images,  not to mention the sihouttes the tricky little devils ! Then again you all know that because your here once again with your amazing Less is More masterpieces.

I do hope I am off centre enough and if I’m not please let me know.

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter

  3. Hi Marie, I'm an admirer-from-afar of these Less Is More cards as I havent had a go myself yet, but I always think they look deceptively simply, so I'm not surprised to read that it took you hours of planning first. Such a challenge to get the placements and proportions just right, but you managed it….I love the first card in particular. Really great! coB

  4. Both fabulous cards, so stylish :o) I know what you mean – I always spend ages thinking, planning, shuffling through my stamps… takes longer to decide what to make than it does to actually make it! Lisa x

  7. Hi Marie, they are both such elegant cards! As far as I am concerned you've got it right. I thought at first this challenge was easy, I'm beginning to wonder now! Sarah

  8. dearest Marie,Wonderful cards. The elephants are especially dear. Dont know if I could do "Less is more", you see I might go thru sparkle withdrawl. LOL. Have a beautiful Easter with family and friends, take care, gerri

  9. Hi MArieBoth cards are FAB, Id say the elephant one is perfect placement, as it is just right for off centre, rather than just at the sideFAB!Thanks so muchmandiDiva LIM

  10. Both are perfect cards…..the images are great….you are becoming a master of the less is more challenge….can't wait to see what you create next week!!

  11. I've been making cards for a couple of years now, and I still struggle each week to design something that I'm happy with! I LOVE your silhouettes…are those stamped or cut out? I can't stamp silhouettes in black without it turning out a bit speckled because the stamp won't hold a solid layer of ink….I just quit trying to do them!

  12. Both fantastic cards an i love them both for different reasons. Your elephants are just so darn cute but your sentiment and you fab couple really made me smile.Hope you enjoyed your Easter and didn't work too hard:-)

  13. Both beautiful Marie, I can appreciate that they must have taken ages to plan and to get just right (but you certainly have). Your elephant card is stunning x

  17. Really fab cards, very striking and perfectly Clean and Simple! CAS/LIM cards seem deceptively easy but you're right, there's lots to consider. You did a fab job – I love the rounded corner detail!

  18. Two fab cards Marie. The silhouettes are really effective. Sue.xp.s. I feel the same about my Silhouette machine – couldn't live without it.lol

  19. Oh Marie – I love both of these – they are both perfectly awesome!!! I wholeheartedly agree the Clean and Simple is not easy – for me CAS stands for Complicated and Stressful!!hugsHeather xx
