Less is More #417 Out of Focus

Hello lovely ladies, I do hope you are all well during these difficult times and crafting without guilt !

Thought I would play along with Less is More who have a very interesting challenge



I used a design from Silhouette studio and printed the butterfly line image onto acetate. I cut out the butterfly image from card and placed the line image in the negative space. Then using another piece of acetate I dabbled with alcohol inks I made tons of different designs or splodges as they should be called until I found one that I liked and placed it behind the the first piece of acetate . I really love playing with alcohol inks and find it very therapeutic and addictive, needless to say I have ton of acetate for future projects. I then mounted it onto card and added crystal drops which I later regretted as less really is more !!!

Do pop over and see the wonderful creations at Less is More once again the DT has created some beautiful cards to inspire us.


Take care
