Our Creative Corner-Limited Supply Challenge

This week's hostess, Kim Teasdale, has created another fabulous challenge… she has challenged us to a Limited Supplies Challenge. Here are the rules: You may use any paper including designer papers but are only able to use a maximum of 3 layers (including your stamped image), 1 type of embellishment (buttons or brads or ribbon, etc), any stamps that you like and sentiments are optional.

This was a challenge. Only ONE embellishment!!!! lol...... I had to think about which one to choose, that would give me the most Bang for my Buck. I decided that I had better start with a Patterned Card Base and Dug out these We R Memory Keepers Kitchen Cards, that way, I would feel as if I had a little texture there!

I stamped the image from the Pink Cat Studio, Lily and Tweet Set and coloured with Copics, sponging over the image with Creamy Caramel Ink after. The sentiment is a SU! Rub on. Multi Layers of Riding Hood Red Ribbon which has a little ivory trim made me feel like I had a little more on my card. I had an additional layer behind the main image, but actually preferred the look of the two layers only.............hmmmm I wonder if I get a prize for really limiting myself here...................hehe.........just kidding!!!

I have developed a wee obsession with my white Gel Pen............. I just find that it seems to bring a little more life to the images!!!!

Head on over to Our Creative Corner to view the beautiful creations our talented Design Team have dished up this week.

Have a wonderful Saturday and if you haven't been to my blog in the last several days, or ever before, the two previous posts offer Blog Candy if you leave a comment!
