Over at Less is More, the challenge this week is a one layer card with the sentiment as the focal point.
As I own a single set of sentiment stamps (Christmas ones - and I didn't feel like making a Christmas card!) I decided it was time to try out some hand lettering. I can only get better, right? That's a comforting thought to hold on to.
My first effort (oh no! There may be more!) was inspired by some amazing "scribble lettering" I saw on Pinterest from a blog post on the 'Lisa Letters' blog. I wanted to do something like this but add in some doodle fill like the awesome Joanne Fink's Zenspiration Monograms.
I used a Sakura Pigma Micron 01 black pen for the lettering, then added a doodle and a scribble border, and finally put in some colour with Pan Pastels in Diarylide Yellow and Bright Yellow Green Shade. Guess I'm still feeling spring-like! The colour is actually brighter and extends out further in real life, but after literally 38 attempts to get a decent photo with everything in focus and accurate colour... I'm quitting. This is the best of a bad bunch, and you'll just have to imagine that sunny goodness!
Thanks for stopping by, and remember you can play along each week with the Less is More challenges right here.
