Less is More week 317 - sketch challenge


Hi LIMettes! Happy Saturday. Today is the start of a new clean and simple card making challenge with Less is More. This week, it's a sketch challenge.
Our birthday month sponsor for this, the final, week of our celebrations is Bev at Uniko - thank you Bev!




Here's the sketch to work from:


You can flip it, rotate it etc. I decided to make it a mirror image, do a portrait instead of landscape card, and change the angle of the lines!


The lines became falling rain, represented by a die from Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders. I popped a paper pieced umbrella over the rain, using My Favorite Things Layered Umbrella, various colours of card and floral paper.

The sentiment is from Neat & Tangled Square Thoughts.

Do head over to the blog to see the other inspiration cards from the rest of the DT, and thanks for stopping by :)

  4. Your interpretation of the sketch is awesome Esther! Such a creative take on it and those stitched borders make a perfect representation of falling rain. Ha!

  5. Oh I would just love an umbrella in that pretty floral design too ... I'd get much more use out of it than Sharon too!!! LOL! I love the inspired way you've used the sketch too and the stitched border dies make a brilliant eye-catching element for the stripes in the sketch. Great idea and have a fun week. x

    1. Thank you Marie :) I only have one rather boring black umbrella IRL so maybe this is my nudge to get something more exciting!
