Less is More week 326 - Shadow
Hi LIMettes! We've got a new clean and simple card making challenge at Less is More. This week we'd like you to make cards featuring a shadow or shadows.
Jane of Purple Jet Loves Crafts is our super guest designer this week so do pop over to her blog and leave her some comment love!
I decided to make two cards using shadow stamping, where the same image is repeated in layers of light to dark coloured ink to create the illusion of depth.
My first card uses Morning Frost, Evening Ghost and Moon Rock from the Altenew Warm Gray Ink Cubes mini set. I repeatedly stamped the three solid flower layers from Altenew Extra Special. I then die cut the word "hugs" using My Favorite Things Big Hugs Dienamic and layered the letters up on 4 base layers of black card to create a second shadow effect.
My second card uses the same technique and stamp, but this time I used Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick (second generation stamping for the middle layer) to create a warmer feel.
I die cut Altenew Happy and stacked it up on a layer of fun foam for dimension and shadow, and added "birthday" underneath from Mama Elephant Labeled Messages.
So there you have it: one technique, two cards, four shadows! Thanks for stopping by, and I'm looking forward to seeing your makes for this challenge :)
