Less Is More Challenge 17


Posted by PicasaBlogger is still acting weird now and then IMO, but it can't stop me from accepting the LIM challenge.
At first, I just stared at the sketch, then looked lovingly at Chrissie's design. Seems her R&R has given her lots of good mojo to work with.

At 3AM, I rummaged through my stamps and found this one. Yikes, this one had never seen ink! Had to fix that, huh? I paired it with a little paw print which is actually a bear one from a long ago retired SU set called Button Bear. I sparkled the paw up with "at you Spica" pens, but it's not showing up at all. To frame my sentiment and paw print in a necessary box, I used a square Nestabilitie with the dry embossing imprint techniques, where you don't have an actual layer, but get the effect of one. I'm sure there's a concise name here, but it eludes me for now. The smell of pancakes and bacon cooked by my SIL (yes, he can cook) is disturbing my thought process.

So, have fun with the challenge. I've a feeling we may just hit the elusive 400 mark, since this is a 3 day weekend here in the USA, giving stampers a bit more time to play.

Hugs & Blessings,
Erica
