Less Is More challenge week 285 Theme Repeat, Repeat, Repeat

Hi friends,

I'm heading to the Less Is More challenge. The divas are asking us to repeat, repeat and repeat some more. My family would rather I stop repeating myself, but that's another story for another day. So, I got busy and created this. I own many pairs of glasses, so that I can always have a pair at hand, so I thought the theme quite appropriate.

I got out several  stamp sets that had eyeglasses in them and the little Kawai smiley face for the images. I sponged a home-made stencil with some distress inks and stamped the sentiment in Memento sky blue. I used watercolor paper and stamped in Simon Says Stamp hybrid black ink. Then I used a black base.

And then because this was such a fun challenge, I made this one too. This card is specifically for Time Out Challenges No. 61, Inspired by Words. I had this block stamp of a single crayon and then I added a sentiment, I was fortunate to find that's a perfect match for it. The MISTI tool was invaluable to stamping the individual colored crayons onto a one-layer card.



There are a few days to play along with this challenge, so get a move on it.

Blessings,
Erica
