Flying by .....

The theme at Less is More this week is 'Newsprint', I had loads of ideas pop into my head for this challenge - you could be seeing some more later in the week!

This card uses stamps and dies from the Lawn Fawn Sunny Skies collection and the sentiment is from their Flying By stamp set.


I coloured the little birds with ProMarkers and the newsprint papers are from the My Mind's Eye Portobello Road collection

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More Week 195 - Newsprint
Brown Sugar Challenge 117 - Anything Goes
Daring Cardmakers Challenge – Sentimental
Sister Act Challenge 80 - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations Challenge 274 - Thinking of you

That's LOVELY! I've invested in a couple of Lawn Fawn dies myself lately. Can't wait to play with them. I love what you've done with this. Lx

You've been a busy bee while I was away on holiday, such a wide range of styles and themes too! I just recently got some Lawn Fawn products myself. Love them, and love what you've created here with yours. The clouds look super mounted on foam and as negative die cuts, great combo for dimension!
