Less Is More #42

I've had a great weekend and both of the sales I did went really well, so I am chuffed.  Shifted plenty of covered post-it notes and notebooks in various sizes, as well as lots of jewellery.  But, would you believe it, not a single calendar!!!

I've been back to making today and have finished a card for Less Is More challenge #42, silhouettes.
I've inked an oval in Ripe Persimmon, Wild Honey and Pumice Stone Distress Inks, directly onto a card through a paper mask.  Then stamped the Penny Black stamp 'to follow the star' in black before removing the mask.  The stamp doesn't actually have a star on it, so I added one from a set that came free with a magazine.  The greeting is from a different free set.

I'd also like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Allsorts #130 - One layer card
The Craft Garden - Christmas, no red or green
Lothian Crafts #20 - Christmas

That's a lovely card and I love the colours. Well done, you re the sales - brilliant! Just goes to show that the hard work does pay off. Shame about the calendars, but on the plus side, you have a lot of ready made Christmas gifts/cards x

Hi Kate, I love all the detail concentrated in your inked oval, with all the lovely white space around it. The colour really glows too. Well done on the sales at the weekend! Isn't it funny how every sale is different - you never can predict what will go and what won't!
