The musical theme of the Fan Club gallery at Splitcoaststampers this month inspired me to create these two cards for the More-is-More challenge. If you're not familiar, More-is-More is a challenge where you make a card with a simplified version, and then make another one that is kicked up a notch! I used the January 2011 Sketch for You to Try as the layout for both of my cards. I used the What's Cooking ala' modes stamp from My Favorite Things, and used Seaside designer paper from October Afternoon, and a cooking-themed twill ribbon from Creative Impressions.
For the "lesser" version here, I kept the layers to a minimum, and didn't get too carried away with the Copic coloring. Nice and simple, but still pretty cute!Then, for the "more" version I added a layer with the red card base, paper-pieced the apron, stepped it up with the coloring, added machine stitching, a die-cut border using the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-Namics, and added a button to the sentiment circle.
Here they are together, for comparison!
Hope you like them! Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Monday!
