|This is my entry to the Less is More #206.|
I had a little time to colour with my daughter today, I made this card and my daughter coloured a card for her friend's birthday. She was quite a lot of quicker in colouring though! :) I wanted to participate to Less is More #206 where is going on a one-layer week with a theme of New Beginnings. My dear friend is going to be starting in a new job in a few weeks. She doesn't enjoy her work in her current one so I wanted to make a card to give her a little smile and strength or "sisu" as we call it in Finnish to keep going these few days she still have left in her old job. Inside of this card there is text "Blue skies are ahead" Hopefully she will enjoy her new job.
I started this card by masking off the "uncoloured area" with post-it notes. Then I stamped all the images with black pigment ink. The branch and background trees are from Purple Onion Designs and balloons, the dog and the sentiment are from stamp set called Flying High by Tiddly Inks. I also drew the road and I coloured all images with Derwent Coloursoft pencils. Then, I masked off the coloured part of the card and stamped the rest of the branch and the bakcground hills and trees with grey ink. At the top of the card, one of the balloons was cut off from the backside of the card to give some interest to the card. The sentiment inside of the card is from a set called Blue skies by Lawn Fawn.

Hopefully you like it and I hope it will give a smile for my friend. Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!
