Less is More #223

Morning all, are you ready for another

One Layer Card week at Less is More
with a 'Water' theme this time ...
it doesn't seem 5 minutes since we were one layer splattering does it?

Anyway I've gone with 2 pretty obvious examples
using 'sea' images but there's plenty of other ways to interpret it.

My first card is a super sneaky preview of the
Nautical Treasures set which will be released and available
to purchase from Uniko Studio on Monday.

As well as the Uniko set I've teamed it with a sun ray stencil from 
My Favourite Things, inked in Spiced Marmalade and Scattered Straw.

A happy little mistake occurred when I heat embossed my sailing boat
as the distress ink from the sun was still damp and picked up some of the 
clear powder! You perhaps can't see it in the picture but it added a delicious
glossy shine to my sun which I rather like!
My 'ocean' is inked with Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass.

Along with the rest of the Uniko Design Team
I'll be back a little later with another card using this set
so I hope you'll join me then.

My next card uses another sneaky little stamp set purchased
from the NEC a few weeks ago 

Card Recipe:
Lawn Fawn: Whale You Be Mine
Paper Smooches: Botanicals 2
Clearly Besotted: Mr & Mrs (sentiment)
The 'ocean' is inked up with the same colours as above but this time
spritzed with perfect pearls and water then heat set very quickly.

Ok it's your turn now and I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Thanks for stopping by and I do hope you'll pop back later
to see my second card using the Nautical set from Uniko Studio.

Bye for now
