Less is More #233

Morning friends we are back around to Saturday and, in my case,
 the start of the summer holidays as schools are out!

It also marks the start of a new kitchen revamp on Monday! 
Excited but not looking forward to camping out whilst it takes place!
Take-away menus lined up and lots of meals out booked!

Anyway enough of that we've a super sizzling summer challenge
for you today at Less is More and it's theme week

'Life's a Beach!'

So slap on that sun lotion, grab your shades and 
head off to the .... craftroom! Here's my examples and 
don't forget to check out the other DT cards over on the LIM blog!

Card Recipe:
Lawn Fawn: Life is Good - sentiment and crabs, these are
coloured using Stabilo pens then covered with glossy accents 
The 'sea' is coloured with distress inks onto watercolour card
then simply torn to make the 'froth' look at the edge of the water.

My next card uses the same set from Lawn Fawn with my 
'white space' being a wide border around the centre images.

Card Recipe:
Lawn Fawn: Life is Good
My Favourite Things: Sun Ray stencil
Clearly Besotted: sentiment from Dandelion Dreams
Doodlebug DP for the flip flop and glossy accents 
for added detail to the little scene and crab

I hope this inspires you to craft away and have some fun.
Thanks as always for stopping by and I'll be back in an hour
with the latest challenge details for Addicted to CAS
