Today is the last day of my vacation before I have to return to work. I'm rather sad about this because I love being home in the summer when the weather is hot, I can smell the flowers in my garden from my kitchen window, and I can laze around and do nothing if I want. Of course, vacations at my house are usually quite busy as I try to accomplish all the odd jobs that I never seem to do when I'm working, but I still managed to find time to stamp just about every day!
My card today features the Dynamic Duo colors of Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze. And since it's been a while since I participated in a challenge at Less is More, I tried my hand at their One Layer challenge incorporating the number three in one way or another. (I used three stamped images).
I did a little masking again. I stamped the flower from Everything Eleanor first, then created a mask for it. Then I stamped the Baja Breeze image and got the unfortunate "halo effect" around the flower. I created a mask for that image and stamped the flourish in Pink Pirouette. To take care of the halo effect, I took a Baja Breeze marker and carefully pounced it around the white space. A close inspection will reveal this, but from a distance it looks pretty good. And since whoever the recipient of this card is, I'm sure he (or more likely she) will not be so critical of the images as I am and won't notice this little goof!
It seems every time I visit someone's blog lately, all talk is about the heat. My neck of the woods has not been immune and the upcoming week is predicted to be hotter still. As I write this (Saturday night) the temperatures are hot and sticky and the only air moving is from my ceiling fans! I hope everyone stays safe until the weather cools down!
