Less is More note and others.

Hello blog pals .Hope you are enjoying your day ,whatever you are up to . Welcome to my room . Thanks for calling in to browse and I hope that you let me know where you are so that I can return the courtesy .
Fistly I'd like to share my entry into Less is More challenge .

MONOCHROME. And  I quote...
Encarta definition
mon·o·chrome [ mónnə krm ]
1. in shades of one color: using or displaying only shades of one color or black and white.
You may choose any colour you wish, but please keep all the shades you use within your chosen spectrum.

My card is of Glossy White , while image , from Asian Artistry, and sentiment , stampendous are  inked in Basic Black . I used a blender pen to drag colour from edge of bird to colour body . I think it looks brownish in photo but IRL it is black . I created the larger  image by overlapping two images in the set.
Please stay with me as I would love for you to see the other two cards we did in our workshop this morning .

                                               Rose Red, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink.
                                                DSP, Lap of Luxury.
                                                 Faces from unknown set ...[Sandy 's help needed there in her comment ]
                                                      Sentiment , Well Scripted.
                                                Inks Basic Black , Basic Grey .
                                                    Circle Punches , Label 18, Spellbinders.

This one was fun to make with Pacific Point card , Sahara Sand, Whisper White and DSP , Celebrations. This is the packet I want to see how many cards I could  from it. Hard to tell cause I have used small pieces like the striped layer here on 5 cards .  The best I can say  after using this pkt in  two workshops now , is LOTS ..
WOW this is the best post I have done for a while .I think that it is because I am still on a high from the wonderful card morning with 3 fabulous friends . Thanks girls . 
And thanks to those who have stayed to the end of this post . I hope that you have found it worth the visit .
                First card will be hopefully suitable for 
   Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
