Magical Monday - Less is More


Less is More when it comes to the Challenge over at There's Magic in the Air this fortnight.  Our challenge this week is brought to you by Ildiko and she describes the criteria for this challenge as follows.

1. Clean: the design is uncluttered with lots of white/negative or open space. Simple: having a clear focal point without a lot going on to detract from it. OR

2. Simple in design regardless of the number of embellishments or how long it takes to color, stitch or to use a special technique. OR

3. Can be copied and mass produced fairly quickly… usually without a lot of coloring, layers, embellishments, tools and/or techniques OR

4. any combination of the above




Image:  Egg Hunt by Paper Cupcakes,  Colour:   Tria Markers
Other:  SU Ribbon, Scallop Square Nesting Die, Viva Decor Pearl Pen, Tonic Corner Punch.

Upon seeing the easter inspired image provided for the DT, I automatically thought Spring Chicks and yellow came to mind, so da-da  yellow is the main colour of my card this week.  I kept the design Clean by having lots of white and Simple by adding just a ribbon and four pearls using my Viva Decor Pearl Pen to the punched corners of my my white background and a little bit to the sun.

Don't forget that if you use a Paper Cupcakes Image for your entries into the challenge you get a second entry into the random prize drawing.  Nina has made this super easy for you to do this fortnight as its Freebie Time and from now until Wednesday you can pick up the adorable 'Egg Hunt' image which has been showcased by all the DT simply by following the link over on the TIMITA Blog.

So remember Less is More and let's see those wonderful CAS Creations.

Very sweet indeed.
