Less is More - Aqua

It's been a week and oh boy do I need to get inky.  Even then I was not able to even start doing things with card on Saturday evening until about 10 pm.   For all that I'm pleased with the result.

This week's 1st anniversary Less is More is a colour challenge - Aqua.    Thank goodness for ProMarkers and the cool aqua pen.   Simply scribbled down the card with the broad end.   Stamped the Fiskers Butterfly border over it with Momento Paris Dusk and then added some aqua coloured self adhesive pearls and some sparkly gems.   There is also an un-valentine challenge running this month at Flying Unicorn and I'll share this with them.

hopefully after a nights sleep I'll get more inky.

I love the shape and scale of where I now live and the drive to work through beautiful countryside with distant horizons.  Have simply had to stop a couple of time to try to capture the beauty with a camera.

 
Sun rise, just after 8am last Wednesday (1st February)   the line in the sky is a telegraph wire.

 On Friday I left work at about 4:30 just as the sun was going down behind fields brushed with the lightest dusting of snow.   Cold and crisp and clear.

  3. Bet it felt good to stamp, Zoe! Good for you. Hope you get more time to play today. Gorgeous photos. We've had some amazing skies with this clear, bright weather, haven't we? No snow here, thank goodness but in some ways I wish it would because it would then be a little warmer. Enjoy the rest of your weekend x
