Less is More challenge....

The ladies over at the Simply Less is More this week have chosen


AUTUMN
for this weeks challenge.  I've used part of a serviette which has leaves in it. Got a square of mount bound, split the  serviette down to one layer, painted the mount board with Mod Podge, placed my square of serviette on it, then brushed Mod Podge over the top.  Let it dry, then added some glitter and when that was dry put a  glaze all over the image, then mounted it onto a Nestie.  Serviettes are great for making card with as there are some beautiful ones out there. if you haven't tried it have a go....

This is really gorgeous Anne so very effective using the serviettes.

This is something I've never tried, a lady demoing alongside me a couple of weeks ago was doing something similar but making little Winter scenes with penguins and decided then I should give it a go. Just need to buy the serviettes.

Whoooooa that went over my head, will have to read this again to fully understand all the instructions. It mazes me sometimes what you ladies use to make cards and this is one I really have to concentrate on.

Thanks Jacqui for giving me some more ideas to try. Lovely card by the way.

Gorgeous Anne - but I have to admit I have seen some references to Mod Podge but have not got a clue what it is. This is really fantastic.

This is a good one for the autumn challenge - haven't done that technique for ages but have a large stash of serviettes!!

Elaine said...

Beautifully done. Love the leaves and that touch of glitter just finishes it nicely!!

Loli said...

Hola Anne, fantastic card, great colouring! i like your fleur de lis frame, gorgeous, great autumnal work.
Hugs from Palma and i hope to see you soon.

Linby said...

This is gorgeous and the die mount sets it off beautifully. I actually have a pack of serviettes I bought for this technique about 4 years ago, I recently began using them as serviettes as I couldn't bear to see them just sitting there anymore - maybe I will rescue one!

Susan said...

LOVE that frame...and the color of the leaf is fabulous! Lovely card!!

SYLVIA-ANNE said...

Ooooh Anne - your gorgeous card technique took me back a few years - I used to use the same formula to decorate large candles - it's so effective, and you have made a fabulous Autumnal card with this leaf pattern. Brilliant! (Love that Nestie frame too)!
Hugs, Sylvia xx

Anna said...

that is a stunning card. Those napkins are lovely, such a great colour and design! That nestie frame is one of my favourites - the pack didn't look inspiring, but when ever its used its always stunning!

Viv said...

Super card Anne and what a great idea using the serviette too, must remember that one, great sparkle on it too :) Viv xx

Sandy said...

I love this Anne - it is simple and beautiful -- really very pretty. Perfect Autumn card - I don't know how in the world you did this but so creative. Now just what is a serviette anyway - must be something British!!!!

Oh this is perfect, Anne! I love how you made the image, I never knew napkins would look so nice used in crafting, I really must have a go. Very inspiring project.

Deborah Frings said...

Oh Anne! This is lovely, the touch of sparkle on the leaf is fab! Love it.
